About this project

Over 23,000 readers have enjoyed the series, "The Life and Times of a Hawaiian Tiki Bar".  

Contribute or Participate!  We'll write you, your character, into the book!

The first book, "The Parrot Talks in Chocolate" has been richly reviewed and loved by many thousands.  The follow up, "In the Middle of the Third Planet's Most Wonderful of Oceans" carries on the magic.  "Tiwaka Goes to Waikiki" highlights big adventure between the Hawaiian islands and cultures that find themselves there.

The 4th in the series will focus back on the island of Maui and Tiwaka's Tiki Bar and Grill, home to Tiwaka, of course, the Bartender, his beautiful Tahitian  wife, Sandy, and a host of other wonderful characters.  

This book will be at least 50,000 words and is expected to sell at least 10,000 copies.  

Get in on the action in a way you've never had a chance to do before!

How will the money be spent?  At least $6,000 will be spent on marketing the book ... so, you'll be more famous!  Approximately $2,000 on professional polishers (editors, etc).  Approximately $1,000 on rewards.

What money do I, the author, get out of this?  My reward is in book sales, exclusively.
