We're looking for fiction manuscripts that are literary and have a good regional flavor. We prefer settings in the Western US and the South Pacific.

We're also thinking of having a poetry chapbook contest and would love your feedback on this, especially how much $ and copies should be given, as well as nominations for judges. We are partial to experimental poetry, especially the prose poem.

MOLOKA'I NUI AHINA is now available @ Borders Ala Moana and also Borders Waipahu in the Waikele Mall. We're doing a Book Launch in Las Vegas from Oct. 18 thru the 23rd, so if you're in the Vegas area we'd love for you to stop by and meet the author. Email us and I'll give you times and dates for his book signings. You can also catch Kirby Wright on internet radio out of Las Vegas weekday mornings @ 10 on:

Some of the recent topics discussed are the reason why Kirby wrote the chapter "Luau at the Moloka'i Shores," how good a surfer Cameron Diaz is, what kind of rifle Gramma used, and the best places to get PORK HASH dimsum in Honolulu!

Review by MAUI WEEKLY:



We are pleased to announce the publication of Kirby Wright's second novel, one that could be considered a companion novel to his earlier PUNAHOU BLUES.

Ever wonder how Ben and Jeff Gill spent their summers on Moloka'i? Well, wonder no longer. Follow them as they roam a paradise of fishponds, herds of wild deer, isolated bays, and rugged coastlines. And meet their Grandmother, the island's first woman paniolo (cowboy) who teaches the boys the ways of rural Hawai'i and instills in them a pride for the land and their Hawaiian history.

The early reviews have been terrific. Joseph Bean of the MAUI WEEKLY says the writing is 'powerful' and compares MOLOKA'I NUI AHINA to ANGELA'S ASHES, BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA, and KITE RUNNER.

This is a limited first edition so I would recommend placing your order asap.
