The KONA MYSTERY CONTEST has now ended. One winner turned out to be a big Birtcher fan! I got a real kick out of the response sent by, Kimberly Gillaspie.

Angels FallI’m so excited to have won and to have an autographed book by Baron!  I just loved Ruby Tuesday and (Roadhouse) Hard Days Night.  Can’t wait to read this one.  No need to waste the postage, I’ll stop by your office to pick up my prize.  Baron can address the book to Kimberly Gillaspie.  I  would like the Quinn’s gift certificate please. Thank you so much, it was fun and a unique concept…congratulations for being so innovative!


John Sevick was the winner of the drawing for the first week held on Sept. 19th. 

… thanks for the delightful news.  If the Costco card is still available, that’d be great.  Their regular gas is “ONLY” $3.969 per gallon this morning … 

Mahalo nui loa!  John Sevick

If you’re asking, “What contest?”, you haven’t been listening to LAVA 105.3 radio. The contest introduced my  latest celebrity listing, KAMAHALE at Ohai Estates.  CLICK HERE and follow the link to my web site to enter. It is not too late! You still have a week to win. The last drawing will be held at midnight on Friday, October 3, 2008. It is really easy to enter now that this amazing listing, KAMAHALE at Ohai Estates, has been released for sale. The prize for the last drawing will be a $100 gift certificate from Jack’s Diving Locker (known as Jake’s in the Mike Travis Books), an autographed copy of “Angels Fall” and a CD of Music from The Red Bar.

Baron is also a gifted musician and The Red Bar is located in the kitchen of KAMAHALE.Baron has confirmed that Snyder’s, which serves as something of a second home for his central character, Mike Travis, is modeled after Quinn’s, located across the street from the King Kam Hotel on Palani St. Lolo’s is Lulu’s. Jake’s Diving Locker is really Jack’s Diving Locker, world renouned amoung scuba divers. Read his mysteries carefully and you are likely to spot many friends and acquaintances from Kona as well as places in his books.Birtcher’s home,

KAMAHALE at Ohai Estates, takes its name from the fictional family name of Mike Travis’ mother. It also represents hale for house and kama for a place of birth. An apt name for the home in which Birtcher’s characters were conceived and evolved. All his books to date have been written there. The next book will hit the shelves in 2009.
