Wordless Wednesday – Captain Cooked Cooking, Borders Cooked

Due to the impending Borders Book Store chain bankruptcy filing this week, Borders stores in Hawaii have had to cancel their highly anticipated author book signing event of Captain Cooked by S.P. Grogan.

“I am extremely disappointed,” said author Grogan, “Especially since the Borders in Kailua-Kona had sold out of all their inventory of Captain Cooked.” It is expected Borders locally will continue to be open and operating as usual after the bankruptcy filing.

I got a chance to review the book back in August

Captain Cooked Book Signing Tour, labeled “Beware of Boiling Cauldrons,” is still scheduled to be at other island locations.  A part of the book sale proceeds is being contributed to the island’s Food Basket program, so the non-profit food bank organization is encouraging fans of island mystery thrillers, as well as good eats, to turn out.

"Watch out for boiling cauldongs", S.P. Grogan wrote inside the copy of my book
