Koa Books was also the only Hawai'i publisher with both a national and a local distributor, someone who could effectively get my story into the hands of my three primary audiences—Americans long fascinated by Hawai'i, visitors who seek a deeper understanding of the people they encounter during their island travels, and local Hawai'i residents whose lives have too often been represented superficially in American literature.
