The Buttersmiths’ Gold
BATTLES. BLUEBERRIES. BOVINES.
TORBJORN AND STORFJELL’S HISTORY UNFOLDS IN AN EPIC EVERTASTER NOVELLA.
Everyone knows the most coveted treasure of the Viking Age was blueberry muffins. Blueberry muffins so succulent that if you sniffed just a whiff, you’d want a whole bite. If you bit a bite, you’d want a batch; if you snatched a batch, you’d stop at nothing short of going to war just to claim them all.
Young Torbjorn Trofastsonn comes from the clan that makes them. He’s a Viking through and
through – he’s thirteen winters old, larger than most respectable rocks, and most of all, a Buttersmith. That’s what he thinks anyway, until a charismatic merchant makes Torbjorn question his place among the muffin-makers. When Torbjorn lets the secret of his clan’s muffin recipe slip, he calls doom and destruction down upon his peaceful village and forces his brother Storfjell and his clansmen to do the one thing they are ill-prepared to do: battle for their lives.

Evertaster, Book #1:
A legendary taste. Sought after for centuries. Shrouded in secrecy.
When eleven-year-old Guster Johnsonville rejects his mother’s casserole for the umpteenth time, she takes him into the city of New Orleans to find him something to eat. There, in a dark, abandoned corner of the city they meet a dying pastry maker. In his last breath he entrusts them with a secret: an ancient recipe that makes the most delicious taste the world will ever know — a taste that will change the fate of humanity forever.
Forced to flee by a cult of murderous chefs, the Johnsonvilles embark on a perilous journey to ancient ruins, faraway jungles and forgotten caves. Along the way they discover the truth: Guster is an Evertaster — a kid so picky that nothing but the legendary taste itself will save him from starvation. With the sinister chefs hot on Guster’s heels and the chefs’ reign of terror spreading, Guster and his family must find the legendary taste before it’s too late.
Author Adam Sidwell In between books, Adam Glendon Sidwell uses the power of computers to make monsters, robots and zombies come to life for blockbuster movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong, Transformers and Tron. After spending countless hours in front of a keyboard meticulously adjusting tentacles, calibrating hydraulics, and brushing monkey fur, he is delighted at the prospect of modifying his creations with the flick of a few deftly placed adjectives. He’s been eating food since age 7, so feels very qualified to write this book. He once showed a famous movie star where the bathroom was. Adam currently lives in Los Angeles, where he can’t wait to fall into the sea.
Hi there, everyone, Paul here today. I am happy to be a part of The Buttersmith’s Gold Blog Tour. I am posting an excerpt from Evertaster. Things have been busy around here as we have been working hard to help other children’s, middle grade, and YA authors promote their work. If there is one thing we feel strongly about here at Sher A. Hart, it is giving back. Sher has been hard at work editing, writing, and trying to take care of all the little things (and not so little) that seem to pop up. I have been getting back into the swing of things now that I am back to work following my shoulder injuries. I have also been having a new cover made for Lionel and the Golden Rule, as well as revising it. Okay, now that your all caught up, here is the excerpt. Enjoy!
“The eggbeater!” cried Guster as he realized what was happening. He lunged for the eggbeater, scooping it up as Mom pulled on his shirt and dragged him from the room. The doorframe of the back door bumped his shoulder hard as she yanked him into the alleyway.
The old Suburban screeched to a halt in front of them, knocking over a trashcan.
Zeke honked the horn. “Let’s get out of here, Mom!” he yelled. Guster had never been so glad to see Zeke in his life. He jumped into the back seat, slammed the door shut behind him, then smashed his hand down on the lock as the Suburban accelerated. The red-aproned chef burst into the alley, his cleaver wound up and ready to throw.
Guster ducked as the red chef hurled the giant knife. It flew, spinning straight toward the back door of the Suburban. The engine roared then metal clanged where the knife struck the car as they zoomed off into the night.
