“Fast paced and full of heart! I gobbled up every word of this book buffet!” –Frank L. Cole Author of The Afterlife Academy 

Evertaster: The Delicious City. Cover by Goro Fujita.

The long anticipated sequel to Evertaster is now here. Readers have been asking me for this book for years, and I've finally finished the manuscript. First I had to tour 300 schools across the country, start my own publishing company, finish Evertaster: The Buttersmiths' Gold, publish Chum, kickstart Fetch, do animation for Warcraft and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and have 2 more children. Phew! Now I can finally tell you the next phase in the Johnsonville's story.

Here's what happens to Guster in this book: 

Ever since he took a bite of a legendary dessert last summer, twelve-year-old Guster Johnsonville has never been the same. In fact, when a strange little man dressed as a conquistador comes clattering into the barn at the back of the Johnsonville farmhouse one afternoon, he forces Guster to face the truth: Guster is now the most delicious thing in the whole world, and a terrible monster is coming to eat him. 

The monster is one of the Yummies—a pack of horrible, ferocious creatures with an appetite for sweets. What other choice do Guster, Zeke, and Mariah have than to run away from home to escape the mysterious beast? 

On the run in a far corner of the world, Guster and his siblings discover a secret settlement known as the Delicious City. Now, with the Yummies hot on their trail and the Delicious City’s Mayor determined to feed Guster to the beasts, Guster must embrace his talents as an Evertaster if he’s going to save the city from collapsing and get his family out alive.

If you enjoyed the first Evertaster, you're going to love this new adventure. Early readers gave it some good praise:

"Another well written book that lives up to the first two!! Can't wait to get an actual book!" --Melissa T.

"Amazing book! . . . I can't wait to see the final product. Expect me to be one of your first orders!!" --Ammon S.  

If you're new to the Evertaster Series, there are two books so far (three with the Delicious City). The original, Evertaster, debuted in 2012, and since then I've sold the movie rights, hit the Amazon Top 100 Overall Bestseller List, and toured the country, sharing my stories. 

 

The first Evertaster was followed by Evertaster 1 1/2 -- The Buttersmiths' Gold, a long novella (over 100 pages) telling the story of Torbjorn and Storfjell. Readers kept asking me about them, so I wrote a whole book to satisfy their curiosity.
