Welcome to Evertaster The Buttersmiths Gold Author Adam Sidwell! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to answer some questions about your life and book!
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.
Evertaster The Buttersmiths Gold Interview with Adam Sidwell:
Please tell us in 20 words or less, why we should read your book.
Because if you do, you’ll get the pleasure of tasting delicious things in your mind without all the added calories.
What book is on your night stand now?
Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino, a set of short stories. In my favorite one so far the moon orbits so close to Earth, you can row out into the sea, climb up a ladder, and skip across the moon’s surface.
Do you have plans for a new book? Goals for future projects?
I’m currently working on the next book in the Evertaster series, The Delicious City. It continues the adventures of Guster and the Johnsonvilles as they travel to a far off forbidden (and hidden) city.
Did you lose any characters along the way?
There were some triplets in the Johnsonville family that ended up having no purpose. My agent suggested I axe them. I did, and it was a good idea.
Facebook or Twitter?
Who designed the cover of your book?
Goro Fujita, Dreamworks concept artist. If it looks a little like Megamind or Madagascar, that’s because Goro worked on those films too.
Which author would you love to co-author a book with?
Roald Dahl. First, because he’s dead, and he could tell me about the afterlife between chapters. Second, because his stories are so full of whimsy, and I’m almost out.
Give us a one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Evertaster: A couple of kids go on a dangerous journey across the world through jungles and caves, all in search of the most delicious taste in all of history. The Buttersmiths’ Gold: A couple of Vikings are so good at making blueberry muffins that everyone tries to steal those muffins.
What genre does your book fall under?
The Evertaster series is Middle Grade Mystery/Adventure. You could say it falls under the “Delicious” genre, but I don’t think bookstores have a shelf for that yet.
Tell everyone where they can go to stay up to date on your latest news!
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I would! I am delighted because the last movie I worked on (I make monsters for movies) before Evertaster was published is called Pacific Rim, and it’s coming out this summer. I finally get to see my monsters alive!
Evertaster 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
