BOOK TOUR FOR GIDEON'S SPEAR BY DARBY KARCHUT

Today, I'm honored to introduce you to GIDEON'S SPEAR by my dear friend and awesome author Darby Karchut, published by Spencer Hill Press/Spence City.

 

“For Finn MacCullen, it's time to Irish up.

 

With a shout, Finn held the spear aloft. "Come along, ye manky beasties," he yelled, throwing every bit of Gideon-ness he could into his voice. "I've a wee point to share with ye!" Gripping the end of the shaft in both hands, he swung it around and around over his head, creating a whistling sound. "Faugh a ballagh!" "The Spear!" Goblin voices screeched in panic. "The Spear of the Tuatha De Danaan!"

 

"Yeah, you got that right!" Finn yelled back.

 

When a power-crazed sorceress and the neighborhood pack of beast-like goblins team up and threaten both his master and his friends, thirteen-year-old Finn (not Finnegan) MacCullen does the only thing an apprentice monster hunter can do: he takes the fight to the enemy. And woe to the foe he meets along the way.”

 
Finally, we're about to follow Finn, from the first novel in the series FINN FINNEGAN, on his next adventures. I would not want to be this teen's foe.
