Friends, Romans, bums off the street, if you can read this, and you’re anywhere near Provo, you are invited to the launch party for my latest book, GIDEON VERSUS THE GODS OF COOL, a Young Adult Urban Fantasy/Humor novel for all ages. The event is this Friday at 6:30 PM at the Provo City Library, Bullock Room (#309). Come enjoy some pizza, meet the author, hear a story, and chortle with fellow book lovers. It’s free and totally casual, so even if you can only make it for a few minutes, just come.
This book was years in the making, and it was recently picked up by Beacon Publishing Group in NYC. It’s available in stores and online (https://tinyurl.com/y3kpnh4l) in paperback, audio book, and Kindle, though I won’t be selling books at the party. I’m just hoping to share a good time and get the word out.

Gideon Greenwich, a delinquent nerd, is given two choices: join the football team or be expelled.
To be “initiated” into the team, Gideon attends a violent fraternity party, where he has a startling discovery: the jocks are being controlled by an evil god of sports! As the conspiracy unfolds, it appears that the entire high school has been hijacked by otherworldly beings posing as teachers. To resist their dark powers, Gideon must look beyond social cliques and team up with star quarterback, Doug Rock, and the beautiful cheerleader, Cynthia McDaniels.
Together, the unlikely friends take on the god of sports, the goddess of fashion, and the god of popularity. But defying the “gods of cool” takes courage, a willingness to look stupid, and mind-bending adventures through parallel universes. In this thoughtful and hilarious critique of high school life, national award-winning storyteller, Stephen Gashler, will make you question what it means to be “cool”.
