BLOG TOUR, GUEST POST & GIVEAWAY: The History Major by Michael Phillip Cash


The History Major



After a vicious fight with her boyfriend followed by a night of heavy partying, college freshman Amanda Greene wakes up in her dorm room to find things are not the same as they were yesterday. She can't quite put her finger on it. She's sharing her room with a peculiar stranger. Amanda discovers she's registered for classes she would never choose with people that are oddly familiar. An ominous shadow is stalking her. Uncomfortable memories are bubbling dangerously close to her fracturing world, propelling her to an inevitable collision between fantasy and reality. Is this the mother of all hangovers or is something bigger happening?

Praise

"Cash never shies away from tough topics and themes; however, in The History Major his exploration of certain thematic elements goes deeper than usual. His love of history combined with a keen sense of human nature has provided a riveting story that deals with trauma, grief, acceptance, and finding inner strength. Cash has created a multi-dimensional experience between plot and character through the exploration of dreams and historical figures. He has created a riveting sense of perplexity that lingers long after the last page and author's note.”—Bianca Schulze, Book Reviewer

"Cash intermingles beauty and violence ...It's smartly ambiguous and open to interpretation, and some may delight in a second (or third) read." Kirkuk Reviews

GUEST POST:

Michael Phillip Cash has a love of history. The History Major is a multi-dimensional experience between plot and character through the exploration of dreams and historical figures. Here are eleven historical facts to know before or after reading the book:

1- Pope Alexander VI had many illegitimate children, but his favorites were Juan, Caesar, Lucretia, and Geoffrey. They were his children with his longest mistress Vanozza.dei Cattanei.

2- Pope Alexander VI's real name was Rodrigo Borgia.

3- Pope Alexander VI was the first Spanish pope.

4- Aristotle had a bushy beard.

5- Aristotle did not want to teach women.

6- Aristotle was a student of Socrates.

7- Aristotle was the tutor of Alexander the Great.

8- Joan of Arc requested men's clothing in prison to deter rape.

9--Joan of Arc was actually charged with the heresy of cross-dressing in men's clothing and ultimately burned at the stake for that. 

10- During the 1400's, many people compared life's ups and downs to being on a wheel of fortune. When life was going well, they often expected it to take a turn for the worst. In fact King Edward IV had a picture painted with a wheel of fortune over his head.

11- Joan of Arc attempted to escape by climbing out of her tower and was transferred to a more secure one.
