Alchemist Gift in 2nd Place

Goodreads Giveaway sponsored by Jeff Napolitano of California Times Publishing

Alchemist Gift in a nutshell

Alchemist Gift is Time Travel to the Age of Alchemy with Renaissance history action, 3D characters you love and hate, beautiful descriptions that put you into scenes of Italy & Bavaria and the lives of the characters, and uplifting assurance of the goodness of man, with a satisfying ending.

Goodreads review

I did a beta read of the book. Alchemist Gift was difficult to put down. It satisfies on so many levels. The author has done his homework on the Renaissance period of the late 1400s, early 1500s. He captures the politics, culture and religion of the times through six love stories. The human condition is apparent in the characters with love, desire, lust, kindness, brutality, spirituality, and courage. There are many strong women in the story who are strong for their character and confidence. From philosophy to science and science fiction the book introduces you to the ancient Bagdad battery that powers a Renaissance version of a laser beam up to the magical Alchemist Cabinet. The characters experience time in a non-linear fashion reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez in “One Hundred Years of Solitude”. The descriptions made me feel like I was there experiencing the events with all my senses. There is action, adventure, magic, romance, history, culture and more. This book is a full course meal.

Amazon Description

“A style reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s magical realism.” – Red City Review.

If you had the chance to travel to a different time period, would you do the same things?

How does indecisive grad student Roland Hughes find himself cheating on his longtime girlfriend Liz, with a rich, Ferrari-driving, Lila Thurston, who involves him in her four hundred fifty thousand dollar heist? That’s just the beginning of his woes. He has haunting visions of Renaissance men and women pulling him back to a time of witchcraft, magic, curses, and Alchemy. Roland pays dearly for his fling with Lila, and desperately wishes for another chance. The cosmos hear him, and deliver help with the enchanted Alchemist cabinet for a new life and time. Will he redeem himself or chase the same temptations?

Defeat ISIS through Solidarity

Alchemist Gift

Alchemist Gift.  Don’t let ISIS win. Embrace your fellow man.

We Are All One

One of the themes of “Alchemist Gift” is “We are all one.” We are all part of the human experience, subject to its pinnacles of greatness and selflessness and to the depths of desperation and self-destruction. What we do and the way we react has far reaching effects. The mindset and solutions our ancestors developed affect us today. How we react to the tragedy in Paris and toward the people living and from middle-eastern countries currently in war and turmoil will effect generations to come.

ISIS seeks to divide us

One of the goals of Isis is to be a divisive force. They hope that through their cowardly actions, non-Muslims should look on all Muslims with suspicion, fear and ultimately hatred; to focus on making two camps: us and them.  If that happens they have succeeded. We cannot afford the luxury of that gut response of misguided revenge toward the vast majority of Muslims who share our same values. We are all one, Find the good in a stranger and you will find the good in yourself. There are many forms of strength. Understanding and acceptance are a couple that come to mind.

Alchemist Gift message 'We Are All One'. Don't let the forces of ISIS divide us. Click To Tweet

For your children, your grandchildren and generations to come, stick together, every ethnicity, every race, every religion, men and women, all people of good will. We are all needed to defeat the forces of ISIS. This is how you defeat an enemy.

Will you be part of the solution? Let everyone know by leaving a message in the comments below.
