The Pioneer - telepathy can be taught

Free Kindle e-book 1st and 2nd July.

The Pioneer is free for the next 48 hours, please feel free to download this novel. Spanning two centuries and three continents, it explores the next step in evolution, but is steadfastly human.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Pioneer-...1177620&sr=8-1

The pitch:
Oliver Trent fires a gun in the deserted city of old Pompeii. Thomas Kealy, the man he met only days before, waits in the gloom, confident that he will not be hurt. He has persuaded Oliver to shoot him, as an experiment in influence. Oliver is sceptical, but plays along; he pretends. Then anger overcomes him...then happiness, then fear. He is confused. He pulls the trigger.

Thomas reels - but he is triumphant. In situations of intensity he really can change the way people feel. He is telepathic.

So begins an unequal friendship – Oliver, the awestruck traveller, who devotes himself to recording a life of great significance…and Thomas, the Pioneer. As Thomas ages prematurely, wasted by his talent, he seeks to prove that he is not alone.

The traces of pioneers past and present are revealed, across centuries and continents. But Thomas cannot find the community of telepaths that he knows must exist. The one constant in his life is Oliver…but he too has a history, and his mind is unquiet.

FREE NOVEL, 24th July

The Pioneer is free today on Kindles.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Pioneer-...3169213&sr=1-4

This novel is free on a promotion this weekend.

It traces the rise and decline of a young man with rudimentary telepathic ability. The narrator, his loyalty challenged at every turn by The Pioneer's cynicism and superiority, must balance the privilege of shaping history with the damage done to his own mind.

Comments I have received:
"I found this to be a very stylish and accomplished piece of writing."

"This is heady writing..."

"Wow. This is a powerful book."


I hope you enjoy it.
