If you fancy something a bit different, a bit speculative, have a look at Theta Head, my debut novel which was published by Caffeine Nights Publishing.
Here are the first 7 Chapters as a FREE mini-ebook. Enjoy!
Set very much in the present, Theta Head follows Georgia, a 25-year-old London woman whose search for her missing boyfriend is challenged by the very technology she believes caused his disappearance.
Theta Head is a novel which sits somewhere between contemporary fiction, speculative fiction, and present day science fiction. At its heart it is a modern-day mystery, one that explores the theme of how technology can bring people closer to themselves, as opposed to others. The central questions is: Will technology develop a mind of its own, or can it have ours?
The Theta Heads have seen a future in which communication technology has brought people closer to others and yet, ironically, has pushed them further away from themselves, leaving them with a worse quality of inner being.
They think people don’t have time to pay attention to what is inside anymore, and have therefore asked the question: What would happen if the technological paradigm is shifted to a more humane arena? What would arise – without the consultation of a good psychologist – when layer upon layer of superficial thought peels away to reveal the experience of stark naked consciousness itself? Would this be a place we would want to visit? Would we like or be able to deal with things that have long been buried and forgotten?
Georgia is about to find out.
