My name is Kip Pettigrew, I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I've finally decided to take my passion to the next level and publish one of my books.  Pledge is the first in a three book series, The Guild Memoirs.  I'm finishing the preparations for a Dec publish date and I am raising money to fund the paperback printing of the book.  If funding and demand is high enough I will also print hard back copies.

Your thoughts and opinions are not your own. For millennia human civilization has been led and influenced by secret guilds made up of individuals who, at all times, transmit their feelings and personality to the unknowing masses. They control public opinion. They are why good men die for causes they don’t believe in. They are why you feel strongly about things that should not concern you. The Guild Memoirs is the life story of one such telepath and how his life has affected us all.


Pledge: Troy Williamson was a typical boy in a dysfunctional American family. That life ended the day he began telepathically influencing those around him. Unable to return home, Troy becomes a pledge of the Noreastern Guild, one of the secret societies that control regional identity and belief. As he struggles to master his abilities, Troy discovers he has gifts different even from his fellow telepaths and secrets he dare not share, even with his mentor. Troy hopes to become a guild brother and help mankind, but his power could be the biggest threat the guild has ever known.
