*Grabby Hands* Release with Excerpt + Giveaway - Parasite (The Domino Project #3) by K.T. Hanna


Title: Parasite (The Domino Project #3) 
Release date:  February 22nd, 2016
Author: K.T. Hanna
Amaranthine Press

About the book:

With the Damascus closing in on the Exiled, Sai and Dom must put their grief and inner demons aside as they rush to free the people of the Protected Conglomerate from the influence of the psionic grid.

Chipped and placed under house arrest with a guard, Bastian's only hope lies in reaching his core to disrupt Deign's ruthless plan.

Intent on putting a stop to the Damascus and the GNW's reign, Dom discovers the true extent of the parasite within. Just when Sai thinks the Exiled have a chance, their greatest weapon turns on them.

Here's a guide to the series:

Chameleon (The Domino Project #1)
Goodreads Amazon

“Hanna takes familiar sci-fi genre elements… and spins dystopian gold.” Kirkus Reviews

Book 1 & 2 on Sale for $0.99 to celebrate Parasite’s Release.



Hybrid (The Domino Project #2)

Fun Facts about The Domino Project:

The Domino Project idea came from an amalgamation of two other ideas.

Neither of the base ideas behind the book featured Sai as the main character.

Chameleon got K.T. her first ever agent

In the original draft Bastian and Dom got mixed up in scenes far more than K.T. likes to admit.

Sai’s name is – you guessed it – partially due to the Japanese weapon Sai. This reflects a base of her heritage and her abilities.

Bastian was named because KT’s never been able to get the name out of her head since hearing a German 90’s song called: Bastian.

Dom is short for Domino. KT feels no pride in her lack of creativity in this regard.

Nimue was named because of an old Everquest character KT used to raid with.

Originally there was no double agent, but it made the plotline difficult to pull off and one of KT’s cps got into the genius juice during brainstorming and made the suggestion  - and here we are!

Deign was always a bitch.

At one point, the book was called Ebony, for one of the materials that make up the game piece also called Dominos. Ivory and Bone were also considered as names for the sequels at that point.

After extensive revisions of book one, Hybrid and Parasite required a lot of adjusting - which included the removal of two characters and the insertion of Sai’s healing abilities.

In hindsight naming Mathur such was a bad idea. The amount of times autocorrect insisted he was mother are too many to count.


The whole first ten chapters of Parasite had to be mostly rewritten.

And now... Book #3



Excerpt:

Pieces of Iota’s devastation spread like breadcrumbs around its site. Flames still cling to odd pieces of cargo and hull, and a faint psionic shield wavers unsteadily, flickering in and out of effectiveness as the sun sets. A portion of the lowerhull teeters precariously under the shielding, as if a soft breeze could blow it over.
Dom brings Meleto a halt and steps out slowly. Rapidly switching his vision through infrared and thermal, he approaches the fading barrier, which appears to be shielding them from the fading rays of light, but could also be attuned for protection.
Behind a stack of rubble, much of which appears to be various appendages of Damascus soldiers, is a soft thermal glow. The shield wavers and blinks out as the final rays of the sun end in a dull red glimmer. Dom moves closer, pushing back the darkness that threatens to overtake him as panic works itself into knots in his brain. There’s no time for it now; he can’t let it control him. He rounds the final portion of rubble mixed with oddly melted adrium, devoid of its electricity, frozen into a rigid splashes of the metal, and steels himself
