Chameleon Releases Today!

"Wow! A fast-paced, science fiction delight with fabulous action, a seamless world, and the most unique characters I've read in a long time." Elana Johnson, Author of the Possession Series.








What I learned writing Chameleon:
Never give up.
I know it’s a mantra you hear a lot of authors mutter. The reason, of course, is that it’s true. It doesn’t matter what your process is, or what path you’re set on taking. The only time you will not succeed, is if you give up. On the surface it sort of sounds easy, but we all know it’s not. You have to do so much of it on your own, because in the end, no one but you can write your stories.
I learned this because Chameleon has had a very long journey to get to this point. It got me my first agent. And with that my first round of rejections. We took feedback into consideration and reworked a few sections, bringing it deeper into the science fiction realm. But by then anything resembling dystopian was anathema, and our next round of responses reflected this.
Which is fine, because this is how the ball bounces. It’s how the industry has always worked. You shelve your book, and wait for the next go around of what you’ve written to become popular.
Only now, in 2015, you have two options. You can either shelve it, or you can choose the form of torture known as self publishing (lots of work here folks). I chose the latter, but had I chose the former, I still wouldn’t have given up. Because then where would I be?
 
The Blurb:
When Sai's newly awoken psionic powers accidentally destroy her apartment complex, she’s thrown into an intensive training program. Her only options are pass or die.
Surviving means proving her continued existence isn't a mistake--a task her new mentor, Bastian, takes personally. Her abilities place her in the GNW Enforcer division, and partners her with Domino 12, who is eerily human for an alien-parasite psionic hybrid.
After eliminating an Exiled scientist, she discovers nothing is what it seems. With each mission more perilous, Sai must figure out who to trust before her next assignment becomes her last.

Me Squared
KT Hanna has a love for words so extreme, a single word can spark entire worlds.
Born in Australia, she met her husband in a computer game, moved to the U.S.A. and went into culture shock. Bonus? Not as many creatures specifically out to kill you.
When she's not writing, she freelance edits for Chimera Editing, interns for a NYC Agency, and chases her daughter, husband, corgis, and cat. No, she doesn't sleep. She is entirely powered by the number 2, caffeine, and beef jerky.
