Dear Andy,
Thank you for your question. Very happy to know that you are looking forward to reading book two of the series.

I am an independent author and as a result I'm unable to write full-time (although that is the dream : ). Thus between work and raising a family it is difficult to find pockets of time to complete the next books. I have 200 pages completed for Book II of Dark Legacy and I'm in the process of editing a travel memoir that I will most likely publish in 2016. Once the travel memoir is complete I will then focus all my available time in finishing Book II - Travels of Dark Legacy. I'm very excited by the direction of the story of Book II and I know that patient readers like you will definitely enjoy where Kieko's story is headed. So with that said I expect to publish the next Dark Legacy book in 2017.

In the mean time you can check out a steampunk short story I wrote entitled The Astor House of Old Shanghai on Wattpad (https://www.wattpad.com/user/TheLegac...).
I plan to post another sci-fi short story, chapters from the travel memoir, and perhaps the first few chapters of Book II in 2016 on Wattpad.

Stay in touch and support Indy writers.

Dear Slick,
Thank you for your question. I have considered releasing Dark Legacy: Book I - Trinity as an audio book, but haven't pursued that project just yet. Perhaps next summer (2015) I will begin pursuing that possibility. I will let you know if plans for the audio book do move forward.
With Magic,

Domenico Composto-Hart Finally, it is here! I am very pleased to announce that my new book, a travel memoir entitled Travels in the Land of Hunger, is now available on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/author/domenic...

The Kindle version is already ranked #1 in the "New Releases in Far East Asia Travel" category!

Order your copy for the holidays!

In the spring of 2004 - after living in Tokyo, Japan for over three years pursuing a career as a freelance musician - science fiction and fantasy author Domenico Italo Composto-Hart set off on a half-year backpacking journey through the lands of East and Southeast Asia, Siberia, Central Russia, the Baltic states, the Nordic countries, and Eastern and Western Europe.

Traveling by foot, bus, train, and boat - and seeing the world through the analytical lens of anthropology, archaeology, and economics - Domenico documents, researches, and deciphers the developing nations he encounters as they rise through the turbulence of unregulated Western capitalism and globalization.

Travels in the Land of Hunger is the author's reflective account of the dark, long-lasting impact of Western colonialism and imperialism, the Vietnam War, the Khmer Rouge regime, the 1997 Asian financial crisis, and the sex tourism and sex trafficking industries in Southeast and East Asia. It is also a narrative of finding exotic beauty, inspiration, inner strength, and unexpected love.


Domenico Composto-Hart Just updated my blog (after a two year hiatus) with a post entitled "The Sting and I" providing an account of the musical events (performing with Lene Nystrom of Aqua and meeting Sting backstage) that led to my exit from Japan to pursue a six-month, solo backpacking journey through East and Southeast Asia, Siberia, Central Russia, the Baltic states, the Nordic countries, and Eastern and Western Europe.

This will be the first in a weekly to biweekly series of posts providing excerpts of chapters from my forthcoming travel memoir entitled Travels in the Land of Hunger, which will be published internationally on November 21, 2019.

Photos from my journey through Asia and Europe as detailed in the book will be published on my social media platforms in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

Story synopsis below.
-----------------------------
The Great Quake of 2022. "It all ended in that year." Japan destroyed by a series of earthquakes and tsunamis.

"Then the Great Quake of 2025 threw the whole of the Pacific Coast of the United States into the sea." Crippled by the Great Recession, strained by the heavy burden of an ever-expanding national deficit, the land of the free would soon cease to exist.

The People's Republic of China rose to primacy during the 2030s - the decade that the European Union dissolved as rising nationalism, populism, and xenophobia ripped the political and economic fabric of the confederation apart - leaving the continent to fall dangerously into another Dark Age.

This is the forbidding world that maverick MotoGP rider Lleónart Blanc was born into. Sponsored by his corporate patron Takagawasan, the White Lion will deliver the first Grand Prix World Championship to the Federation of Catalan City-States in 2056. A victory meant to ignite an insurgence against the autocratic order of the Federation of North African States.

But all does not go according to plan ...

Domenico Composto-Hart Check out the brilliant steampunk cover design by James T. Egan of Bookfly Design for my short-story The Astor House of Old Shanghai @ http://www.wattpad.com/story/5794084-...
The cover illustration is by famed matte painter and concept artist Wayne Haag (http://www.ankaris.com/) of the films The Fifth Element, The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers (LOTR), The Wolverine, and The Maze Runner.
I have been doing historical research on the Boxer Rebellion, colonialism, and imperialism during the late Victorian period for the past couple of years with the intent to eventually expand The Astor House short story into a full-length novel.
In the mean time enjoy what will serve as the first chapter of the book.

Domenico Composto-Hart I have released my steampunk short story The Astor House of Old Shanghai on Wattpad @
http://www.wattpad.com/story/5794084-...
The story was originally published in Issue 5 (September 2011) of Science Fiction Freedom E'zine by Peter Saga.
The cover illustration for the story was by Wayne Haag (concept artist for such films as The Fellowship of the Rings, The Wolverine, and The Maze Runner).
The story will ultimately be expanded into a full length novel, but I must first complete a travel memoir I've been working on while trying to find time to complete a first draft of Dark Legacy: Book II - Travels.
In the mean time, please enjoy The Astor House of Old Shanghai.
