Publisher:  Rebelight Publishing
Publication Date:  August 31, 2016

“I surrender my days, my efforts, myself to the OneEarth Bank . . .”

After fleeing slavery, Rielle James burns with the desire to topple OneEarth Bank and end its enslavement of young people as Contracts. When she learns that her friend Nathan has been sold to a logging company where Contracts die or vanish without a trace, she assumes a false identity and becomes a slave again to help him escape.

Her act of subversion uncovers the horrific truth behind the OneEarth Bank’s role in Contract disappearances and its link to a global pandemic.

Can Rielle and Nathan escape and expose the truth before it’s too late?

3 Fun Facts About  SUBVERSION from the Author

Fun Fact #1

I wrote the entire three-book series in nine months. With gestating children behind me, I decided to spend the time writing a few YA dystopian novels.

Fun Fact #2

I’d received a lot of rejections for Enslavement, book one in the series. So, I trunked the manuscript. I had no intention of pulling it out again. I figured I would chalk it up to good practice. However, I decided to give it one more edit, then submit it one more time and if that didn’t work, then I’d trunk it for reals. Needless to say, it worked! I found a publisher for the series.

Fun Fact #3

I named the villain after a former male friend from high school. I have no ill feelings toward the guy, I just thought he had an evil sounding name.

Other Books in the Series:

“One world. One currency. One bright future.”

That’s the promise made by OneEarth Bank after a global economic collapse–but only for those who accept the insertion of a commerce chip.

When Rielle’s parents refuse to comply, government officials tear her family apart. As punishment for her parent’s crimes, Rielle is forced into a Community Service Contract–a legalized form of slavery–and sold to a wealthy, abusive banker.

The Banker’s secrets hold the key to Rielle’s freedom, but will she risk prison or even death to escape and search for her family?
