Banded: Free eBook for Kindle, Nook, and Apple
Editor’s Note: BANDED features a strong female protagonist who won’t take no for an answer.
Book Description: In the future, citizens are given permanent bands on their sixteenth birthdays that monitor them at all times. Sixteen-year-old Kalenna Slater just got hers, and she’s determined to break down the corrupt government that has enslaved so many. It’s only when she finds out a secret about her missing father, though, that presents both a road bump and an opportunity that she has to decide to take or not. Along with some new friends, and a love interest named Gavin, they set out to change what has hurt so many.

Author’s Inspiration: I wanted to imagine a world where the government has full control over its people, and nobody is allotted their freedoms. With so much unrest in the world today, I felt as though people could connect to this possibility, and also to a younger girl who has lived through the worst of it and wants to change things for not only herself and her family, but also everyone else in the country. It was of extreme importance that the main character, Kalenna, be smart, funny, and especially strong, while still having that air of trepidation and sense of uncertainty in herself.
I am a writer of young adult fiction in all sub-genres. I’ve done paranormal, dystopian, contemporary romance, even even an urban fantasy that has never seen the light of day. I pride myself on being able to make large worlds that deal with the issues of today, both positive and not so positive. Readers should pick up my book if they want to be taken to a new world that one day just might be in their own backyard. I became an author because I had always wanted to write a novel sometime in my life. On winter break in 2012, I decided that was the time to do it, and I haven’t looked back since. I graduated from college, but now I write full time and am lucky enough to make a living with it without needing to use this new and very shiny degree I was awarded.
