Randy risked it all for a box of strawberries.
A box of strawberries for a beautiful girl, one outside his league. All he wanted was a little bit extra to purchase an almost unobtainable luxury to impress a girl. He’d never expected the robbery to go so wrong, or to have to stop his friend from killing the innocent shop owner.
Luckily for him, the shop owner understands the bleak and futureless world they live in. And Julie, the girl of his dreams, doesn’t want strawberries.
She wants a revolution. Tired of government controlled, overregulated lives lived in overpopulated cities without even strawberries to enjoy, Julie wants freedom. Randy can help her get what she wants. Now along for the ride, the two of them turn to technology to start their insurgency.
But changing the world isn’t as fast or as easy as it seems in the movies. And it takes sacrifices neither Randy nor Julie imagined.
Marina Fontaine is an immigrant from the former Soviet Union. She uses personal experience to craft a novel that takes an intimate look at life in a totalitarian society and the role that individual choices play in advancing the cause of liberty.
Can Randy and Julie survive the wrath of an oppressive regime? Or will chasing freedom demand the ultimate cost?

Too Christian for Mainstream Publishing, Too Secular For Christian Publishing.
We occupy the space between both. Life isn't simple or free of trials, so why should fiction be?
We're not a "Christian Publisher". You'll find no limp-wristed, sanitized and boring fiction meant to browbeat readers into conversion.
Harkening back to Lewis, Tolkien, we aren't afraid to express our beliefs in the context of the story while keeping the creativity and wonder of speculative fiction. Faith has real power, in our world and in our books, and ignoring or being condescending about it leaves an entire facet of the human condition on the table.
There is no victory without trial, no dawn without night, and to write without that produces flat and uninspiring stories.
So if you're tired of nihilistic fantasy that revels in the worst of humanity, science fiction without the hope and wonder, adventure stories without heroes, Silver Empire is the publisher for you.
