I'm absolutely amazed and honoured today that my novella
 Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave is included in the 40 Best Books About Human Rights by Accredited Online Colleges! This list has some amazing and thought-provoking books on there concerning all human rights issues from Genocide and Civil Rights to Slavery, Trafficking, and Women's Rights. Included on the list are autobiographies by Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr.

I've read some of the other  books on the list but I will definitely be checking out the others. A lot of these books concern global issues that are going on right under our noses, and yet they are often not in the media so this kind of exposure is fantastic. There's no doubt that they are all eye-openers - stories that need to be told.

About Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave

My name is Elena and I used to be a human being. Now I am a sex slave.
If you are reading this diary then I am either dead or I have managed to escape…


Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave is a gritty, gripping, and tear-jerking novella, inspired by real victims’ accounts and research into the sex trafficking underworld.

It is estimated that 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year – 80% of these are women and girls. (Source: U.S. Department of State, Trafficking in Persons Report: 2007)

"Hodge took her readers to a rare journey that touches and break the hearts all at the same time through the eyes of Elena, the victim to whom the diary belongs. While reading, I could feel the victim’s emotions pouring through; her sadness, frustration, anger and fear bundled into a giant seemingly endless burden. Hodge really did a great job in describing everything, no matter how explicit it was." -- The Bornean Bookworm

"Although the subject is a devastating one this story is beautifully written by Hodge. Hodge does a wonderful job, she manages to take you on this gritty journey leaving you breathless at the end. I highly recommend this novel! It is extremely moving, you will not be disappointed." -- Boekie's Book Reviews

"Heart wrenching and well written" -- Can't Put It Down

"This story is utterly heartbreaking. Some of the things that happen to Elena are truly horrific but somehow she never quite loses hope that she will be reunited with her daughter again. Being written in diary form I could see her in my head and I truly felt the things she was going through. I am not ashamed to admit I was in tears in places." -- Wistful Kimmie's Book Reviews
