Book Description:

They weren’t supposed to have feelings.

Metal will Clash

In a not-too-distance future, robots composed of metal for bones, electric cords for veins, and synthetics for skin are now available. For purchase. Eighteen-year-old Vienna Avery’s home is going to change forever, now that her mom purchased an Italian Chef Robot to cook and reside in their house.

Secrets will Unfold

The government claimed robots were indifferent, unthinking pieces of metal and elastic—assistance for the help of humans. Vienna never believed much of what the government said. The pieces didn’t always fit. And now Vienna knows why, because she’s uncovered the government’s secret: that robots have emotions, sucking Vienna into the underground world of feeling, thinking, and sovereign robots.

Sparks will Fly

Alec Cypher is everything a robot is not supposed to be: deep, dark, and dangerously human. And for some reason, he wants to save Vienna from the government’s prying, vindictive eyes. Going forward, Vienna will have to learn to trust robots and battle the growing feelings she never thought possible . . . feelings for the green-eyed, soul-searching robot named Alec.

Available at Amazon

I never locked eyes with a robot before.
Not once.
I guess I thought it would feel different. But it doesn’t. Nothing is different. It feels the same, the same as looking into a human’s eyes.

About the Author:

Sheena Snow, contrary to her name, lives in South Florida and has only seen snow once. But she would love for it to land on her eyelashes and sparkle in her hair. She loves painting, candle making, orchid shows, tattoo conventions, hockey games and library book sales! After college she landed a full time job but kept serving pizza on the weekends and writing stories about characters she wished really existed, characters who never gave up no matter the obstacles life threw at them. At the age of twenty-six, she sold her first book and bought her very first puppy, a wonderful Yorkie named Aladdin.

Where are you from? South Florida
Tell us your latest news? My book officially releases on the 16th!! SPARKED (The Metal Bones Series Book 1)

What inspired you to write your first book? A dream I had.
Do you have a specific writing style? Yes. I have a full on young adult voice, the angst, the repetition, following the idea of finding out who you want to be.
How did you come up with the title? My writing friend, Kristin Wallace. The girl is brilliant when it comes to titles, query letters, blurbs, you name it.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? You get to chose who you want to be in life. You. No one else.
How much of the book is realistic? 20% Certain characters traits can drawn back to me and to people in my family.

The lack of communication in the family is also something that is similar to my family and something I’m working on correcting.
