C. L. Daviesabout this book: Automaton is a futuristic twisted romance, set on an island where the lives of its A.I. inhabitants are played out for the entertainment of viewers and gamers in the real world. As 'pink sci-fi,' it looks at relationships and obsession, in a future where gaming and reality TV has gone to extremes.
Automaton is all about the story and those that populate its pages, and wastes no words 'with fluff description.'
Lily and Dean share a deep and endearing love, until jealous gamer Luke sickens of it and snaps. His actions cause a series of events, both in the real and cyber world, with devastating consequences to both human and non-human alike. Meanwhile Amelia, a GameWorld fanatic, will stop at nothing to ensure her Characters happiness, and CEO Madison must face his demons. This fast-paced story is a rollercoaster of unseen twists and turns.
Automaton was inspired by the author's continuing obsession with reality TV – she admits that in the thrall of 'Big Brother' she happily watched the contestants as they slept! Cheryl now enjoys life with her first baby, a gorgeous girl, and writes her fourth novel over the beautiful bundle as she feeds and naps.
