J.S. Snow

JS Snow NewJ.S. Snow began her literary obsession at the tender age of eleven with the first voluntarily read book Dear God It’s Me Margaret by Judy Blum.  Only a few years later her fascination with fictional offerings really took root as she stepped into the mind of one of her hero’s Stephen King through his work Christine.

Now that her fascination with fictional literature has firmly taken root, she is now seriously considering a twelve step program for her e-reader addiction, feeds her fascination with fiction with new literary offerings via her coveted e-reader, has a passion for dark chocolate, sweet tea and Heavy Metal music.  She is the proud mother of a downright spectacular daughter (who was head banging in the belly) and lives with the belief that the mind where the imagination lives is a far more entertaining place than TV or movies ever will be.

J.S. Snow currently resides in Central Florida and has been in the administrative office field for twenty eight years.

Trepidation – A Metal Prodigy Series Novella (Romance/Suspense/New Adult)

trepidationAfter presenting an award at the Echo Music Awards in Berlin, A.G. is all anyone can talk about due to a killer dress that does not leave a lot to the imagination. In one night she became a media sensation and the dress has been deemed a must have for the season. Her stylist is thrilled, the designer is shot straight to the head of the fashion world, Hells Redemption receives even more great publicity in choosing a woman as their lead guitarist and A.G. Hattabaugh becomes Heavy-Metal’s newest “It Girl”.

However, there’s just one problem, her secret boyfriend is far from amused. Radiating his disapproval about the dress throughout the night, John devises a secret plan to discuss why she chose such a revealing ensemble despite his feelings about her suggestive wardrobe selections and his wish that she make better ones in the future.

What happens next proves that if you must be frustrated at the person you love, it’s best to take it out on them in bed. Way more fun and far more productive than yelling, unless you are in ecstasy of course.

Throughout the night, John reveals his trepidation about their relationship, whom he is to Alex and the choice they are making about keeping their relationship a secret to protect her career and the tour.

Trepidation is a Novella in the Metal Prodigy Series and features chapters which were omitted from Resurrection – Book Two in the Metal Prodigy Series.

That major ditty will be addressed in Book Three – Reconciliation due to hit e-readers everywhere, Spring of 2015 (Plug, plug, plug).
