[Won a Fic Award for Best Science Fiction Novel] Corporations would never replace humans with machines, would they? The surreal drudgery of working in a retail environment is interrupted when robotic interfaces are installed to work alongside Ty and his co-workers. Any protest of the machines will prompt Prominents to place him in a re-education church, and that's if he's lucky.
  Although he dislikes tech, he's obsessed with the idea of a printing a live composite. In a botched job, he ends up printing a female version of himself.

  Thanks to his clone, Samantha (or Sam as she insists being called), Ty and his family are in danger of being jailed by Prominent forces. A dangerous life of hiding in plain sight is nearly impossible to pull off, especially when Sam strays from simple Prominent edicts by dating a woman. 
  Ty's reality begins to unravel and he is forced to new truths, all while coming to terms with the great mechanization of the workforce going on around him.

Hmmm.... it appears you have a large following willing to offer suggestions and opinions on this book.
                              I'll just say good start, I'm enjoying your talent, here!
Definitely hooked!  I like Ty and the universe feels authentic to me.  I don't like Jennifer a bit but I'm interested in learning more about her.  Helia promises to be a hoot - a scene stealer for sure!  And I have a soft spot for the family genius, so I hope Damon gets some spotlight too!

Hahaha maybe he thought it would make him aerodynamic and he could fly through the door without his clothes weighing him down. :))
