His Robot Wife: A Great Deal of Patience is on the way. The first draft has been finished, and I am hard at work on the first editing. When that is done (in a week or so), I will schedule it for release. It will have six to eight weeks of pre-release. This will give me time to do the final editing and proofreading. As soon as a release date is confirmed, I’ll announce it here.
Mike Smith and his robot wife Patience have overcome many difficulties together. None of the problems of the past, however, compare to a world war. As the United States, China, India, and Europe mobilize against the shadowy Anarchists, who’ve carved out a swath of Africa, the Middle East, and Russia and obliterated hundreds of millions in nuclear destruction, Daffodil continues its own plan to dominate the world. Mike and Patience find themselves in the middle of conflict at home, while Mike’s son Lucas is in the thick of the fighting abroad.
His Robot Wife: A Great Deal of Patience is the first book of a new trilogy that advances the events in four earlier books– His Robot Girlfriend, His Robot Wife, His Robot Wife: Patience is a Virtue, and His Robot Girlfriend: Charity.

I just finished editing and revising Princess of Amathar. It was the first time I’ve worked on it, or even read it, since 2012. It was quite embarrassing how many typos and errors were still in the manuscript after all this time. I’ve done more than simple proof-reading though. I’ve gone back and made a few changes for the sake of clarity. So, it qualifies as a new edition.
The new edition is available wherever fine ebooks are sold. If you’ve previously purchased Princess of Amathar, you should be able to download the new version at no charge. If you haven’t yet read this book, you can now purchase it for $2.99. But, during the month of July, you can get Princess of Amathar at Smashwords for free. Just use coupon code SW100 at checkout.
Mysteriously transported to the artificial hollow world of Ecos, Earth man Alexander Ashton finds himself in the middle of a millennium-long war between the reptilian Zoasians and the humanoid Amatharians. Adopted by the Amatharians, Ashton must conform to a society based on honor and altruism, ruled by Knights whose power comes from the curious energy forms known as “souls” which inhabit their supernaturally powerful swords, and rife with its own peculiarities and prejudices. When the Princess of Amathar, whom Ashton has longed for since first seeing her, is captured by the Zoasians, he must cross an alien world, battle monstrous creatures, and face unknown dangers to save her. Princess of Amathar is a sword-swinging novel of high adventure in the tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs. It is the story a strange world filled with alien races, aerial battleships, swords and energy weapons, amazing adventures and horrible dangers, and the man who must face them all for the love of a woman he has never met.
