A Small Milestone

His Robot WifeHis Robot Wife sold its 8,000th copy this week.  Not a huge number, but definitely a milestone for me and my books.  It continues to do well, and Patience is a Virtue, which has been out three and a half months is doing well also.  The latter is not selling nearly as quickly as the former did on its fourth month, but that is to be expected when one is 99 cents and the other is $2.99.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased and read these books (as well as His Robot Girlfriend, which is a free download).  I appreciate you and your support.

His Robot Wife: Patience is a Virtue – Chapter 10 Excerpt

PatiencePatience located two drink stations, equal distance from the walls along the x-axis and in the center of the room along the y-axis.  She collected two tall glasses of water and a diet soda.  Next to the drinks was a selection of condiments.  She grabbed a bottle of Tabasco, taking it with her to their assigned table.

While she waited for Mike, she observed others nearby.  As expected, the room consisted of about one half human beings and one half robots.  At the table to her right, a handsome man of African descent, about thirty years old, sat with a new model Gizmo robot.  The Gizmo was a female model, with a very shapely body and platinum blond hair.  She hated to admit it, but Gizmos had definitely improved their models recently, at least on the outside.  On the other side of her, a man about Mike’s age, but a good six inches shorter, sat with an Amonte 2.  Tall and thin, the Amonte 2 was dressed in a business suit, despite her human’s casual clothing.  And directly across from Patience were a pair of women, one human and the other a Barone model Daffodil.  The human was five foot six inches tall, with short brown hair, and the Barone was an inch taller with long strawberry blond tresses.  They both wore yellow sundresses.

“Lesbian watching, are we?” asked Mike, setting down his tray.

“I don’t believe they are lesbians,” replied Patience, looking from the two women to Mike’s tray.  “You don’t care whether they are or not.  You’re just trying to deflect my attention from your breakfast.”

Mike’s tray was filled with food: two eggs, three pieces of bacon, two sausages, three pancakes covered in syrup, two blintzes with a dollop of sour cream, hash brown potatoes, and a Danish.  Patience’s hand quickly moved to seize the sausages and two of the bacon pieces.  Then she lifted up the top pancake and removed the middle one.  She wrapped the food she had taken in a cloth napkin and set it on the corner of the table.

“That’s it?” asked Mike.  “You’re going to let me eat the rest of this?”

“Do you want me to take more?”

“Nope.”  He sat down opposite her.  “I’m just surprised.”

“You haven’t been eating well for two weeks,” said Patience.  “I want you to regain the three pounds you have lost during that time, and I have decided to let you gain two additional pounds on the cruise.”

“Really.  Two pounds.”

“It’s traditional that people gain weight on a cruise.”

“All right.”  Mike spread the sour cream across his blintz with his fork, and then took a bite.  Setting down the utensil, he salted his eggs.  “How about rounding up some hot sauce?”

Patience slid the bottle of Tabasco across the table to him.

“Thanks.”  He shook out several dozen drops onto his eggs, and then picked his fork back up and cut a piece.  “So why don’t you think those women are lesbians.”

“Body language.”

“Excuse me, are you talking about us?”

Patience watched Mike look over his shoulder, his bite of egg waiting on the end of his fork.  The brunette was standing right behind him with a hand on her hip.

“That depends.  Are you planning on slapping me?”

“I haven’t decided yet.”

“Well despite my better judgment I will answer.  Yes, we were talking about you.”

“And what were you saying?”

Mike looked her up and down.  “I was speculating that you might be a lesbian, but I can see now that I was mistaken.”

“I wondered when I planned this trip with Delia if people would think we were lesbians.”  She waved toward the Daffodil now standing behind her and to the left.  “How did you figure out that I wasn’t one?”

“Your shoes,” said Mike.  “Lesbians usually wear comfortable shoes.  Those sexy red pumps have to be killing your feet.”

His Robot Wife: Patience is a Virtue – Chapter 8 Excerpt

PatienceThe train had been moving about ten minutes when Ryan spoke again.

“Do you want to play Last Supper?”

“Is that some kind of Jesus thing?” asked Mike.  “Cause I already told you I was an atheist.”

“No, it’s not a… well… it is, but not really.  You list what twelve people you would want to invite to a dinner party.”

“Me and twelve people in one room,” mused Mike.  “That’s not The Last Supper; it’s Dante’s Inferno.”

“You don’t have to just pick people who are alive now.  You can pick anyone who has ever lived.”

“All right.  Go ahead.  Dazzle me.”

“Well,” began Ryan.  “Of course, first I would pick Jesus Christ.”

“Naturally.”

“Then George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Thomas Edison,” Ryan counted off happily on his fingers.  “Then it starts to get hard.  Ronald Reagan, um… John F. Kennedy, Neil Armstrong… um… oh, Martin Luther King Jr., Albert Einstein, um… and Paul McCartney.”

“You still need one more,” said Mike.

“No, I’m the twelfth.

“No, you need twelve plus yourself—like Jesus and the twelve apostles.”

“Oh, um, then… Ringo Starr.”

“Well at least you won’t need an interpreter,” said Mike.  “Everyone at your party speaks English, except Jesus.”

“Jesus can speak any language.”

“Of course he can.  Maybe he can do some card tricks too, because your party is going to be boring as shit.  You don’t have one single female, or married female for that matter.”

“There weren’t any women at The Last Supper.”

“Bull.  Even I know that Mary Magdelaine was at the last supper,” said Mike.  “And before you tell me that she had a minor role because all she did was wash feet, let me remind you that Jesus washed a few feet and nobody ever accuses him of having a minor role.”

“I wasn’t going to say that,” said Ryan.  “I didn’t know she was there.”  He thought for a moment.  “I do know the bible says ‘the devil can quote scripture to suit his own purpose’.”

“That’s not the bible.  It’s Shakespeare, whom incidentally would be one of my guests.  The Merchant of Venice.  And perhaps the devil has to quote scripture when the faithful can’t.”

“You know people would like you more if you didn’t act so smart and superior all the time.”

“Maybe more people would like me, but I wouldn’t be one of them.”

“Fine, you’ve got Shakespeare,” said Ryan.  “Who else would you have at your Last Supper?”

“These aren’t necessarily my favorite people in history, but I think this would be one hell of a party,” explained Mike.  “William Shakespeare.  I’d take Einstein too.  Then Julius Caesar, astronaut Gordon Cooper, Ben Franklin, Bill Clinton, Cleopatra, Mary Shelley, spy Mata Hari, Joan of Arc, Ada Lovelace, and Sacagawea.”

“I don’t know who Ada Lovelace is.  She’s not that Deep Throat girl, is she?”

“No, that was Linda Lovelace.  Ada Lovelace was an aristocrat and a genius—a little slutty, but no porn star.  She’d fit in though.”

“Okay, so you’ve got a bunch of historic party people.  I don’t know that much about Joan of Arc.  Was she a partier?”

“Not at all.  But you know at some point she’s going to go crazy and stab somebody,” Mike laughed.

“What about Sacagawea?”

“Designated driver.”

“Huh?  She can’t drive.”

“She got Lewis and Clark home safe after crossing a continent,” said Mike.  “I’m sure she could get drunk Clinton and drunk Shakespeare home safe, because you know Caesar and Ben Franklin are both showing up with booze.”

“It’s hard to believe you’re not a Christian,” said Ryan

Mike shrugged and went back to his texTee.

“How about you, Patience?” asked Ryan.  “Do you have a Last Supper?”

“Of course, Ryan.  My Last Supper would be Bender, Wall-E, R2D2, Tom Servo, Gort, Commander Data, Robbie, Cylon Number 6, Twiki, Optimus Prime, Replicant Rachael, and the T-800 Terminator.”

“That is very funny, Patience,” said Wanda.

“I don’t think that’s funny at all,” said Ryan.

“What I find funny,” said Mike, without looking up from his screen, “is that her list seems to be about an equal mix of robots that want to serve humans and robots that want to destroy all humans.”

“I don’t find that funny either.”
