His Robot Wife

The long-awaited sequel to His Robot Girlfriend is now available at Smashwords.



Five years ago, Mike Smith was an unhappy man living all alone. Then he purchased a Daffodil. Far more than regular robots, his Daffodil Patience, changed his life in ways that he had never thought possible. Now it is the year 2037, and Mike and Patience have been married for five years. Retired and enjoying life, Mike thought that all his troubles were behind him, but it seems as though they are creeping up again. California Proposition 22 proposes to define a person as a biological entity, thereby annulling marriages, like Mike’s and Patience’s, performed in other states. Battle lines have been drawn, at least as far as the proponents of the bill are concerned. Now Mike must muster his own support to defeat the measure. But there is more going on than just politics. Daffodil, the robot maker, is in the news again. Hardware issues are leaving robots across the globe unable to function. Is it only an antenna issue? Now Patience herself is behaving oddly. Is there something really wrong with her, or does she just need a software upgrade?

You can find it now at Smaswords for 99 cents. Find it here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/42192

Find it in the Kindle Store for 99 cents here. http://www.amazon.com/His-Robot-Wife-ebook/dp/B004NNVIC4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=books&qid=129 7870484&sr=8-1

The first review is in, and it's five stars.

Review by: Charles Brentner on Feb. 15, 2011 :
This is a very good sequel to "His Robot Girlfriend." Set several years after the first book it shows yet another series of events in the lives of Mike and Patience. A few minor things are left unresolved, but that doesn't really bother as it may be that they will be explained in a future book. Only Mr. Allison knows for sure.

Thanks Charles.

His Robot Wife is selling well in the Kindle store (and the UK store is catching up too). Thanks to all who have purchased it so far.

As for those waiting for it at BN or iBooks, it's still awaiting approval for the Smashwords Premium Catalog before it ships to any other outlets. Apparently they are quite backed up. I'll let you know when it shows up.

8 PM: Woohoo! It's approved!

You're quite welcome Wes. I do hope you will continue to write about Mike and Patience as well as the fictional world that they live in.
