Novel update

The overweight teenage girl protagonist’s house was blown up by whoever is after her.

She flees with her “bad boy” robot bodyguard, a self-aware self-driving car, and a sexbot with a heart of gold. They head to a mysterious address in Staten Island found in an encrypted message on the dark web, her only clue.

I couldn’t resist the satire of naming the sexbot Cherry 2000. I suspect that only a tiny percent of readers will get it.

    • When Layla “kicked ass” in the subway, I suspected the two guys were guidos and that Leon was living vicariously through a teenage girl. haha

  2. Cherry 2000 is a guilty pleasure sort of movie. When I was figuring out which movies I had on VHS that I wanted to replace with a DVD, Cherry 2000 made the cut.

    I like the description of your story…Rudy Rucker would approve!

  4. “Cherry 2000”

    Is that one with the redhead who did all those 80s teen movies? Molly Ringwald.

  5. Making him a robot is a mistake.
    Robots speak to guys, who like things, Not to girls.
    Make him a vampire body guard, and you are golden.
