Hi fellow booksians - I'm new here. First off, I admire all who are brave enough to put their written word out there for review. In that respect, you are ahead of me and have my admiration.

I see others posting book challenges and I have one I'd like to invite you to.

The challenge: write a short story related to the book "His Robot Girlfriend: Charity" by Wesley Allison (amazon kindle), but do it from the point of view of a **woman**

The trophy: The winner gets $300 from me to your fav. organization or yourself, your pick (hope not against the rules here...). I will also read up to 10 of your existing short stories, become a fan and try to read your new work and critique it.

2nd place: I will become your fan. I will also read up to 5 of your existing short stories and critique

3rd place: I will become your fan

Here's the thing, the book touches on a topic of interest to me, but it's so darn male-sided! I'm a guy and I of course like the guy side of things, but, damn! what a wasted opportunity!! In a not too distant future, we could have the first intimate relationships between humans and sex-robots. What will they be like? As humans find themselves replaced by robots in the workforce, how will each gender react to being replaced by a robot in the bedroom??

The book sets the stage for exploring these questions, but takes an entirely male view of the situation. What about the female view?

Your challenge is to integrate that female view.

Obviously, you must read the book and base your story (at least partly) in the book's universe: essentially, the Daffodil corporation has created the ultimate in human-like androids with artificial intelligence. You can have a conversation with these androids, they can even simulate feelings and of course sex; even hot sex.

Your story should include these topics/points:

* Describe the perfect male-android for use by a woman as her home sex-companion
* Your main character must be a woman who falls in love with her male-android.
* Describe in detail how this love is born. Make us believe it could really happen. There doesn't need to be intimacy with the Android (though it's welcome and recommended), but there must be romance.
* There must be some challenges for the woman to overcome with this of course. Describe them and make it realistic how she overcomes them (perhaps social stigma: what you can't do better than a machine? etc...).

I will be the only judge and I hope to start judging as soon as there are a few entries and (hopefully) pronounce the winner shortly after. Good luck and really looking forward to good reads from you!
