The title to this journal ended up becoming not just the re-title of First Steps, but what I began to realize is one of the major theme of the book series. It seems my boyhood fantasy of being a robot that helps and protects others influenced my work more than I realized. This was probably obvious to others long before. Anyway it is available on amazon with the following descriptive;
“I give myself to her to serve and protect and see existence together for however long the both of us shall live.” – AI Mansa Mandinka
“Respect the Black Woman” - Burakku
An AI, Mansa Mandinka, is created by an African-American space based nation to deter the elimination of life in the universe by cross-universe traveling forces. Under the cover of a social experiment Mansa Mandinka arranges for a population of women to travel with it. Together they go explore the multiverse as they seek to insure they never end up the last free life in existence.
I hope those interested will purchase and enjoy the setting, characters and story. I am currently re-writing books two and three to match what the re-written book one now has at the following link;www.amazon.com/dp/B00H3HHW86?r…
I thank Lia, Blu, DJ, Katie and Ruby for their inspiration and encouragement, especially you Miss Lia!
