Robot Rebellion in the Future Wild West


After twenty-two-year-old rocket racer Raimundo Reyes breaks his three-hour 'round the moon record in a pre-competition heat, he's psyched to win the 2176 Spaceport West 10th Annual Lunar Flash Race in his personally engineered craft. But a dodgy multi-trillionaire entrepreneur dominating the former USA's Sector III, plus the gravitational pull of cosmic love with Starbright, a dazzling human-robot hybrid, re-launch Rai's star-crossed destiny.

Quirky speculative fiction with a romantic twist.

We enjoy discovering the extraordinary in ordinary daily life!

Miss Tootie, our editorial assistant, regrets that she is not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time. However, she's pleased to announce that authors Joe DiBuduo and Kate Robinson are hard at work on the second edition of a New Adult connected scifi / quirky story collection, to be released in 2021 as a Tootie-Do Press Original!

We love to receive honest reviews at online book emporiums, so please take an extra moment to write an honest review. Indie authors and small presses depend upon reviews to survive and thrive!


We grieve with the world in this age of Covid 19 and we engage with you in the transformation that lies ahead. We can't think of a better way to socially distance and while away some hours than by immersing ourselves in compelling tales.

Publishing a book is like stuffing a note into a bottle and hurling it into the sea. Some bottles drown, some come safe to land, where the notes are read and then possibly cherished, or else misinterpreted, or else understood all too well by those who hate the message. You never know who your readers might be.
