  1. Got nook for xmas. Read robot girlfriend and wife. Really fine job. Loved both real page burners. Read them back to back. Reminded me of Isaac Asimov and the rest of the robots. Hope you’ll do more. Haven’t been able to read sci fi for years other than Cory doctrow. Too much vampire and pixie dust. Like the new emphasis on bots and ware , which is turning out to be the future. Thanks and keep up the good work. Rem

  2. Thanks very much for your kind words and for stopping by. I am glad that you enjoyed the books. “His Robot Wife: Patience is a Virtue” will be out soon. I hope you enjoy your nook as much as I do mine.

  3. Inwould just like to say that the book series His Robot Girlfriend is the best series I have ever read. It makes me feel like I am actually there every time I read it. I would also like to ask if you would give me an exact release date for the 3rd book. I am very excited! Thank you!

    • Thanks for your kind words and your support. I’m glad you enjoyed the books. I wish I could give you an exact date for book 3, but I don’t know it yet. As soon as I do, I will post it here. 🙂

      • Thanks for replying! I was afraid you werent gonna reply with how busy you are! If you get an exact date let me know 😉

  4. I loved His Robot Girlfriend. Just reading the improvements of his life with Patience around made me feel like my life was better. It drew me in and I found myself almost living in that world. I found the connections between human/robot relationships and the current struggle for gay/lesbian marriage equality insightful and thought provoking. I loved the detailed descriptions of Patience’s clothes. Everything came together and brought me into that world. I have never before read a book and then immediately ( I’m writing this literally 5 minutes after finishing it) wanted to tell the author how much I loved it. I cannot currently get the sequel but I will as soon as I am able. Keep it up.

    P.s. as a Star Trek fanatic, I love seeing that in your future Trek lives on.

    • Thanks for writing. I am glad that you enjoyed the book. I used to get quite a bit of feedback (usually negative) about the gay/lesbian commentary in the book. I was trying to be a subtle and not hit people over the head with it, but I wanted my book to be a little more than a male robot/girl fantasy, so I stuck in a little social commentary where I could.

      There has to be a fair amount of clothing description in the book, because one big part of the whole robot-human relationship (as Mike mentions in the story) is the Barbie-doll-esque aspect of living with an anatomically-female robot. Most people find this to be their least favorite part. But, you should have seen the original. I remember my uncle read it, and when I asked how he liked it, he said, “lot of clothes in there.” I cut a crap-load of clothing description, and the story is definitely better for it.

      Star Trek is near and dear to my heart. I’ve loved that show since my days in junior high. I’ve only been to two Star Trek conventions, the second with my kids, where my son got to ask a question of Walter Koenig (Chekov) and both kids had their picture taken with Robert Picardo (the Holographic Doctor). I had written the draft with Patience and Mike visiting the Star Trek Experience at the Hilton, which I had taken my family to, but as I was revising the story, the Hilton shut it down. In retaliation, I wrote into the story that the Las Vegas Hilton wasn’t around anymore.

      Thanks again for writing, and watch this space for more info about the new book.

  5. Hi Wesley,

    I bought myself Kobo reader almost 1,5 year ago and that’s where I have discovered your books. First I read was His Robot Wife which was also one of the first ebooks I have purchased. I must say it were well spent money and I have really enjoyed the book. Much later I have found out there is also His Robot Girlfriend which was also great reading. I am looking forwards to read the next part, so I hope you finish it soon 😀

    After meeting Patience and Mike I looked up more of your work and eventually bought and read Princess of Amathar. Great book which I have really liked and enjoyed a lot and I wouldn’t mind reading more about Alex and Vena.

    Few days ago I was again reading some parts of the Amathar book and that’s how I have found your old blog and eventually this new one. As I have liked what I have read so far I thought I should stop by and let you know that you have another fan. Fan, whom you may find interesting by being from small middle European country of Slovakia 🙂

    Btw, Buxton and Senta series are definitely on my to-read list and I hope I will have enough free time soon to start reading them.

    Keep up the good work and all the best with further writing.

    Regards,
    Peter

    • Hi,
      Thanks for stopping by and of course, thanks for reading. I am glad that you enjoyed His Robot Girlfriend, His Robot Wife, and Princess of Amathar. It is very cool to hear from someone so far away– We’re not quite on the complete opposite sides of the world, but getting close.
      Thanks for writing,
      Wes Allison

  6. Hi Wesley have read all the robot series books,l thought they were brilliant and hope there will be more to follow. How is 82 Eridani coming along, hope to be able to read it soon. I hope you find more time to write as it sounds like you are a very busy person. Best wishes Edd Lees

    • Thanks so much. I’m glad you enjoyed the books. There is definitely more His Robot Wife on the way. I am anxious to get back to 82 Eridani. I’m well into the first book, but have had so much else going on that I haven’t been able to give it the time it deserves. Hopefully soon. Thanks again and good luck.

  7. Hello sir! So I had to reinstall iBooks on my phone today and when I did, it had inexplicably shuffled my book collection and placed My Robot Wife at the top. I wondered if you had anything new out so I searched and found His Robot Wife: Patience is a Virtue! My iphone is so smart! Anyhow, bought it and read it today. I really enjoy your Patience and Mike stories and will definitely be reading everything else you put out there. Thanks very much for writing your stories! I’m not from somewhere fancy like Slovakia, but I hope you find it interesting to know you’ve got a fan here in Las Vegas as well. Have a great day!

  8. Hi Wesley

    Any news on the Robot Wife series front ? I have read all three books and I am really enjoying the series and relationship between Patience and Mike.

    I have purchased several other books from you as a result of the Robot Wife series and hope you keep up the good work.

    Regards,

    Nick

  9. I have absolutely devoured the His Robot Wife series, reading each book multiple times. This book quenches my thirst for sci-fi, romance, and sociology like no other series has – and I’ve read my fair share of them. The pace and story is just perfect for me. I wish you the greatest success!

    As a lover of romance and sci-fi, I have been wanting to write a novel about a love story between a female and a male robot. Flipping the perspective quite a bit. I’m thinking about do it as part of NaNoWriMo. Thank you for your inspiration!

    • Thank you very much. I really try to make my robot stories deeper than the obvious male fantasy, so it feels really good when somebody gets the social commentary. I’m still surprised at how many women tell me they enjoy the stories. Good luck with your writing. I have thought about taking part in NaNoWriMo, but I don’t know if I could write that fast.

  10. Page 65 of “His Robot Girlfriend” contains the error “…Mike was served lunch of soup and…” instead of “Mike was served A lunch of soup.”

      • Haha, it’s quite alright. Well worth a few minor errors to read this terrific story. But there is another: page 210 says “Mike asked as felt his…” instead of “Mike asked as he felt his.”

      • His Robot Wife page 9: “Finally he stopped in from…” Instead of “Finally he stopped in front.”

      • His Robot Wife page 10: “as perfect as she had they day” instead of “as perfect as she had the day.”

      • In page 19 of His Robot Wife Paience recites the 3 rules of robotics which include not harming a human being. But in Chapter 3 of His Robot Girlfriend Patience, though with clear protective intentions, assaults the men attacking Mike. Maybe there’s something I missed, but I would definitely like your take on this section. Thanks.

      • His Robot Wife page 29 refers to something called an andTee. I believe this is probably supposed to be something else.

    • Thanks for all your feedback Wesley. The andTee is correct. It is a product that hasn’t been invented yet and so I can’t describe it to you. As for Patience breaking the three laws of robotics, she considers them more suggestions than rules in the strictest sense.

    • I don’t know any Mr. Korlann, but I’m glad to meet you. I usually find character names on the Internet. Sometimes I look for historical people who have something in common with the character I’m creating, and use their first or last names mixed with the names of others found in a similar way. Sometimes I read an article or story and find the author’s name interesting enough that I use part of it. It’s been so long ago that I first wrote about Yuah and Zeah Korlann (about 2006) that I don’t remember where their name came from.

    • Funny and also true… sort of.

      Teachers do not use sick days for being sick– true.

      Teachers take sick days to do other things– true.

      Teachers have to pretend to be sick– not at my district. We just punch in that we need a sub on the webpage. Then, I usually tell my boss I’ll be out sick, in my normal moderately morose voice (although I usually can’t help smiling a bit when I do it).

      Plus: Most teachers don’t like being out. It’s way too much work to plan day in the detail needed for someone else to actually teach it. It’s just easier to go in. We get fifteen sick days a year that add up if you don’t use them. I currently have 165. Plus, if you take less than four sick days, you get two free personal days the next year.

      The Math: If you take 0 sick days, you get 2 personal days= 2 days off.
      If you take 1 sick day, you get two personal days= 3 days off.
      If you take 2 sick days, you get 2 personal days= 4 days off.
      If you take 3 sick days, you get 2 personal days= 5 days off.
      If you take 4 sick days, you get no personal days=4 days off.

      Sweet Spot!!!! Three sick days!!!!

      Now the bad news: The days of plugging in a video for a whole class, are long over. Video clips of about 10 minutes are okay if they are integral to the lesson. And if you aren’t actively paying attention, your classroom will be on fire by 8:45AM.

  11. How’s it going Wesley,

    I’m a fellow author whose first novel is about to launch on June 23rd. As I’m sure you know, getting reviews is pivotal to a book’s success and difficult for newer authors to gain.

    I thought we could help each other out on this front; I’d love for you to send me a copy of your book in exchange for a copy of mine. Once we both have had time to read over them, we could trade some short reviews and/or ratings on Goodreads and/or Amazon.

    If you are intrigued by this, just let me know and I can send you an ARC electronically within the week.

    • Many people are very excited. They had a whole evening devoted to it on the local news. Of course there is even more excitement regarding the possibility of the Raiders coming. I will admit, I’m one of the people who doesn’t care. Spectator sports are not my thing.

  12. Hi Wes!
    Just finished “His Robot Girlfriend” and wanted to take a moment to say how much I enjoyed it and that I am looking forward to the rest of the series. I am an avid sci-fi reader and this series is, to me, quite a refreshing and novel concept. I especially enjoyed the pace as well as the detail that you put in of the little everyday things that Mike does during his days. Well written, good pace, novel storyline. It’s a 9 out of 10 for me!
    Thanks again and I look forward to reading some of your other books after the Robot series.

    Regards,
    Jim
