Growing Up With Go-bots.

Go-bots, aka "Transformers for poor kids."
Collectors Weekly, a website devoted to collectibles of all varieties (including awesome toy robots) is running a featured interview with Yours Truly. The interview is really long and I ramble quite a bit about growing up with Go-bots and why I loved writing A BOY AND HIS BOT. Reading it over now, I'm realizing this interview offers quite a peek into my psyche. So that's how I ended up being a nerdy robot-loving guy!

A Boy and His Bot Review Roundup!

It's been about a month since A BOY AND HIS BOT hit bookshelves, and it seems like a good time to take a look around and see what the reviewers are saying. Thankfully, it's a lot of nice things. Without further ado:

"With a goofy sense of humor and plenty of action, Wilson presents a coming-of-age journey with shades of Alice in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."
Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"...the climax brings on plenty of large-scale destruction, and fans of underworld odysseys will relish the wink-wink satire."
Kirkus Reviews

"A BOY AND HIS BOT is a winning combination of suspense and fun about a boy who lands in a mechanical Wonderland of robots that would awe even Alice. The perfect mix of reality and fantasy."
Curled Up With a Good Kid's Book Blog

"This book is a great adventure for boys and if you have a reluctant reader this would be a good book for him."

"...absolutely one of the better sci-fi books for this age group that does really need them. Worth your time."
The Artolater Blog

Finally, the book has a 4.67 out of 5 stars on Goodreads
