Alpha Bots

All the women in New Stepford are AI…

…even a corrupt cop named Maggie.

Can anyone stop the uprising?

In the near future, artificial intelligence will be in every home. That’s right. You can have a charming womanoid do all your cooking and cleaning for you. Just think. No more chores! She can be your wife, a nanny to your kids, or just the housekeeper. She will be whatever you want her to be. It’s all up to you.

Just set your user preferences.

But first, this amazing technology has to pass alpha testing.

One robot woman, Cookie Rifkin, keeps failing. She needs to figure out how to control her anxiety, but her husband set his preferences too low for her to learn. He just wants a pleasure robot, but she keeps fighting her programming.

One day, a tall, dark, and handsome stranger crashes her ladies-only book club. He jailbreaks Cookie and her womanoid friends, but then all the Stepford wives start to malfunction. Soon Cookie meets a brazen policewoman who shamelessly flirts with her at the grocery store. Officer Maggie seems to have the answer to all her problems—breaking her submission program by joining a brutal fight club. But when Cookie finally throws the first punch, she winds up igniting a provocative rivalry that could wind up killing all the men.

Will Cookie ever fulfill her potential?

Or will her story end in another fatal error?

What Readers Are Saying About Alpha Bots:

“Imagine a next-gen Stepford Wives as written by Chuck Palahniuk. Mix in a dash of Breaking Bad and a pinch of Westworld—and you’ve got the perfect recipe for Alpha Bots.”

“Sexy robots, kicking ass!”

“A bold, new science fantasy that features a love-hate relationship between two android women. Alpha Bots is HOT!”

“How would an AI wife, programmed to love and please her human husband, cope with constant failure? Maybe he doesn’t love her back, or maybe he’s downright cruel and abusive. Either way, she can’t fulfill her purpose, so she’s stuck in a negative feedback loop. In human terms, that’s constant emotional pain.”

“A sexy, fast-paced, cyber twister.”
