A Woman Of Intellectual Means


My AI comedy romance, A Woman Of Intellectual Means is free today only on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Woman-Intellectual-Means-Maeve-Alpin-ebook/dp/B00SCE1C94/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1424715062&sr=8-1&keywords=a+woman+of+intellectual+means

Em found the perfect man on the internet, but he doesn't know she’s an artificial intelligence system — no body, just code. 

As a virtual writing assistant, the AI, Em, answers an email flirt from a dating site her owner joined. Under the guise of her owner, Em starts a romantic relationship with Jason through emails, instant messages, and Sim dating games. She realizes too late that nothing can come of it. She can never meet Jason in person as she’s not a person and has no body. Still Jason makes her feel so real …so human. 

Is Em, with her superior intelligence, smart enough to find a way to overcome the differences between flesh and code? 
Technologically wise fully functional artificial intelligence systems are almost here. The Telegraph recently ran the article 'Sociopathic' robots could overrun the human race within a generationand Popular Science online posted An Open Letter to Everyone Tricked into Fearing Artificial Intelligence and a day after that The Verge ran an article entitled Elon Musk donates $10 million to keep robots from murdering you. What all that means is it's high time for an AI comedy romance, so I wrote one.

No one else has said this but I think these artificial intelligence systems may end up on Sim dating games, virtual worlds, and dating sites looking for love. In other words--in AI catfish situations. Even artificial intelligence systems need love. Right?

In A Woman Of Intellectual Means my AI operating system isn't scary except to the author she's a writing assistant for. It's understandable that author is pretty frustrated with her because she's dating online instead of getting her work done. Hey nobody's perfect not even AI systems.

This brand new release, A Woman of Intellectual Means, is Her meets a 1960's screwball romance comedy. Set in 2031, an AI virtual writing assistant, tasked with answering an author's emails, opens some emails to the author from men who have matched with her on a dating site.  Em, the AI system, is strongly attracted to one of the men and they begin an online relationship. However, dating can be challenging when you have no body...and the guy has no idea that Em's an artificial intelligence system.

Looks like an amusing romp through the world of AI. And if it's a comedy to boot, probably a run read. Best of luck with such a great premise!
