This short story looks at todays society and their all consuming need to be a part of the online social media but fast forwards to the year and speculates just how consuming this way of life could potentially become. This story looks at the invention of what is called an "AutoMate" which is defined as a digital avatar of yourself that streamlines the things you did, sifts out the internet chatter you don't need and brings all of your data into one place freeing you up to live your life. And not too far behind reality I'm willing to bet.

For instance Amy, the character of the story, her mother passed away two years ago but opted to continue her presence out in the internet social construct. It is not as strange as you would think since I just heard a couple weeks ago on the radio that Google is giving people the option as to what happens to all their data when they die I found this to be a cute story and also a scary one as we watch Amy's AutoMate take over and begin living a life Amy is not living in the real world.

Relationship Status

She finds herself to be completely lost when she can't figure out what is going on when the AutoMate is a bit haywire. She has a complete meltdown and is set to kill her internet presence when she can not get it back under her control. It is scary to think someone can become so one with their presence online and completely disconnect from the real world. This future world has lost the ability to communicate and there are even laws in place that speak against speaking aloud. Granted this was sooo short it really packs a punch and speaks about the world we live in. It is a double edged sword in a way our reliance on the social networks.

This story will really make you evaluate your own interactions on the web and wonder should a line be drawn and if so where? And even if its not free, you know what you will be pleasantly surprised I think!! This book is the short story of Amy, whose "auto" reports that she's in a relationship with a man she's never met. However, it's much more than that - it's also a shrewd and often amusing portrait of a future in which social networking and convenience technology have gone mad.

Relationship Status was first written for a Valentine's collection called Hearts and Arrows which I avoided because Cupid and me aren't really on the same wavelength. However, I was delighted to find that this short did not This book is the short story of Amy, whose "auto" reports that she's in a relationship with a man she's never met. However, I was delighted to find that this short did not make me want to barf once.

It was witty, discerning and at times, surprising. I meant to read half of it in the bath, but was enjoying it so much that I kept going. Now I look like a prune and it's all Wailing's fault. Whilst the plot was good, I felt that the strongest aspect was the deft social commentary.

Although this story was very short, I feel it was well worth the 77p that I paid for it. If I wasn't already a fan of David Wailing, this introduction would definintly tempt me to try his longer books such as Fake Kate or Bang: Memoirs of a Relationship Assassin.

Another crazy ride in the Auto Series! Why do I feel like this Series was written for me, and me alone? This one hit close to home, as did the others I've read. I've been getting a lot of messages from books in the last month. Books that are outside my usual genres.

If anything, this Series is giving me advice about my life, my future. Try as I might, I can't deny what I'm coming to realize. It's time to let down my guards and move forward. I love reading these stories. David Wailing is nothing Another crazy ride in the Auto Series! David Wailing is nothing but original. Makes you wonder what social networking will be like in the future. Hopefully if this is to be it, everything goes according to plan. I'd hate for things of this nature to actually happen to ppl. After not being able to read for so long, I definitely picked the right book to start off with again!

A very quick read but so much packed into it! Being a complete gadget freak, the idea of this world David Wailing created was in some way so intriguing and I'm not going to lie - quite fabulous! But it definitely got insanely creep by the end! The mere idea that technology has a mind of it's own isn't a new concept but Wailing certainly used it in such a novel way! The first few pages started of After not being able to read for so long, I definitely picked the right book to start off with again!

The first few pages started of shaky for me. David writes in a way I'm completely not used to but it soon came into it's own and I was sad to leave that world!

A must read for any Facebook addicts or ex-addicts! Oct 24, D. This story really creeped me out. I could so easily believe that in the not too distant future we would all have an Auto. I could believe that the invasiveness of an Auto would quickly become "normal", and that all those innocent seeming updates would quickly turn into a nightmare if they were assessable to someone you didn't want to see them. I've read a short by this author set in the same world in A Splendid Salmagundi and both books left me the same vagu This story really creeped me out.

I've read a short by this author set in the same world in A Splendid Salmagundi and both books left me the same vaguely unsettled feeling. This is the second book I have read in David Wailing's 'Auto' series which can be read in any order and it is a short but highly enjoyable read. The author has created an all too believable future for his series and, on one level, it is a purely entertaining piece of fiction, but on another, it is a stark warning for what happens when technology spirals out of control.

We are with the lead character all the way and feel her fear as her Auto, a digital assistant, pairs her up with a complete str This is the second book I have read in David Wailing's 'Auto' series which can be read in any order and it is a short but highly enjoyable read. We are with the lead character all the way and feel her fear as her Auto, a digital assistant, pairs her up with a complete stranger and creates an uncontrollable relationship.

It is page-turning stuff and it speaks volumes that, as a reader who does not normally seek out this genre, I am eagerly looking to read another book in the series. I thought this a very appropriate story for the current times with our increasing dependance on 'smart' phones, internet, wirelessness, social media sites such as twitter and Facebook and all other sorts of technology. It is exciting and yet terrifying to think that perhaps this will be how life works in 10 years time! Towards the end I was unsure whether we were headed for a horror or romantic style ending, thankfully it was a happy ending in my opinion, others may argue that it was in fact ho I thought this a very appropriate story for the current times with our increasing dependance on 'smart' phones, internet, wirelessness, social media sites such as twitter and Facebook and all other sorts of technology.

Towards the end I was unsure whether we were headed for a horror or romantic style ending, thankfully it was a happy ending in my opinion, others may argue that it was in fact horror I just love David Wailing's [written] attitude to relationships and have enjoyed a couple of his other short stories as well as this one. Another story about people and relationships, but this one is set in the future, and I must say that this future doesn't actually seem that far away when you think of it, the way things are heading.

With social networking and computers literally taking over our lives, why couldn't they take over our relationships as well? It's a really nicely written short story, which does make you think I'm still yet to work out whether this future is simply a humoristic take on the present, or if there isn' Another story about people and relationships, but this one is set in the future, and I must say that this future doesn't actually seem that far away when you think of it, the way things are heading.

I'm still yet to work out whether this future is simply a humoristic take on the present, or if there isn't a tiny bit of satire in this otherwise fun story Are we trying to make a point, Mister Wailing? It's a decent length for a short, definitely not flash fiction.

Even though the theme was Valentine, it could easily have been in the Halloween edition. It's about how social media could be in the near future and is very scary indeed. You could really see it happening as portrayed and hope to goodness it doesn't.

The tenseness was ramped up and I felt myself reading quicker and quicker as the story built up This is a short story that was originally published in the KUF anthology Hearts and Arrows. The tenseness was ramped up and I felt myself reading quicker and quicker as the story built up to it's climax.

Relationship Status by David Wailing is a fascinating tale about the 'what ifs' of social media going out of control. This short story kept me interested until the end. I felt my own tension amplify as the suspense and mystery built until the climax. What I liked about this story was not only the horror and frightening suspense, but also the science fiction aspect of it. It really made me think, "What if," multiple times throughout the read.

Books and stories tagged: auto

A fantastic start to the futuristic "Auto" series, and a delightful blend of humor, suspense, romance, and a dash of psychological horror, with several twists that you won't see coming. Wailing is a fine writer with talent to spare and a real gift for developing characters and worlds in a short space.

Although this is a short story, you feel like you read a full-length book--very satisfying!

Relationship Status by David Wailing

I've read the whole series so far, and highly recommend it. Short, sweet and rather creepy!

What's Your Status - Web Series - Episode 5 - August - Season Finale - Cheers!

Imagine a world where your electronic device 'manages' your life: Those social niceties such as ''happy birthday'', ''congratulations'', ''sorry to hear your bad news'' automatically update to friends and acquaintances. Now imagine that spiralling out of control, taking hold of your identity. This very clever short story, set in the future is certainly thought provoking! Following on from the first two stories of Auto 2, Update and Hotspot, here is the cover for the third story in the forthcoming novel which is called Tag.
