Bestselling author AB Foster’s comeback is big news in 2022. Absent for four years, she is now publishing further books and pioneering a new type of interactive digital novel.

Derek Thorpe was her biggest fan in the old days. Not any more. With the help of a private detective agency, Derek plans to expose AB Foster during the launch of her ground-breaking ieBook.

Expose her as a fraud. A copy of the original author. Her name, her characters and her writing style have all been stolen. Derek knows for a fact that this can’t be the real AB Foster.

Because he killed her, four years ago.


Copy is a 20,000 word story and is part of the Auto Series. The Auto Series is set in the year 2022 and looks at how social media will evolve in the next ten years.

Copy won the Novelette category in the Self-Published and Small Press Author Awards 2013.


“This is the fifth book in the brilliant Auto series and I have to say is probably my favourite of them all. Not only does it have the fantastic element of how technology, and particularly ebooks could be in the year 2022 it is a truly gripping tale with a whodunit feel!”

“David Wailing just seems to have the knack of taking today’s technology and imagining what it will have morphed into in 10 years’ time – his vision of how we will be reading in the near future is well worth the read, if a little mindboggling!”

“Would you trust a device to buy things for you? To organise your social calendar? If you give a machine such power, what happens when you no longer own it? I have enjoyed all the Auto stories which have been funny, thought-provoking and often a little worrying. This is the darkest of them by far and is an absolutely gripping read.”

“I don’t think I’ll ever tire of reading the auto stories. I love the possibility that one day all these gadgets may be real!”
