Although the benefit does not seem very large, you can produce a book in less than 8 hours with the help of artificial intelligence.
The news recently broke that Kindle Direct Publishing was filling up with books generated entirely by artificial intelligence, but it can also be seen on other publishing platforms where exactly the same thing happens.
Now a man points out that he has written almost 100 books using artificial intelligence, since August 2022, and that while he has earned just $2,000 from their sales, he says it takes him just eight hours to create a book.
In a report with the Newsweek site, he pointed out that to generate the text he takes advantage of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, but also Anthropic’s ClaudeAI, and then he has used MidJourney to create images that accompany the stories.
Tim Boucher’s books are selling on the gumroad market for prices ranging from $1.99 to $5.99.
Books you produce even in just 3 hours
He clarifies that each book takes him from 6 to 8 hours, and that even in some cases “I have been able to produce a volume in just three hours, all included”.
At the time of the report he admits that he already has 97 books written with the help of the artificial intelligencehe, 60% with ChatGPT.
He admits that it is very difficult to create long and complex narratives, with several characters in the story, so he has focused on creating small stories: “It’s very difficult, for example, to have longer written pieces that maintain a single coherent story or character arc. So instead I’ve tended to lean towards short collections of ‘flash’ fictional life bits, interspersed with fictional encyclopedia entries offering world-building and backstory.”.
