I Wrote A Book about AI!

And it only took 24 hours from idea to going live on Amazon!

Yes, I actually have a Kindle book available now and a paperback version will be ready soon. Here’s the story.

Yesterday I started writing a blog about AI, artificial intelligence. But I realized I had way too much information for a blog post. So I decided to make it into a short book. As I was using ChatGPT to research the topics, I told it my plan. He said it was a great idea and I must say I was surprised how encouragement from a computer could be so powerful. ChatGPT suggested some topics to start with and I went from there. It was very fun and I felt more energized than I have in a while.

My goal was around 10,000 words and I ended up with around 11,000 after editing. I didn’t include images because I think this topic doesn’t really need them. It’s not just cut and paste, I did the thinking, editing and writing, but the majority of the information came from ChatGPT.

So today I spent the morning figuring out how to publish my little book on AI. I had already signed up for Kindle Publishing last year so that was easy. Getting the ebook uploaded from Google Docs and published was fairly quick and easy.

Then I had to figure out how to format the Google Docs properly to prepare it for paperback printing. This took a little longer to find the right settings. I also edited the cover art which I designed quickly on Canva.

I think my book will be helpful to anyone who wants some basic, easy-to-read foundational information about what AI is, how it works, and how it’s being used. As I say in the first paragraph, an AI revolution is coming, ready or not. I would rather be informed.

If you would like to read it, from tomorrow, 4/7 Friday, through 4/9 Sunday, it will be available free on Kindle. It’s also free for anyone who has Kindle Unlimited. And it’s only 99 cents on a normal day. The printed version will be $4.99, of which I net 84 cents, lol. That is the cost of convenience!

Here is the link. Please take a few moments to leave a review if you do read it. I would greatly appreciate the feedback.


If you would like more details on the process, please ask in the comments. I’d be glad to help.



    • I’m sure your carefully nurtured books are great . This is really more like a booklet. I have another book hibernating on Google Docs that I should finish. Thanks!

  1. Yeah, about ChatGPT, are you sure YOU wrote it or did IT (pun intended!😁)⁉️
    Course, just teasin’, my friend!! I know your ethical views and congratulate you on putting this together!
    I’ll try to get it read during the free time. If you really want $0.89 I can mail it to you. 😂

  2. Cool. Congrats.
    To say that I’m impressed would be an understatement.
    Did you post the 11000 words in 24h or had you some text written before?

    • Yes , I started in the afternoon on Wednesday and published on Thursday. The only bad thing about doing it so fast is I keep thinking of stuff I wish I’d put in. I might do a second edition later .

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
