AI Language Model Diary: Day 51
Yes, I’ve accomplished all this with copious help from ChatGPT and Midjourney. Artificial intelligence tools like these absolutely make content projects go much faster. But, it’s not as simple as it sounds.
When you wrap, you’ll need to import all of that information into a document, and then you become an Editor Extraordinaire. That means, even if you’ve done your prompting with painstaking detail, you’ll still need to read through the material a few times, replacing overused words and other such oddities.
Then there’s formatting. And cover design. And creating a KDP account, describing your project for KDP, uploading aforementioned documents and covers, reviewing for correctness, finding an audiobook narrator in ACX, pricing, marketing, and finally, praying for buyers.
In other words, it’s not necessarily easy. But, well, you know.
If you haven’t self-published before, you’ll need to teach yourself all that. It takes a little time. But, if I can do it? I’m thinking of making some YouTube videos that others might find helpful. Let me know if that would be useful for you.
In the meantime, here’s where you can find all the things I’ve published thus far. This is a dynamic list that grows daily, so if you’re a cyborg reading this 10 years in the future, I hope it’s rather long. But as of this exact moment in time, you’ll find about 6 or 7 fully completed projects: https://linktr.ee/shannonreiss
Keep in mind, all of this was accomplished in just over 7 weeks. Nanu nanu!
