Whichever boat you’re in, we have good news. There’s a new writing tool and this time it’s not a fancy pencil sharpener or a pen that never runs out of ink (we don’t even think that’s possible). It’s actually a computer. Computer software to be exact. Computer machine learning software to be even more exact. Okay, enough. You get it…

Artificial intelligence software has taken the world by storm and the publishing world is being transformed in a ton of ways. The power of technology has unlocked some amazing new tools that writers around the world are tapping into.

AI New Best Friend

Your New Best Friend

AI BFF? Maybe not—but AI writing tools do have the ability to impact your life in amazing ways.

First, here’s how artificial intelligence works. AI has gotten a lot better since it was first developed. It’s quickly becoming enmeshed throughout modern society. In fact, the most popular AI tool right now, OpenAI’s ChatGPT, became the fastest growing app of all-time. (Yes, you read that right.) A lot of these tools are also free, which only increases their popularity.

ChatGPT and tools like it use a branch of AI called Natural Language Processing (NLP). This programming allows it to copy large datasets that humans program into it. The AI draws from Big Data, neural networks, statistics, and information sources across the Internet and uses a predictive model to provide people with the best answers. Sometimes the answer is helpful and other times they are funny or just plain wrong. But these tools will only get better as time goes on.

And if you’re wondering about AI taking over the world anytime soon, don’t sweat it. The AI really isn’t capable of thinking on its own or creating things from scratch. Users still have to prompt it to get answers.

Some of the other popular AI writing tools right now are Frase, Jasper and Rytr. But more are constantly being developed that offer writers all kinds of ways to level up their skills. We’ll show you how you can use AI to come up with interesting new ideas and find ways to market your Kindle eBook to make a living.

Work Smarter, Not Harder

Work Smarter, Not Harder

What if you could produce two books in the time it used to take to write just one? What if you could come up with plot points faster? Better character names? Crazier names for your fictional cities on the planet your protagonist is trying to save?

With AI, you can!

Besides helping write the words, an AI writing tool offers grammar and plagiarism checkers. The editing tools can help you streamline your writing, find awkward phrasing and suggest better word choice. And AI dictionaries and thesaurus tools can help you elevate your vocab game to new heights. AI tools can also help you come up with new ideas and fresh perspectives to spice up your writing process.

For instance, maybe you’re trying to come up with your next ebook for Amazon Kindle publishing. Maybe you’re passionate about educating people on the latest digital marketing trends and you want to write on that subject. You could use an AI-powered tool to analyze popular content related to digital marketing and identify gaps in the publishing market. After putting in the right keywords, the computer could generate a list of topics that are most popular in the industry right now, as well as related topics that haven't been covered by other authors.

The AI might suggest a book on "The Top 10 Emerging Digital Marketing Trends in 2023" or "How to Optimize Your Social Media Strategy for Better Engagement." By leveraging these AI-powered tools, you can streamline your research process and generate fresh and relevant ideas that can resonate with your target audience.

8 Ways AI Can Help Your Writing

Let’s look at six ways you can use AI to write your first or next Amazon Kindle eBook.

  1. Generate an outline
    AI-powered tools can help you create an outline for your Kindle ebook. You can put in your topic, subtopics and other information, and the tool will generate a comprehensive outline that you can use as a starting point for your writing.
  2. Writing
    Once you have your outline, you can even use AI to help with what is often the best and hardest part of the writing process—the actual writing! AI can help generate the actual content of your book and can produce high-quality, coherent text that reads like it was written by a human.
  3. Better overall consistency
    AI authorship can give your book a better consistency in the writing style and tone. Now you don’t have to struggle so much to maintain a consistent voice throughout the chapters. The AI can help smooth those spots out and give it a clear voice.
  4. Finding new ideas
    We’ve all been stuck. We just can’t seem to come up with any new ideas. AI can help with this. It can help you break through writer’s block and find new and unique angles for your content. With AI, you now have a computer partner that can help brainstorm ideas. Just put in a few prompts and see what it gives you. AI allows you to tap into an infinite pool of information to create something new.
  5. Title ideas and book descriptions
    AI writing tools can also help you come up with interesting and catchy title ideas. Just ask it to give you 10 title ideas for whatever your book is about and see what it comes up with. Most of the ideas might not be great, but there will probably be one or two that are helpful or spark some more ideas. AI can also help you write the book description.
  6. Coming up with pen names
    If you’re wanting to write under an anonymous pen name, AI is great at giving you ideas for names. Just ask it for 10 male/female pen names for a book about… fill in the blank. Or you can simply ask it for a list of cool pen names and it will spit out a bunch of ideas. You can mix and match the first and last names it gives you, too, for even more options.
  7. Polishing
    While using AI-powered book writing tools can help you create high-quality content faster than ever before, that doesn’t mean it will be perfect. You’ll still need to proofread it and edit it to make sure your book is the best it can be. Enter AI again. Software can help catch errors and fix any inaccuracies that you missed in the process.
  8. Formatting and Design
    Once you feel good about the finished manuscript, you can use AI-powered tools like Canva or Adobe Spark to design and format your book. These tools have built-in templates and algorithms that can help you create a professional-looking book cover and interior layout, without needing to have any design skills. You can also hire experts on freelancing sites like Upwork or Fiverr to do the layout and cover design.

Finally, once your eBook is complete, you can publish it on Amazon Kindle using their self-publishing platform.

Harnessing the power of AI, you can now write and publish a high-quality Kindle book with minimal human intervention, allowing you to focus on marketing and promoting your book to reach a wider audience.

Lean In

The publishing industry in the last few years has gone through some dramatic changes. The Internet is not just good for endless cat videos, but also brought about the power of eBooks and Amazon self-publishing platforms. No longer do you have to wait to work with traditional publishing houses or to beg for a publishing deal. The power is in your hands. The Internet burst the dam and now anyone with a manuscript and a dream can become a published author.

So instead of running for the hills when you hear about the dreaded writing apocalypse that AI is supposedly bringing, or being afraid of losing your job—lean into this new technology and use it to give you the edge you’ve been looking for. Give these tools a try. You might be surprised how much you end up relying on them and how much better your work becomes.

AI can give you a creative idea for your next novel. It can help you produce high-quality content faster than ever before.
