robotics for writers

Artificial intelligence and science fiction have been entwined since the former existed, so is it any surprise that the first book I wanted to write when I got my hands on tools like ChatGPT and Bing Chat was about how to supercharge your speculative fiction writing process with AI?

Robotics for Writers is a cautious, practical book written from my perspective as a ten-year tech industry designer of conversational interfaces and as a nearly thirty-year veteran of the written word. Turning a ruthless eye on what large language models are, what they cost, and how to both use and avoid them, I lay out 34 ways that you can tap into the power of these tools… but only when you need to.

If you’re a fiction writer looking to gain a quick and applicable understanding of large language models like ChatGPT, and how they can apply (and how they don’t!) to your craft and process, Robotics for Writers will bring you up to speed and help you make the decision about whether or not to incorporate these tools.

About author August Niehaus

August Niehaus grew up on Star Wars, The Lion King, Redwall, and other fantastical tales of unlikely heroes, which influence what she writes today and the career she’s chosen. After majoring in journalism and minoring in psychology at Seattle Pacific University, August has worked on conversational interfaces in the technology industry for a decade now, in addition to self-publishing two novels (“Daugment” and “Gods of Atlantis: Boiling Point”) and three other non-fiction titles (“Promptly”, “Why Aren’t You Cooking?”, and “Short Story Boot Camp”).

August lives on a small farm in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, husky dog, and a herd of goats (plus a sheep named Betty White). When not writing, you can find August in the garden, in the kitchen, in the music studio, or trying to get the animals to talk back.
