AI can be fun. Trust me.

Or not. I don’t care either way. But, AI is getting pretty good and it’s fun to play with.
After working (yes, writing) for a few hours this morning I decided I’d go see how ChatGPT was doing. It gets better all the time.
Wanna see the results?

Yeah, you’re going to regardless of whatever your head just did.

“Write a two-paragraph bio for crime thriller author Cat Connor”

ChatGPT came up with this:

Cat Connor is a New Zealand-born crime thriller author, known for her captivating and suspenseful novels that keep readers on the edge of their seats. With a passion for storytelling, Cat has published multiple successful books in her “Byte” series, featuring the protagonist FBI Special Agent Ellie Conway. Her writing style is characterized by fast-paced action, intricate plot twists, and a strong attention to detail that brings her characters to life. Cat’s novels have gained a dedicated following, earning critical acclaim and accolades from fans and industry professionals alike.

Beyond her work as a writer, Cat is also a talented speaker and educator. She has presented at numerous conferences and workshops on the craft of writing, sharing her expertise on topics such as character development, plot structure, and world-building. In addition, Cat is an active member of several writing organizations, including the International Thriller Writers and Sisters in Crime. With her passion for storytelling and dedication to her craft, Cat Connor is an author to watch in the world of crime fiction.

(And to make that accurate I’d change the conference thing and the Sisters In Crime thing, but how cool is that?)

So, I played some more.
The question this time: “Write a 2 paragraph blurb about Crime thriller author Cat Connor and her new series”

Cat Connor is a renowned author of crime thrillers and has recently launched her new series, the “Byte Series”. This gripping series revolves around the protagonist, Ellie Conway, an FBI agent who has a special talent for profiling and solving intricate cyber crimes. The first book in the series, “Killerbyte”, sets the stage for the rest of the series as Ellie is assigned to a complex case involving a serial killer who uses social media to lure in his victims. The subsequent books in the series continue to showcase Ellie’s intellect, tenacity, and strength as she works to take down cyber criminals and other dangerous perpetrators.

Cat Connor’s writing style is characterized by fast-paced action, suspenseful twists and turns, and a gritty realism that captures the essence of the crime thriller genre. Her storytelling abilities have earned her critical acclaim, with readers and reviewers alike praising her for her ability to keep them on the edge of their seats. With the “Byte Series”, Cat Connor has once again proven herself to be a master of the genre, delivering thrilling and captivating stories that keep readers hooked from beginning to end. If you’re a fan of crime thrillers, the “Byte Series” is not to be missed.

The only inaccuracies are that the Byte Series is new and that the series is predominately cybercrime. It’s serial crime mostly. Ellie isn’t assigned to the serial case in Killerbyte she’s smack dab in the middle of it.
The new series is called the Veronica Tracey Spy/PI series. 🙂
With a few tweaks though, it’s a usable blurb.
When I first played with ChatGPT a couple of weeks back it was making up absolute nonsense.

What does ChatGPT have to say about [Nothing happens here] and the Veronica Tracey Spy/PI series?
Funny you should ask … because I asked: “Write a 2-paragraph blurb about Cat Connor’s Veronica Tracey Spy/PI series first book [Nothing happens here]”

Cat Connor’s Veronica Tracey Spy/PI series first book, “Nothing Happens Here”, is a gripping and suspenseful mystery that introduces readers to the strong and independent protagonist, Veronica Tracey. Set in a small town in New Zealand, the story follows Veronica as she investigates a seemingly ordinary case of a missing gnome. However, as she delves deeper into the case, she realizes that there is more to it than meets the eye, and the small town she thought she knew so well is hiding some dark and dangerous secrets.

Cat Connor’s expert writing and well-crafted plot keep readers hooked from the first page to the last, as the tension builds and the mystery deepens. Veronica Tracey is a complex and multi-dimensional character, with a troubled past and a fierce determination to uncover the truth, no matter what it takes. With its strong sense of place, vivid characters, and intriguing plot, “Nothing Happens Here” is a must-read for fans of the crime thriller genre. If you’re looking for a compelling and entertaining mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end, look no further than the first book in the Veronica Tracey Spy/PI series by Cat Connor.

That’s not too bad.
And yes I did carry on asking about the next two books in the series. 🙂 And yes, I did have fun.
AI is getting good.
Now if it could just come up with a synopsis so I don’t have to … hahaha.
