UNITED STATES: Blocks of texts from simple prompts could be generated with the help of the ChatGPT. A 30-page illustrated children’s e-book was created by Brett Schickler in merely a few hours, offering it for sale in January through Aamzon.com Inc’s self-publishing unit.

“The Wise Little Squirrel: A Tale of Saving and Investing” is available in the Amazon Kindle store for $2.99n- $ 9.99 for a printed version that had cost Schickler less than $100. This would motivate him more to compose other books of this sort.

He said, “I could see people making a whole career out of this, where prompts could be used to write a story about a dad teaching his son about financial literacy.”

Schickler had been testing the pros and cons of ChatGPT, which debuted in November and sent shock waves through Silicon Valley and beyond. Amazon’s Kindle store has given homage to over 200 e-books as of mid-February.

The company listed OpenAI’s chatbot as an author or co-author, for “How to Write and Create Content Using ChatGPT”, “The Power of Homework” and a poetry collection “Echoes of the Universe”. There has been a sub-genre on Amazon books that is entirely written by ChatGPT. 

Some of the biggest technology films have already been ruffled by the software’s emergence pushing Alphabet INC and Microsoft Corp to introduce new features in Google and Bing incorporating AI. After demonstrating integration with ChatGPT, Microsoft received fawning coverage in February over its Bing search engine.

Mary Rasenberger, executive director of the writer’s group, the Author’s Guild, said, “We should be very concerned about this since a lot of authors will lose their jobs due to the market flood of these books.”

“If authors and platforms aren’t transparent about how these books are produced, the result will be a large number of poor-quality books,” Rasenberger concluded.

However, not many are smitten by the software. Mark Dawson selling million copies of books through Kindle direct publishing, said, “How books are suggested to other readers depends in part on their merit. A book will fall to the bottom rapidly if it receives negative reviews for having boring writing.”
