gpt-author is an open-source AI tool that leverages GPT-4, Stable Diffusion, and Anthropic to generate entire fantasy novels with a short prompt automatically.
This amazing AI allows anyone to become an AI-assisted author. With typing a text prompt describing the novel’s genre, themes, etc., it will create an engaging multi-chapter fantasy story in minutes. gpt-author democratizes novel writing, letting anyone generate a book for just a few dollars.
How gpt-author works
The AI generates potential plots, selects the most compelling one, refines it, and extracts a title. It then builds a complete chapter-by-chapter storyline, writes each chapter individually following the plot, and creates cover art. Finally, it compiles everything into an EPUB e-book file, immediately compatible with e-book readers. No further conversion required.
How to use it
1. For the latest experience, use Google Colab or a local Jupyter notebook (preferably gpt_author_v2.ipynb).
2. On Google Colab, open the notebook, input your API keys, and run the cells sequentially.
3. For local Jupyter notebook users, make sure you’ve installed the required dependencies:
pip install openai ebooklib requests
4. Customize the prompt and specify the number of chapters in the notebook’s last cell:
prompt = "Your prompt here" num_chapters = 15 writing_style = "Describe writing style here" novel, title, chapters, chapter_titles = write_fantasy_novel(prompt, num_chapters, writing_style)
5. Here are several compelling fantasy novels created using gpt-author. You can view and download the EPUB files from the provided links and open them in e-reading apps to get a firsthand look at the quality of gpt-author’s automated novel generation.
