Episode 367: How to Write Your Next Book Using AI with Markus Heitkoetter


How can you use AI to write your next book? As we get to the tail end of a year that has been punctuated by the introduction of AI apps that assist us in our creative process, Markus Heitkoetter has turned to AI as his sparring partner to help him write his next book. 

A successful real estate investor with a few book titles already under his belt, Markus has not been afraid to gamify his writing process and hopefully save his editor some time in the long run by turning to AI for constructive, objective feedback. 

In this episode, we look at the specifics of AI software such as Claude and Elicit that are perhaps better suited for uploading big documents and checking your research as you fine-tune your own prompt engineering process. 

There’s still a creative process to be had that needn’t be as daunting as staring at a blank page trying to draw blood from a stone. 

If your next masterpiece is waiting inside you but you’re afraid to let it out, perhaps this conversation will encourage you to get the creative juices flowing as you put pen to paper and create ‘your best book yet.’

Markus Heitkoetter is the Founder of A link to some of his previous book titles (written without AI) can be found below.
