J. earned a B.A. in American History from the University of Pittsburgh and a M.A. from Duquesne University. He is a husband, father, full-time writer, and a part-time professor at John Carroll University. J. and I first connected about our A.I. newsletters that we both publish through the Beehiiv platform. His is called the Creative AI Digest. After that, he drove down from Cleveland to our first CincyAI Meetup which I co-host with Kendra Ramirez, and is the largest A.I. meetup in the region in partnership with the University of Cincinnati’s UC Digital Futures. He’s expanded my approach on how to interact with A.I. and I couldn’t be more excited to share our fascinating and thought-provoking conversation with you.  In today's episode, J. shares how in April 2023 ChatGPT-4 changed the trajectory of his Amazon book sales and his ah-ha moment for GenAI’s impact on publishing and beyond. Discover J.'s prompt to process and innovative role-playing approaches to co-writing with AI. We also discuss the publishing industry’s landscape pre- and post-GenAI, how AI is enabling greater accessibility for writers, and the need to support all writers and stop review bombing. We discuss the potential impact of AI on the entertainment industry as we know it, the importance of teaching responsible AI use in the classroom, how creators can leverage digital books, and the need for kindness and empathy as we navigate this new creative landscape. How can you harness the power of AI to unleash your creativity? Listen in to find out!
