Started Writing on Medium 3 years ago… now I’ve Published 4 books in 4 Months

Where to find them, how to win awards, how to do it? Let me tell you everything about how Medium and my books changed my life (and made me more money than Medium)

Let me be fully honest: I never imagined achieving such a task in a million years. In fact, It was never on purpose.

When I began on Medium, I shared my story of being forced to work for a Gang in Asia as a performing artist. It was Medium’s community who went above and beyond and pushed me to write the entire book, how could I imagine this book selling all over Austria and Germany in the biggest bookstore, or me reading it at the Young Story Teller Awards 2023 because it made it to the top 10.

My First Book: Quantum Behaviours

This was just the tip of the iceberg. My first book “Quantum Behaviours” was, in reality, a compilation of articles I was writing here on the platform about Productivity, mixed with a personal challenge I put myself where I wanted to use ChatGPT to prove to my friends it actually couldn’t write books as people imagine these days.

It took 40 hours (one common work week) to complete it, but then I chose to improve it, adding ten more hours to the project. Now, with the book being praised by The London Reporter, I’m working on releasing the final enhanced edition before the end of the year (since I learned so much about Amazon printing due to it).

And… ChatGPT was only helpful in creating the “Sources, Studies, and Mentions” cited in the end. Since I wrote everything in one chat with it, I only asked for a compilation to close the book. When it came to text, the AI sounded too egocentric, completely inhuman, way too technical, tedious and mostly, I had to write all and simply got some small tips and ideas that could be helpful in an ocean of nonsense ChatGPT gave me.
