Author Versus AI From author / editor Alison McBain


Author Versus AI
A new project of global proportions that is going to change the book industry forever

Critically acclaimed author and editor Alison McBain is taking on the influence of AI in the book industry by meeting the technology head-on!!!

Alison McBain is the author behind Author Versus AI. Starting on Global Book Day on April 23, 2024, she is writing a book a week for 52 weeks. Her mission is to show that one author can take on AI and create novels almost as fast but much, much better than AI programs. She will answer the question now being posed by creators everywhere: Will AI replace me?

The answer is an emphatic NO.

Artificial intelligence (AI), in its broadest sense, is a field of research in computer science that develops and studies methods and software that enable machines to perceive their environment and use learning to maximize their chances of achieving defined goals. Currently, there are a number of programs using AI software to augment or replace human creativity.

**Alison McBain’s mission is to prove that writing can be done quickly, efficiently, and better with human instinct, emotion, and passion**


Alison McBain’s human-created novels are the recipients of over 13 awards, including the Foreword INDIES. When not writing for herself, she’s a ghostwriter who has penned over two dozen books for clients, as well as an award-winning editor who has worked with both celebrity and NY Times-bestselling authors. She’s currently pursuing a project called “Author Versus AI,” where she’s writing a book a week over the course of a year, using NO AI at all (52 books total). When not writing, Ms. McBain is the associate editor for the magazine ScribesMICRO and draws all over the walls of her house with the enthusiastic help of her kids. She lives in Alberta, Canada.
