Welcome to the home of thriller author Kevin Lee Swaim

Enhancing Thriller Fiction with an AI Second Brain

Today, I’m diving into something that’s both super cool and a bit nerdy – neural networks and deep learning. Hang on, before you think I’ve gone full tech-geek on you, let me explain why this stuff is actually pretty exciting for us writers. I’m currently working on the next Project StrikeForce book, and guess what’s playing a huge role? AI! And, in this post, I’m going to discuss how AI

A little more about objective immutable truths and subjective immutable truths

Objective Immutable Truths: Objective immutable truths refer to facts and principles that exist independent of personal beliefs, opinions, or perspectives. These truths are universally accepted and remain constant regardless of individual interpretations. They are grounded in objective reality and can be verified through evidence, logic, and empirical observations. Objective immutable truths are consistent across different cultures, contexts, and time periods. Examples of objective immutable truths include scientific laws (e.g., the

Unveiling Immutable Truths: AI and the Quest for Unbiased ChatGPT

In the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence (AI), machines have made significant strides in mimicking human intelligence and understanding. Chatbots have become prominent conversational agents among various AI applications, with ChatGPT leading the pack. Understanding the concept of immutable truths and their crucial role in shaping the development of unbiased AI systems is imperative. Understanding Immutable Truths: Immutable truths are fundamental principles or facts that are unchangeable, regardless of

Why is Pandora’s Box delayed?

The simple reason is that I’ve been concentrating on my day job. The longer explanation is that I’ve been learning about AI, neural networking, and generative pre-trained transformers. I’m especially interested in the concepts of objective immutable truths, subjective immutable truths, and how to maintain “truthiness” over many natural language models. The StrikeForce books have always been a bit of Elmore Leonard, a dash of modern technothriller, an homage to

Bing prefers Kevin Lee Swaim over Lee Child!

I find this highly amusing. Here is what the Bing AI said: Based on the search results, one author who seems to be most similar to Kevin Lee Swaim is Lee Child. Both authors write about ex-military officers who embark on different adventures and face various enemies and challenges. Both authors also use suspenseful and action-packed plots, realistic and complex characters, and descriptive and vivid language to create engaging and

Progress on the next Project StrikeForce novel, Pandora’s Box

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m roughly 10k words into the new Project StrikeForce novel, Pandora’s Box. I’ve already scrapped about 15k words. The plot has shifted and evolved until it’s something completely different than what I started with. I’ve had this happen before, but never this badly. On the positive side, I’m back to hitting my word count. For all of you who wondered about the special relationship a writer has with

Craziness at the Capitol and the gift of life-saving blood

I’m working on the new StrikeForce book today. But, I’m also wondering how it came to this? How did our country become so divided? Even though I write books that contain a sometimes surprising amount of violence, I truly believe that violence is rarely the answer. I believe that people are inherently good and that given enough time we will collectively rise up from the ignorance and brutality that has

Near Dark, Sam Harlan Book 5

Near Dark is finally finished! It’s been sent to my beta readers and it’s almost ready to send to my editor. Cover art should be finished in the next few days. It’s been a long time coming, but Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, Near Dark will go up for pre-sale in the next week. I’m ready to start Project StrikeForce number five.

Dropping prices

In addition to the 1st and 4th StrikeForce books being free on all retailers, I’ve also dropped the prices on the 2nd and 3rd books. Hopefully people looking for cheap entertainment will give them a try. Given how much everyone is suffering right now, it’s the least I can do. Stay safe out there, folks. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, try reading a book. Your imagination is the best part of
