What writers are saying
“I love this! I tested it out on one of my older novels. Nailed it! I do a lot with publishing and this is going to be one of my new favorite tools.”
“I found Marlowe to be an invaluable tool that I’ll be using with all of my future books.”
“This program is AWESOME! I definitely want more than one pass at it. I used my unfinished manuscript to check myself and the feedback is SOOO helpful!”
“For the writer serious about a publishing career, Authors AI is an indispensable resource.”
“I think authors are going to go crazy for Marlowe!”
“This tool has been an eye-opener in many different ways. … I loved the report from the first to last line.”
“The free report is a gem. It provides a quick assessment, though not as detailed as the main report. Do I really need that many adverbs? Adjectives? Clichés, too. The more detailed report – yes, it costs money – takes some more time to assess. The Plot Structure is the core piece of data and reflects the ups and downs of the characters’ journey. Excellent material for determining whether you’re on course or not.”
“Marlowe is a powerful and impressive tool for authors of all levels. Even with over fifty books under my belt, I was able to see where my next manuscript may need a few tweaks to give my readers a more enjoyable experience.”
“Wow! I LOVE it! The report I received was comprehensive and useful and I’ll definitely be putting into action most of the suggestions given to make my ms even better. Thank you!”
“Marlowe is a fantastic resource for writers. Not only does it break down the elements of a bestseller, but it shows you the beats of your story, gives you an indication of how accessible your novel is, and hunts out all your overused words and phrases. All of these elements combine to create an indispensable first pass for your novel.”
“Marlowe has become a wonderful addition to our fiction manuscript review process. Our human assessment paired with the AI analysis allows us to provide authors with a level of feedback they appreciate and gives us, as the potential publisher, a well of information.”
“Students in my AP Computer Science Principles class greatly benefited from our discussion of Authors AI. Recently, we completed a unit on the use of data. Now, we study the impact of societal innovations. The report from Marlowe speaks to both. We talked about Plot Structure for best sellers as compared to my novel. One student said, ‘Authors could also use this to pace their plot (the time between dips and highs).’ In this case, my novel closely followed one of the seven archetypes. Win!”
