What writers are saying

dee cooper

“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.”

Dee Cooper
Published author

“I found Marlowe to be an invaluable tool that I’ll be using with all of my future books.”

Alex Grayson
Published author

“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!”

AD Justice
Romance author

“For the writer serious about a publishing career, Authors AI is an indispensable resource.”

Christine Nolfi
Bestselling author

“I think authors are going to go crazy for Marlowe!”

Samantha Christy
Bestselling romance author

“This tool has been an eye-opener in many different ways. … I loved the report from the first to last line.”

Jamie Summer
Published author
john hindmarsh

“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.”

John Hindmarsh
Bestselling Sci-Fi author
Ellis Leigh

“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.”

Ellis Leigh
USA Today bestselling author

“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!”

Lucinda Brant
New York Times bestselling author
Sarah Dalton

“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.”

Sarah Dalton
Bestselling author

“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.”

Cortney Donelson
Associate Publisher, Morgan James Publishing

“I really like the subject matter book comps, linguistic style comps & your distinctive voice, and comparable titles sections! Those areas are such a unique aspect of Marlowe. I’m still in the revision phase of my novel, but Marlowe’s content impressed my editor. She helped me tease out and identify the places in the middle of the novel to add and subtract content in relation to Marlowe’s beat analysis. This feels like a winning combination.”

Sara Rosett
Bestselling mystery author
J. Alexander Greenwood

“Marlowe exceeds my expectations on every level! I love the detail, which helps me make positive changes and affirm what I’m doing right. I’m going to use the comp data to tweak my marketing, too. I am thrilled with it because I think (like most writers) you often don’t know if you’re on the right track. Marlowe is reassuring about the good stuff and extremely helpful about what needs work.”

J. Alexander Greenwood
Author of the John Pilate Mysteries

“Marlowe reports are fascinating and I find them helpful in terms of seeing the narrative beats and the shape of my latest novel-in-progress, along with pinpointing where the pacing can be tightened. It’s such a great tool.”

Egan Hughes
Psychological suspense author

“Authors A.I. created Marlowe to point out emotional beats, character strengths and weaknesses and so much more. She’s helping me become a stronger writer! I was so happy that the way I always described my book – the comp I always used – was exactly what Marlowe gave me! I love her!”

KerryAnn Lussier
Young Adult author

“I love the book comparisons, and how the narrative beats appear now. I think that’s so helpful in terms of structure.”

Amy Boyles
Bestselling Cozy Mystery author

“I sent my WIP (a historical mystery) to Marlowe a few weeks ago. What an amazing experience! The report came back in about half an hour and was full of all sorts of great info. And I appreciate that possible solutions were put forward. What an incredible resource. I shall definitely use her again in the future.”

Andrea Jacka
Historical Mystery author

“I really love this product. I’m new to fiction writing, but I use corpus-linguistic approaches at my job. So these reports really speak my language.”

Ryan Rivers
Cozy Mystery author
C. Deanne Rowe

“I loved Marlowe. It was so much more than I expected. It was easy to use. The information the report provided will help a lot with my manuscript. The report was 38 pages of very useful information. I’ve already revised my story based on the verb, adverbs, and cliches information.”

C. Deanne Rowe
Amazon bestselling author
Avery Jenkins

“I ran my manuscript for ‘Burning Buddha’ through the @AuthorsAi software. The report had much more than I expected, with solid insights that will help improve it. I am impressed.”

Avery Jenkins
Lola Akinmade Akerstrom

“I ran Authors AI on my manuscript for ‘In Every Mirror She’s Black’ & it helped me tremendously in removing repetitive words, adverbs, adjectives, and more. Fast forward one year, ‘In Every Mirror’ became a Good Morning America Buzz Pick, Amazon Editor’s Pick, and more!”

Lola Akinmade Akerstrom
Bestselling author

“The Author AI pro analysis blew me away. It gave me bestseller comps that included three authors who had inspired me – very reassuring as a new author. It also gave me additional comps to use in marketing. Combined with the plot structure and pacing analysis, I found this a very worthwhile investment.”

E.Z. Prine
General Fiction author

“Authors AI’s “visual plot turns” of my manuscript were so clear. It showed me where to rework the story for the best use of conflict and resolution pace. Awesome feedback.”

Dr. J
Erotica author

“The Marlowe report is amazing. I now know where to concentrate on snip, snip, snipping. As for the comparison to another book and author — that gave me such a burst of confidence, I am still buzzing!”

Angela Clarence

Marlowe was so impressive and helpful in my editorial process that I joined the Authors A.I. team.

I’ve used almost every editorial tool available – and Marlowe is hands down my favorite. I love its developmental-editor-like analysis, which helps me to get a big picture view of my novel.

Tanya Anne Crosby, New York Times Bestselling Author

Marlowe helps me improve my story while also inspiring confidence over the things I’m doing right.

I don’t have to second guess things like plot turns, readability, density of dialogue, narrative beats or pacing.

Tanya Anne Crosby
New York Times Bestselling Author

The Marlowe Pro tool is so good you won’t believe it until you try it. I felt much better about hitting publish on “Anna’s Evidence” knowing that it matched many of the statistical traits of bestsellers.
