What publishers are saying

“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.”

We've got A's for your Q'S

Can I download or print the reports?

Absolutely! Once Marlowe runs the report, it is emailed to you in .docx format. At that point, you can print or download it to your computer for permanent record-keeping.

How many Basic reports can I run?

We have not set a maximum number of times you may run a Marlowe Basic report. Please don’t engage in activities that would strain our capacity, which would be a violation of our Terms of Service.

What is the difference between a Basic and Pro report?

Many authors start with Marlowe Basic before upgrading to the Marlowe Pro plan. Scroll up to view the feature comparison chart.

Is my privacy or intellectual property or copyright at risk?

No. As authors, we take intellectual property seriously. Authors A.I. will retain an encrypted, password-protected copy of your manuscript strictly for statistical and A.I. developmental purposes. Your manuscript and its report will remain anonymous and protected, and it won’t be available for anyone to access outside of our research environment and development team.

How long do I have to wait for a report?

In general, less than a half hour! Whether you run the Basic or Pro report, Marlowe is programmed to email your novel’s report to you within an hour. Be sure to add [email protected] to your contact list to make sure her emails don’t wind up in spam!

Can I see an example of a full A.I. report?

Of course. Scroll up to the View a Pro Report section of this page.

Will I still need an editor or proofreader?

Marlowe’s reports are a great way to understand the structure, pacing and potential of your manuscript. And the report will point out many of the elements that a developmental editor or proofreader could pick up, such as story beats, overuse of certain words, and possible spelling mistakes.

That said, unless you’re a really good editor as well as a good writer, we recommend that you work with real human beings to edit and proofread your work after you incorporate Marlowe’s feedback. Don’t forget beta readers, too.

Do I need to be good with technology to use Marlowe?

Not at all! As long as you can convert your manuscript into a Word or plain-text document, you’re good to go. We’ve made the whole process simple for authors. It’s Marlowe and her programmers who perform the technical wizardry.

Can I publish my report online?

Sorry, we’re afraid that’s not allowed under the Terms of Service. However, you’re free to use component parts, such as the graphics, and write about them.
