Frequently Asked Questions

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

You can purchase as many reports as you like, but the Pro Author Plan is designed for authors who want to run reports on a more frequent basis. We suggest you enroll in that plan if you love your Marlowe report and want more. Explore the Pro Author Plan.

 No. As authors, we take intellectual property seriously. We give you the choice of whether to add your manuscript to our research database.

If you decline, then your work is immediately deleted from our servers after the analysis is run. If you opt into our knowledge base, your work remains anonymous and protected, and it won’t be available for anyone else to access. 

In general, less than an hour! Whether you run the lite or full report, Marlowe is programmed to email you your novel’s report within an hour. Be sure to add [email protected] to your contact list to make sure she doesn’t end up in spam!

Of course. Check out our Sample Reports section above to see the full report in action.

Marlowe’s report offers 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 might identify, such as story beats, overuse of certain words, possible spelling mistakes and much more.

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.

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.
