Tell us a bit about Daughters of Darkwana:
Trapped in a fantasy world laden with Japanese mythology, Wally Cook must avoid super natural assassins, befriend a clan of kitsunes, and save the world of Darkwana. If he cannot save their world, he cannot save ours. If he cannot face his inner demons, he cannot defeat Darkwana’s own.
How would you describe your writing style:
While most fantasy writers use a long-winded style that builds upon their worlds via rich histories and character backgrounds, I use a minimalist’s style rarely seen in fantasy. As a result, my plot moves like greased lightning.
Why did you decide to try Helix:
I felt curious to see what information it could share with me.
What were you able to learn from the Helix Review:
That my fantasy novel moves at a significantly faster pace than most.
About the Helix Review
Back in May we launched an experimental new offering called Helix, and dubbed it The Personality Test for Your Book. Helix is powered by The Book Genome Project, a massive database of over 100,000 of the world’s best-known books. And basically, it gives you a way to upload your manuscript and get back an incredibly rich and unbiased perspective on your book.
Lulu authors are currently using Helix to gain a better understanding of their book for marketing purposes, and in some cases to gain insight into their writing style. For the first time, we’ve caught up with some of the earliest Helix Review customers to hear more about their book and writing style and what they hoped to learn from Helix.
If you are an author that has used Helix and would like to be featured in the future, please tell us about your experience here.
