The Helix Review provides a detailed analysis of your submitted manuscript by comparing it with all published works within The Book Genome Project as well as making specific comparisons to titles in your chosen genre.
Currently we offer The Helix Review for manuscripts or books published on Lulu.com that meet the following criteria:
We look forward to adding additional genres soon!
The Helix Review Lite contains only the sections Keywords, Data Worth Knowing and Writing Style. The Helix Review contains these sections, as well as Themes & Story DNA, and Comparable Titles from your genre and from all titles in The Book Genome Project.
This analytical, data-driven approach can help you see your work in a new way. More specifically, your personalized report compares your manuscript to those of well-known, popular authors. You can use the information provided in the report to refine your work to better meet the expectations of your targeted audience, to draw comparisons with popular authors when marketing your work, or to differentiate your work from current trends in literature.
The interior of your manuscript will be indexed and analyzed, then statistics specific to your content, use of dialog and description, vocabulary, sentence and paragraph structure, pacing, and theme treatment are compiled. Based on these statistics, your manuscript will be scientifically compared to more than 100,000 books listed in The Book Genome Project. Your personalized report displays how your content, style, setting, and approach compare with published authors in general as well as successful authors within your selected genre.
The Helix Review provides valuable insight into how your manuscript and style stack up against published authors with a similar subject matter or genre. It does not, however, quantify your writing as good or bad, nor does it make specific recommendations to improve your writing or style.
No carbon-based beings are involved in the process. In order to provide a completely objective report, your manuscript will be indexed, electronically analyzed, and compared with published books listed in The Book Genome Project. A personalized Helix Review for your manuscript will be automatically generated.
The Book Genome Project is an indexed repository of more than 100,000 published works by popular authors representing all genres. The Book Genome is derived through the analysis and comparison of books, based primarily on language, character, and theme. These components are mined and analyzed in order to sift, organize, categorize and ultimately separate one book from another. The fundamental goal of the project is to develop ways to intelligently understand the content and make-up of books, then to apply that knowledge so that lesser-known books and authors are more easily discovered.
Additions to The Book Genome Project are currently limited to titles submitted by traditional publishing houses.
