Since the advent of the word processor, the only objective measure of a novel has been word count.
AnalyzeNovels seeks to expand this level of objectivity by simultaneously comparing (up to) 10 manuscripts against each other in over 20 different technical characteristics. The result? AnalyzeNovels produces intelligent graphs and charts that quickly identify the technical differences and/or similarities between novels. Not better, not worse -- just similar or different.
This can help you separate the wheat from the chaff (AnalyzeNovels finds clichés and reports on them, too!) when editing or reviewing a large manuscript, or a number of manuscripts.
And, better yet, AnalyzeNovels provides sorted reports allowing you to focus on the bigger problems, first.
I’m a new writer just completing my first novel. Brian ran my latest draft through his program. WOW, the search for overused words and phrases is wonderful. I didn't realize how many times characters were apologizing to each other until I searched on the word ‘sorry’. The analysis helped tighten up the prose in the final draft and saved me a ton of time, not to mention aggravation.

Your program has found a number of areas where I need to tighten up my writing. It has picked up some weaknesses I didn't know I had. Very useful!

I have used Brian’s program more than once. He will run my novels in comparison to classic novels to help me improve my writing style. In addition, he saves all my previous submissions so he can compare it to my most recent submission. This gives me a snapshot of my improvement as a writer.
The program also reveals my problem areas, which helps me address issues to improve my writing. Good examples to illustrate this are the identification of over-used words and redundant phrases in my writing.
It has been a pleasure interacting with Brian as he shares his talents to help aspiring writers.
