What makes a great novel? Put ten authors into a room and you will get 18 different answers!
Yet, most authors will agree that when you are targeting a particular genre, say Young Adult (YA), you should stick to the literary yard sticks of the like-minded novels already in print. The number of words, the average word length, the number of unique words as a population of all words (unique word density), the average length of your paragraphs, and so on, become critical to your novel's success. Statistical outliers have a reduced chance of success in this industry where even the smallest deviation will cause the agent or publisher to discard even before a reading.
Analyze Novels does just that. It can compare your novel against the greats. It current knows how to parse...
...to produce intelligent graphs and charts of not only your work, but of other works in your genre. Works of your choice.
