What is

If you're Leonardo Da'Vinci, bookmatch is your Vitruvian Man.

Reinventing Novel Consulting

Traditional fiction novel consulting costs hundreds of dollars and provides limited insight. By analyzing thousands of books in our database using proven machine learning techniques, we can tell you what makes a bestselling book and what doesn't.

Before you start writing, look at bestselling plot structures, character traits, themes, topics, and writing styles of thousands of books. Upload your own manuscript to see how it compares and learn how you can improve it.

Features Short List

Bookmatch can help you with the following:

  • Plot structuring

Build Interesting Characters

Bestselling characters have needs and wants. Many are assertive and self-assured. Bookmatch can describe your novel's characters to make sure they are all they can be.

The Thematic Recipe

As the old maxim says, "write what you know." Before reading an author's novel, a devoted reader already has an expectation of the themes to be covered. Find a recipe of topics you know and stick close to it.

A limited number of topics in your novel implies focus and depth. Bestselling authors know how to balance the topics they discuss, and we've got the math to prove it.
