There are basic deliverables that are always present in the output from this service. This foundation can be seen below:
Additional deliverables may be added to the output, based on the findings of the specific analysis.
The SCARE Manuscript Analysis is a comprehensive review of a completed manuscript for a work of fiction, designed to identify its audience, highlight developmental issues, and gives a road map to create a structurally sound manuscript.
The completeness, believability of the story, and worldview are examined in detail. This provides the precise data on how effectively the book's world is created and how well it will be understood by the target audience. The analysis also provides suggestions on possible additional development points for connected storylines.
Audience and market targeting matches the characteristics of the manuscript with the segment of the market most inclined to read the work. This area will address what will attract or detract certain segments of the market, providing consideration points that may help going forward. Cultural and language motility analysis indicates how well the story lends itself for later translation to other languages and sales into other cultures.
Audience affiliation examines how well and why the target will relate to the story. This information is critical to building a loyal and consistent readership.
Lastly, a series of possible next steps is included so that the scope of the suggested changes can be understood and can be made with confidence, minimizing the need for developmental edits by at least half.
All of these evaluation points, metrics, and actionable steps are designed to facilitate the author's continued improvement and growth, as well as the financial success of the published manuscript.
Please note that the secondary upload is available for either a cover or cover blurb for the uploaded manuscript. This is so that the two files can be evaluated for referential integrity.
