Target Reader Manuscript Analysis™ (TRMA)


Fewer books are earning back their advances and with the growth of self-publishing, individual books aren’t selling like they once did. The average reader’s attention span is shrinking and it’s imperative that your book immediately captivates your target audience.

The Target Reader Manuscript Analysis™ provides an independent and unbiased analysis of your manuscript— surveying real readers on what they think about your book before it goes to market.

Get a comprehensive analysis of your manuscript 5 to 6 weeks after purchasing the service, complete with suggested improvements and direct input from real, anonymous readers.

What you can expect

  • Choose from a focus group of 12 or 20 real readers in your target market committed exclusively to reading your manuscript.
  • Independently confirm to publishers/agents your book’s current market appeal.

  • Get feedback on what title your readers like best.

  • Make guided adjustments to your manuscript before it’s set in stone.

  • Be more confident that your book will sell.

After reading your manuscript, an AuthorTalk™curator will evaluate each of the Target Reader’s inputs, providing you with a thorough analysis on how to strengthen your manuscript.
