Who would benefit from an AutoCrit membership?

AutoCrit is specifically designed for authors who want to cut down the time and stress involved in producing a professionally edited manuscript, without compromising on the quality of their work or their creative vision.

I already have a human editor I trust with my work. Would AutoCrit still be helpful?

Yes! When you revise your draft with AutoCrit first, you’ll give your editor a much cleaner manuscript. That means he or she can stop focusing on nitty-gritty details like how many adverbs you’ve used (almost always too many) and start looking at the bigger picture, helping you tune your writing to perfection.

We love human editors (in fact, quite a few use our software!), so it’s our goal to make sure you have the best, most rewarding experience working together.

I’ve worked hard to develop my voice as a writer! Will AutoCrit take that away?

Absolutely not. AutoCrit produces recommendations based on style guidelines and trends in published fiction and non-fiction, but you’re always in control as the author.  There are no hard rights or wrongs, here, so simply ignore any recommendation that doesn’t work for you.

How can I get help with using AutoCrit?

For the best possible user experience, AutoCrit includes a full suite of features guides, explanations to help you interpret each analysis, and advice on best practices for self-editing. If you get stuck, just head to support and we’ll give you guidance.

What kind of tech do I need to use AutoCrit?

AutoCrit is an online web-based software. You can use it from any internet-enabled device, so you’re always ready to write and edit wherever you go (provided there’s an internet connection). Although our website is optimized for mobile viewing, we recommend using a desktop or laptop PC/Mac for the best editing experience.

What if I’m not ready to edit my manuscript yet?

Why not edit as you write? Whether you’re a “pantser” or a planner, AutoCrit will help you edit chapter-by-chapter. You’ll not only be making improvements as you go, you’ll be learning to avoid those issues as your novel progresses. The more you learn, the less you’ll have to fix with future chapters.

How will I know if I like AutoCrit?

Sign up at one of our most popular levels and give it a whirl! You’ll get 14 days of full functionality for just $1, with no obligation to continue beyond that if you don’t want to. If you find you’re not writing (how sad!) and don’t need AutoCrit for a while, simply cancel your subscription. We understand. You can reactivate your membership at any time. Just use the same email address when you purchase, and you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off.

What makes AutoCrit different from apps like Grammarly and tools like ProWritingAid?

It’s really apples and oranges. Grammarly focuses entirely on spelling, grammar, and readability, but that’s only a minor part of AutoCrit. Where ProWritingAid acts as a useful style guide, it lacks the real-world data through which AutoCrit produces recommendations.

Simply put: AutoCrit helps writers quickly and easily refine their work by providing the most relevant, impactful feedback. With dynamic editing guidance that adjusts based on data from millions of published books across many different genres and bestselling authors, AutoCrit is the only online editing platform that keeps your specific needs and target audience firmly in mind.

Did you really scan millions of books to help me compare my writing to published bestsellers?

YES! Literally millions of complete, successful published books have been scanned and fed into AutoCrit software – the only one like it on the market. AutoCrit goes beyond the guidance found in style manuals and editing guides. Creativity meets technology in this real-world data, smartly applied for your benefit.

With AutoCrit, you can compare your work directly to real, published writing from some of the world’s most accomplished authors across fiction and non-fiction. With a mere couple of clicks, you can see how your writing compares to these standards – and make the journey from rough draft to a perfectly polished piece faster than ever before.
