Helix Reviews

How Authors are Using the Helix Review

Back in May we launched an experimental new offering called Helix and dubbed it The Personality Test for Your Book. Helix is powered by The Book Genome Project, a massive database of over 100,000 of the world’s best-known books. And basically, it gives you a way to upload your manuscript and get back a rich and unbiased perspective on your book.

Several Lulu authors are using Helix to gain a better understanding of their book for marketing, and sometimes to gain insight into their writing style. For the first time, we’ve caught up with some of the earliest Helix Review customers to hear more about their book and writing style and what they hoped to learn from Helix.

Meet the first authors to use the Helix Review

Starting on Monday, August 5th – we’ll begin profiling the very first, the bold and brave, the curious and pioneering partakers of Helix, in an ongoing series of interviews through the end of October. Our feature schedule is below, and as we release new interviews, we’ll update this post with links directly to them.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was curious what all is required
    to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Cheers

  2. I am curious about Helix Review. I assume there is a fee to use it. How much does it cost?
    Thank you.
