Accuracy of Book Profile

Yes, the book profile accurately reflects the book.

Draw of Story

The story has lots of supernatural elements like haunted houses, ghosts and long lost love. There story is written well, drawing the audience in from the beginning.

Possible Drawbacks

The story is essentially an erotic, incestual story that should be described as sexual assault. Josiah's ghost is enthralling his descendants, thinking their his dead wife and having sex with them. Some seem willing but his daughter was not. Amanda tries to tell him she is his granddaughter but doesn't get the chance before her legs are pried open. This happens to generations of his descendants and no one seems to have a problem with it. They all seem pleased with the mind shattering pleasure they receive from him knowing he's their ancestor. This would be difficult to get past to understand the story. There is no real plot outside of the many, many sexual encounters that are explained.

Use of Special Effects


Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that Amanda learns of the haunting of her ancestral home when her great, great, great grandfather appears believing she is his dead wife. Amanda begins an intense sexual relationship with him that has occurred with many generations of her family members. This would draw audiences for the steamy sex scenes but the incest immediately deflects from it.

Fanbase Potential

This would not have a large fanbase because this story is filled with incest and sexual abuse. Consent is up for questioning because of the nature of the story.

Awards Potential

This does not have awards potential. The main focus of the story is the sex and illicit details of the encounters with Josiah. There is not much of a story around it.

Envisioned Budget

What’s New About the Story

The story is original because it's an erotic story surrounding a ghosts and generations of a family. It also entails a man sodomizing the female descendants of his family. If he was not their ancestors, this would be more entertaining. There needs to be more of a resolution to the story. At the moment, it's just a lot of sex scenes and retelling of Josiah and Melissa's love story.

Lead Characters

The lead character stands out for her acceptance of her unusual circumstances. She is in an incestuous relationship with her ancestor and looks forward to it. Amanda also introduces her other family members to Josiah and his attentions. None of the woman try to find a way to stop this situation either. They pass the information down like a legacy.

Uniqueness of Story

This is a rare story but not a gem. The erotic, haunted house story is intriguing but the incestuous element is turns it into a different story. Josiah is having sex with his family members. Even though he might not be aware because he is a ghost and think they are his wife, the woman are. It introduces themes of sexual assault, incest and mental illness. Without the familial connection and a more developed plot, this could be a popular story.

Analyst Recommendation



While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.

Tips for Improvement

For this to be a consider, the incestual relationship needs to change. Amanda could have bought this house and renovated it when she is drawn to Josiah's painting and he appears. There needs to be clear consent on her part as well. The generations of family that have sexual encounters should also be removed because of the incest and question of consent. It makes for a very uncomfortable story. It could be a steamy, paranormal story which are popular in books but incest will not gain this story wide spread popularity.
