Kobo Writing Life is pleased to announce our partnership with the Three Story Method Editing Agency.


Writing a book can be a lonely endeavor, maybe one even fraught with self-doubt. You’ve got all these words on the page and don’t know if they are any good. How do you know if the story even works?

Or maybe you don’t have the words on the page yet. Maybe every time you sit down, you go blank. Or maybe you can’t even seem to find the time or energy to sit down at the page at all.

What next? How do you get out of the slump, straighten up that mindset, put words on the page, and know that they work as a story?

The Certified Three Story Method Editors at Three Story Method Editing Agency have all been trained and vetted by author and entrepreneur, J. Thorn, and can provide community, coaching, and editorial services for any stage of the writing journey you are on.

The best thing you can do for a completed manuscript is run it through a free tool at TheAuthorLife.com called a Story Rubric. See how it adds up in areas, like: characterization, character arc, emotional tone, pacing, dialogue, genre expectations, and the Three Cs–Conflict, Choice, and Consequence.

Better yet, have a certified Three Story Method Editor do it for you. They will thoughtfully read through your entire manuscript–specifically looking into those areas–and meet with you via Zoom for an hour to go through the Story Rubric together. You’ll receive the audio and video files from the call, the Editorial Letter, and the completed Story Rubric. You’ll always get a free e-book copy of the Three Story Method: Foundations of Fiction, and a personal invite to The Author Life Community, where you will meet your writer family and “transform from a struggling writer into a thriving author.”

J. founded The Author Life Community because he loves writing and can’t not do it. He says, “We’re a small family of writers and creatives dedicated to improving our craft, honing our marketing chops, and supporting each other every step of the way. Like Seth Godin says, ‘People like us do things like this.’”
