YOU'RE NOT JUST HIRING AN EDITOR.
YOU'RE JOINING OUR FAMILY.
That sinking feeling. You hit send on the PayPal button and imagine your hard-earned cash floating through the interwebs to someone you don’t know, somewhere else in the world.
Most of the time, you can count on that “editor” doing something to your manuscript, but you’re not really sure what. What are they doing? A developmental edit? Content editing? Proofreading? All? None?
The confusion about editing services causes you genuine anxiety. You want to invest in your manuscript and you’re not against spending the money provided it’s someone you can trust—an editor trained in a story methodology who can deliver on what’s promised.
You wince, recalling what happened that one time you tried having your Aunt Helen “edit” your manuscript. It’ll be years before the scars from those one-star reviews fade.
A TRUSTED VOICE IN THE AUTHOR COMMUNITY
And then you remember that “Authors on a Train” guy. His name is J. Thorn, and along with his business partner Zach Bohannon, they published that book—THREE STORY METHOD. The title has almost 250 Amazon reviews with a 4.4/5 average. Thorn co-wrote multiple books with Joanna Penn. He’s been a trusted voice in the author community for over a decade.
What if you could hire a THREE STORY METHOD editor? Someone trained by J. to make your story the best it can be without overcomplicated theory and endless spreadsheets?
Now, you can. Do you want to know more? Of course, you do.
WE'RE HERE FOR YOU
No more worrying about the PayPal payment you sent to some sketchy email address. You don’t need to sort through thousands of editors on those freelance platforms. Forget combing through the front matter of books, looking for the name of an editor who probably won’t give you the time of day.
Now, you can hire a certified Three Story Method Editor!
Not only will you find the right editor for your style or genre, and someone personally trained (in person, not through some hokey online video course), but you’ll work with an editor who understands how you feel because every Three Story Method Editor is also an author.
Imagine how it feels to get feedback from someone who knows and understands your genre. Experience pure, artistic collaboration in a positive and supportive environment. Revel in the afterglow of a tough but meaningful revision.
But the support doesn’t stop just because you’ve started final revisions. Every Story Diagnostic from every certified Three Story Method Editor also comes with an entire year of membership in our author community, worth almost $500!
You’ll join our private and exclusive Slack group where you’ll not only have access to your editor, but to all the certified Three Story Method Editors. Plus, inside our membership, you’ll find dozens of online classes, webinars, and books for aspiring authors.
Stop wasting your precious time and money. Solve your “editor problem” once and for all.
THE CERTIFIED EDITORS
You’ve finished that last revision! You send your certified Three Story Method Editor a direct message in Slack to let them know the book will be on Amazon soon. That book is published!
You sit back and smile, deciding to take a walk and grab a cup of coffee before starting the next project.
No more anxiety about hiring an editor or worrying about where your money is going. You now have a writing family. You’re one of us. We’ll be here for this book and every other book you plan to write.
You’re not just hiring an editor. You’re joining our family. Welcome home.
Yes. I’ve trained a select group of authors to become certified Three Story Method Editors to help writers create better stories because I’m only one person. With a team of editors, we hope to be able to help more people. Although I don’t take clients very often these days, I do have a few services available that you can see by clicking on my profile.
It depends on the editor, specialty, genre, time-frame, etc. The basic Story Diagnostic is offered by each editor in the same way. Each editor has the option to set their own prices, although no editor offers a Story Diagnostic for less than $1,499. Providing a comprehensive suite of services, you can access each editor’s offerings by clicking on their profile.
We believe storytelling shouldn’t be complicated. By focusing on a few core concepts (gotta love those 3Cs!), the majority of authors can learn how to tell stories that work.
Yes! We know that our private and exclusive community differentiates us from all editor-author marketplaces because we’re interested in making the writer better, not just the manuscript. Every Story Diagnostic (from any certified Three Story Method Editor) includes a free year of membership in The Author Success Mastermind community run by J. Thorn and Crys Cain.
Yes! All current members of The Author Success Mastermind receive a 15% “friends and family” discount from all certified Three Story Method Editors.
We guarantee that not only your manuscript will improve after working with one of our editors, but so will your storytelling chops. Nobody can promise you sales, success, glory, or fame. Beware of anyone that does.
Maybe. I have tentative plans to offer another in-person certification weekend in 2022. The application will only be open to current members of The Author Success Mastermind community.
No, but I’m working on it.
