The Three Story Method

The Three Story Method is available now! Zach and J. go deep on their methodology in this episode, discussing how it evolved and why now is the right time to share it with other authors.

In addition, the two career authors discuss the primary objections to using any story framework or methodology, the rule of three, the six elements, and the core concept of the Three Story Method.

Three Story Method has been published wide, on all major platforms for both ebook and paperback markets. The audiobook version is currently in review at Findaway where it will also be distributed wide to multiple, global platforms.

Early feedback on the official Three Story Method Workbook is positive.
