Awarding-winning author Scott D. Roberts, whose critically acclaimed thriller Vengeance is Now (http://scottdrobertsauthor.blogspot.com/) was published in 2013, takes the helm as 3L Publishing’s new President. After working on various 3L Publishing projects since 2012, Scott D. Roberts officially accepted a partnership as President of 3L Publishing effective in January 2015.
Roberts brings years of experience working in the creative arts and publishing. He has already worked as editor, book coach and collaborator on numerous 3L Publishing projects, including the critically acclaimed and top-selling Dropped-Off Dog (A Mostly-True “Tail”) by Catherine Lagorio, 10 Powerful Women, and dozens of other custom published or private projects.
Roberts’ own writing career has been impressive. He is the author of the award-winning novel, Vengeance Is Now (VIN), which is the first story in the Tate Holloway series. VIN placed as a finalist in the Indie Excellence Awards and was twice-named “Best in New Fiction” for 2013 by the critics. Roberts was also voted as one of the 50 Great Writers You Should Read by the Author’s Show.
He’s also the writer, producer, and co-director of the award-winning documentary, Gas Hole, narrated by Peter Gallagher and is preparing to film Gas Hole 2 in 2015. He’s written over 50 screenplays and TV shows during a career that spans over 20 years and has had his projects optioned and/or developed by New Line, Warner Brothers, Paramount, MGM, EUE/Screen Gems and Columbia. He is excited to release his second book Hidden Agenda in summer 2015 and looks forward to more stories involving the heroic but flawed character of Tate Holloway.
As 3L Publishing’s president and creative visionary, he will be expanding book trailer and video production, overseeing print and digital publishing (eBooks), developing and acquiring manuscripts for traditional publishing, and working on the expansion of the fiction catalog. Roberts is an excellent book coach and collaborator and looks forward to working even closer with the authors to make their dreams come true.
