Writers Who Mean Business (TM) Monthly Meetup

  • Apr 13, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Scott D. Roberts, new author of the thriller Vengeance is Now, debuts his novel to the Sacramento market at this fabulous launch party. Please join us for food and celebration at Bar West. Members will enjoy as Roberts reads from the book and gives a brief presentation on "Anatomy of Storytelling". A 3L Publishing book coach and editor, Roberts can share his experience as a first-time author and regale the group with stories of his years working in Hollywood as a screenwriter and producer. He will also sign pre-release copies of the book, which releases nationally into major bookstores and Amazon in May.

Vengeance is Now -- A down-and-out and disgraced former police detective and P.I., Tate Holloway has turned to a life of soaking his sorrows in a bottle of Tequila, smoking weed, and turning tricks with high-class wealthy women to make a living. Balancing his empty life of surfing and keeping his secret life away from his girlfriend, Tate finds his entire world turned upside down when he’s set up, framed, and forced to go on the run for unspeakable crimes.

Scott D. Roberts is the writer, producer, and co-director of the award-winning documentary, "Gas Hole," narrated by Peter Gallagher. He is also the executive producer, writer, and co-host of the monthly segment, "Gas Hole of the Month" which airs on FSTV. He wrote, produced, and/or directed two reality pilots in the last three years, "Giving, Celebrity Style," starring Melinda Clarke ("Nikita," "The O.C.") and "Ted & Jason: Building an Empire," featuring the hair stylist to the stars, Ted Gibson. 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.

    I've not done any writing on a big scale. I have had a few poems used by Rocklin Jubilee Commitee and Rocklin Park and Rec Dept, as well as a few poems used at work to support programs such blood drives, production pushes, vanpooling or carpooling. I've been working on book more for therapic purposes than for writing a book, after two of my friends seen my notes, they keep saying that Ishould finish itand get it published. I no longer have the 'no time' excuse. I enjoy writing for fun so I would like try and figure out if I do have want it takes or if I should just keep writing my ditties for friends and family and forget writing for any thing more. I know that I will not figure this out bygoing to a meeting or two but I believe by being involved with this group I shall discover my patg
