Interview about Isosceles
Upon release of Isosceles in 2013, Scott took part in a virtual tour of promotion first via The World of Ink Network and VS Grenier. One of the first stops was as a guest of a podcast hosted by Grenier, “Stories for Children Show.” Here is a link to check out this interview that covers his writing journey, background, but also some of his many eclectic interests as well in the arts and fitness.
Part of the many perks of his novel, Isosceles initially being represented by MuseItUp Publishing (2012-2021) was the camaraderie of the authors hosting each other on their blogs. The very first site that Scott visited was romance author Helena Fairfax’s over in the UK.
One interview that was especially fun for the YA author was in 2014 with Marni McNiff, the editor of Isosceles. She was able to ask questions from the insight of a person whom was involved with the story from the very beginning. She also was the one who convinced the filmmaker to transform his screenplay into what would become his first novel.
World of Ink Virtual Tour
Shortly after the novel was released as an eBook worldwide through the World of Ink Network, he got to ‘travel’ virtually to various parts of the country as well as a few international spots to appear on podcasts, blogs, and websites to talk about the book.
One of the more unique stops to a fellow MuseItUp author’s page allowed Scott to write a post about the writing process. He enlisted the help of a friend from his college who was native to Sweden that graciously translated for him and Scott turned it into a satirical look at process blended with a bit of a tribute to the late author Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series in some rather unconventional ways.
Before Scott assumed the narrator role in Isosceles, he had been a trained actor studying an eclectic group of performing arts skills portraying an array of characters on stage and screen.He also spent a considerable amount of time learning from some gifted individuals including Sue Shaw at CP Casting, Morgan Murphy of Whitebridge Farm Productions, various instructors at ImprovBoston, and a workshop run by Academy Award winner Ernest Thompson.
Thrown into this mix, at about the midpoint was voiceover training from Jordan Rich at Chart Productions. The following two demos, narration and commercial are the culmination of those lessons recorded at Rich’s studio. The law book audition was conducted at Tweek Sound and Mastering shortly after the demo at Chart Productions was completed. Though he ultimately didn’t get the gig, Scott included it here because he’s happy he did it, but even moreso, he feels learning from mistakes, rejection, and missed opportunities have been invaluable parts of his process.
