T. L. Scott


TL Scott grew up in a small town in southern Illinois. At an early age he found the power of stories to whisk him away on adventures to far away lands and travel to the stars.

Mr. Scott spent most of his life travelling to far away lands and to this day continues to gaze up at those far away stars.

He balances his time with the loves of his life reading, writing, and his family.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I really believe in this story and these characters. I want to share them with you and the quickest way to do so was to be an indie author. The traditional publishers are extremely selective and do not publish many new authors.

I have the paperback version of the story in the process of being published by Horton Jones. They are a new publisher to the industry.

Maybe after A Life Worth Living has its own following one of the major publishers will be interested in representing the story. I respect how broad their distribution channels are and hope in time you can find A Life Worth Living at every outlet that sells books.

That distribution reach is one of the things that really impressed me about Smashwords. They are definitely helping me to reach my goal of getting my story to as many readers as possible. Thank you Smashwords!
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
As I stated in another answer, one of the things that really impressed me about Smashwords was its ability to distribute my story to so many major outlets. In addition to that the process was easy to navigate through and fast. Once the manuscript was converted and the errors fixed Smashwords sent the e-book out for distribution in a matter of days.

Success is measured in different ways. I prefer to measure mine in milestones. With the help of Smashwords I have achieved my second step in the process. I am now a published author. The first step was completing the novel A Life Worth Living.

I will continue to publish with Smashwords as I really like their business model and their ability to get my stories out to you for your enjoyment.
