Brandon Overall on Having a Writing Schedule #amwriting #amreading #scifi

at 2:30 PM

How often do you write? And when do you write?
-While working on my book I wrote a lot.  I wrote the first draft in a month and spent 3-4 hours per day writing.  I usually write best in the mornings or in the evening while listening to music.
Do you have an organized process or tips for writing well? Do you have a writing schedule?
-Nope, I am not too serious about it so I just do it when I feel like it.  It’s not a job for me, it’s just a hobby.  If writing starts to stress me out, then it stops being fun and I stop doing it.
Sometimes it’s so hard to keep at it - What keeps you going?
-After putting so many hours into a work, it would be a shame to quit and have all that time go to waste.  I want to finish what I started!
Have you met any people in the industry who have really helped you?
-Not yet
What do you hope people will take away from your writing? How will your words make them feel?
-I want people to put themselves in the shoes of the main character of my book and imagine what they would do with that kind of power.
What’s your favorite meal?
-Sushi for sure!
What movie do you love to watch?
-I love lots of different kinds of movies, I can’t really pick just one, but in general I love sci-fi movies.  Especially about aliens.
How do you feel about social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter? Are they a good thing?
-They are a great resource to keep in touch with your readers, and I think the ability for a new author to go viral through social media is great and lets talent get discovered easily.
If you could do any job in the world what would you do?
-I’m already doing it!

Superhuman Nature is Brandon Overall's first novel. It was written and published during his first deployment to Afghanistan as a 2nd Lieutenant in late 2013.
Neil Hitchens was a senior ROTC Cadet in college. He was just weeks away from graduating and becoming an Officer in the United States Army, until a strange dream set off a chain of events that would twist his life into something he could have never prepared for.
In the days following his dream, several strange happenings occurred that he began to suspect were the result of his own actions. Before long, he discovered that he had the ability to control the world around him with his mind.
What started out as an unpredictable ability quickly evolved into an extraordinary power that had the capacity to change the world. It didn't take long for the government to find out what Neil could do.
They knew having such limitless potential on the side of the US Military could give them limitless political influence, and they would stop at nothing to get Neil to do their bidding. They would find out what happens when you back a dangerous animal into a corner.
Neil spent his whole life believing he would amount to greatness, but he never expected how greatness could corrupt even the most innocent of minds.
