About Adam Watt:
I am an award-winning independent Science Fantasy author. I’m currently writing book two of my Rebirth Shades of Apocalypse series. The first book is set in Boise, Idaho and follows the story of Tod, a man who overcomes great adversity in the face of an apocalyptic alien invasion. Tod and his compatriots embark on a galaxy-spanning quest to defeat The Supreme Commander, rescue entire worlds from his evil tyranny and save the universe from complete destruction. I have written three books; the first was my award winning short story called Darkwing: Galaxy of Fear, which was recognized as the most engaging and exciting book in a book writing contest. My second story was The Rebirth Shades of Apocalypse, which is my first novella. It will be published onto Amazon within a week and a half. My third book is The Rebirth Future of Destruction, which is published onto Amazon right now.
What inspires you to write?
I find inspiration from what I see, what I feel, who I’m with, what they’re doing, world events, stories from other authors, my fans, family and friends, and the satisfaction of making the people who read my books smile. The greatest pleasure I can have is when my stories inspire, move and bring joy to the reader.
Tell us about your writing process.
From what I have learned, other authors write a story using a structure as a first draft, then the second draft with more defined stories and characters, then the third draft with a more polished draft, and usually it’s then either further polished or sent to an editor. For me tough, I write stories using a three system method. First I write a story in Microsoft Word with not only a structure but with fully laid out characters and an already constructed world and story. Then I edit it the best I can, and then I send it to the editors.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I can’t honestly say that I talk to them though I do ‘listen’ when they talk to other characters, laugh when they make jokes and sympathize when they fall.
What advice would you give other writers?
The best advice I can give is don’t give up, be proud of every little (or large) accomplishment you have. Believe in yourself and your writing. Have fun, and most of all: Write.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I wanted to be an entrepreneur with my writing, so I took the plunge. I decided to take on the challenge of self-publishing my books. It has been tough, but it has also been an exciting ride.
I would advise other authors to follow their passions and if this entails the self-publishing route or finding an agent and publisher, do so. Either way, have fun and don’t give up!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe that the future is brimming possibilities, ever changing and evolving. With new things on the horizon, dreams being dreamt. The future is hopeful as much as it is mysterious. Things will come; Things will go.
