SPSU sophomore and honors student, Lindsey Bradford, just published her first book, "Ashway". We sat down with Lindsey to talk to her about the book, her SPSU experience and
How did the book come about? Where did you come up with the idea?
I was driving thru downtown Atlanta and looking around. I sometimes try to imagine what the world would look like post-apocalypse - sometimes with zombies. So I was imagining downtown Atlanta and the idea just snowballed from there.
Did you know from the beginning what the entire plot would be?
No, actually. I knew I wanted to have characters that survived that would be unexpected. Everyone always thinks it will be the preppers holed up with guns and supplies that survive. Or guys like Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead. But I wanted to have ordinary people make it.
It just unfolded as I wrote.
How did you get your book deal?
I heard Braniac Studios were looking for unpublished authors and thought I would give it a shot. I sent my manuscript in, they tested it with readers and they offered me a deal.
Do you have other book ideas?
Any plans for a sequel?
I'm toying with the idea of a prequel but I'm not sure yet. Braniac has been happy with my sales and Amazon ratings and invited me to do more with them but right now, I am trying to focus on finishing this school year and taking a little time off.
