HERE’S LOOKIN’ AT “STATIC,” KID!

SINCE my acting debut in the K. Simmons Production of “Static” (2021), and before accepting a role in K.

Janik) now available in printed, eBook and audiobook formats at https://www.amazon.com/dp/0999693859. Including my new promotional giveaway contest:

WHAT’S IN A TITLE…EVERYTHING!

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, In : books 

I’M often asked how I as an author (Daniel S. Janik aka Raymond Gaynor/Gary Martine) and publisher (Savant Books and Publications at https://www.savantbooksandpublications.com) how I come up with titles for books, and if the title is really that important. My opin: It’s second only to a book’s cover image. Think of the cover image as a “first look” at someone you’ve never met before, and the title as that person’s name. First, it has to be memorable. Second, it has to be just un...

THE MAN IN THE WHITE PANAMA HAT – III

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, In : Acting 

THE author and actor juices are flowing! Last night I had a dream in which a significant plot twist for my next book, “Prophecy,” was revealed. Jumped out of bed and wrote it all down ink on paper in the dark of the night, then popped back in bed for even more reveals. I don’t know about other authors, but dreams are an important pathway for my muse and characters to “speak” directly to me, and I make it a point to listen.


Today, I hope the reverse will happen: I’m scheduled for ...

ALL THE GOOD THAT’S FIT TO PRINT

YESTERDAY I posted on the dark side, so today, in the spirit of “Koyaanisqatsi” I want to restore balance by posting on the lighter, even brighter side. An odd adjective pair? Well, one of the weights on the other side of the balance from dark is light comedy. Aristotle supposedly defined comedy as an imitation of men worse than the average (where tragedy was an imitation of men better than the average) — (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comedy). Ha, ha!

THAT’S right. It’s Sunday and subtlety is what it’s all about. Looking at the City from my apartment, everything looks, well, abnormally normal. Not much traffic. Brilliant day. Not too hot, not too cold. Sun rays peeking through scattered clouds, highlighting the colors of various buildings, as if each highlighted building had a special story to tell. But I’m calling it a subtle Sunday for a reason.

SO WHAT COMES AFTER BOOKS?

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, August 5, 2021, In : Acting 

OVER my 40+ years authoring, I’ve often pondered on what, if anything, comes after books. With bookstores declining and the remainder slanting to “used” (in the auto industry “previously owned”) books; publishing and publicity in COVID disarray; the rise of “anyone can be an author” self-publishing; and the much-tooted decline in readers (thought I wonder if “readership” might not be the better word), what comes after the printed, digital and audio book?

HUMANS are social animals. We thrive on physical contact and savor intimacy. It’s what makes the human world go ’round, and books as well as movies play a big part in satisfying our human need for intimacy. Books have to totally engage the reader’s mind to be “successful,” acting like a basket within which readers place their own experiences that fit into the literary basket’s unique shape. It’s up to the reader which “monkey see, monkey do” neurons are activated. It’s a d...

I don’t know if you have those once-in-a-while angst days like I am having today. It’s not so much a “bad” day as it is that everything seems to have a hidden meaning, and they keep popping up everywhere. A teeshirt phrase, a sign on the side of a passing bus, the here-to-fore “new” meaning hidden in the title of an old book. But it’s not really about all those potential “ah-ha” moments and whether I’m willing and ready to “see” them. It’s not really about my angst. ...

AS the author of THE EDGE OF MADNESS (Aignos 2020) by Raymond Gaynor — TEOM — I’m often asked what PRIMARY genre this Amazon Genre BESTSELLER should best be listed as. What should be an easy question is, if not complex, at least deserving of a post.

VIOLENCE AND SEX

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, In : books 

EVERY author has to, at some time, master writing about violence and sex, two archetypal experiences intrinsic to and representative of human life at any age and time. By this I truly mean “writing about” rather than writing explicit gratuitous violence or sex. It’s the difference between the emotional experience of a soldier being wounded, and a detailed account of every gory detail as the bullet rips through his or her body. The same with sex.

PROFESSIONALISM

I’M not infrequently asked what makes one a “professional” author, dancer or, more recently actor/actress. Actually, the answer is quite easy, but it has several different yet intertwined aspects:


First, there’s the business of whatever it is one is doing. A professional is someone who accepts money or other financial remuneration for what they’re doing. It’s not about how much. It can be $0.01 or the equivalent in barter or trade. The moment one accepts money or other remunerati...

HEY! I’m talking “real” writing, which means recording whatever interests the writer in any written, enduring format.
