EDITING KINDRED - THE 2018 SAVANT POETRY ANTHOLOGY

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, In : Just Released 

Taking the reins of KINDRED - 2018 Savant Poetry Anthology was for me an honor. It was also a chance to wear another hat, that of a guest editor, and view the poems from a different perspective. Having taught English and Literature in bygone days, it was a refreshing experience to look thru the eyes of the poets and commit myself to the navigation of their words, images, points of view, and conclusions. 


Poetry is for me the thread that links us all. As children, the first things we recite and...

MEET E. M. DUESEL

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, January 11, 2018, In : Just Released 
As a young adult, E. M. Duesel thoroughly enjoyed acting and dancing, and had the great fortune of being on stage for about six years. During those years, she learned character development and definition. This later became very useful in her writing. With her career as a sociologist, she has been able to combine real life experiences with research into informative and relevant stories, churning personalities she has met along the way into characters with deeply meaningful connections to the n...

RESEARCH AND FEELINGS - BENTLEY GATES

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, September 5, 2014, In : Just Released 
My life has been immersed in books as long as I can remember. My father was a freelance magazine writer. My parents met at a publishing company where he was a researcher and she was an administrative assistant. I grew up in a home where books were treasured; bookshelves lined the walls and hallways, and overflowed with tomes of myriad genres. As a youngster I wrote short stories and novelettes to entertain myself and my friends. But the time available for writing was quickly taken over after ...

Savant Poetry Anthologies

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, June 14, 2012, In : Just Released 
I often heard readers, bookstores and publishers alike say with a grim, Nietzschesque frown, "Poetry is dead." And, if one is to believe that publishing is all about "making money," they certainly may be correct. But publishing, at least at Savant Books and Publications, isn't just about money; it's about sharing fine literature with readers all over the world. In sort, communication. But not just communication - if prose is the bread and butter of literary publishing (and it is), then poetry...

A New Face

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, January 24, 2011, In : Just Released 
Introducing David B. Seaburn, author of the just-released, coming-of-age novel, CHARLIE NO FACE:



Hello All!

I started writing seriously when I entered seminary at Boston University in 1972. There I was published for the first time—a series of poems in an alumni journal, work lost long ago. In the parish, though, I became a disciplined writer, having to produce a sermon each week, both a literary and theological task. The challenge was to write at the intersection of human experience and divin...

The World of Lawyers and Their Manifest Intent

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, December 6, 2010, In : Just Released 
After the release by Savant Books of my Hawaiian thriller, Kanaka Blues, with its backdrop of Hawaiian sovereignty, I have gone back to my roots.  Manifest Intent, my second Savant work, is set in the world of lawyers and law firms, which has been my world for over twenty-seven years.  John Grisham and Scott Turow may have invented the legal thriller genre, or at least popularized it wildly, but the legal world, with its own rules and language, is a natural for mysteries.  I hop...

Don "Four Arrows" Trent on LAST SONG OF THE WHALES

Posted by Daniel S. on Sunday, September 19, 2010, In : Just Released 

After having authored nineteen non-fiction books on Indigenous worldviews, cultural hegemony, human rights, critical thinking and wellness, books that have been lauded by such thinkers as Noam Chomsky, Thom Hartmann, Sonita Gandhi, Dan Millman, Sam Keen, Vine Deloria, Jr., Eagleman and many of the world’s top environmental organizations, I think my first fiction book (not counting a children’s book I wrote in 1978), LAST SONG OF THE WHALES, might have a bigger impact on helping us return ...

Lift-Off of Orest Stocco's Dramatic Novel MY UNBORN CHILD

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, August 23, 2010, In : Just Released 
“Houston, we have lift-off,” Penny, my life companion said to me one morning standing in the doorway of my writing den. “Pardon?” I said, not making the connection. She repeated the phrase, and it hit me – Savant Books and Publications had just offered me a contract for my novel MY UNBORN CHILD! That’s how my relationship with Daniel S. Janik, the publisher and editor-in-chief of Savant books began; he offered me a chance to launch MY UNBORN CHILD, and I use the word launch delibe...

Introducing Georgian Bay Author, Orest Stocco

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, August 19, 2010, In : Just Released 
Born with a spiritual restlessness that could not be tamed by my Christian faith, I became a spiritual seeker when I discovered reincarnation in Plato’s Dialogues at the age of fifteen. I grew up in a small town in North Western Ontario, and at twenty-one I had my own pool hall and vending machine business; but my restless spirit called me away to seek out my destiny, and I sold my business and sailed to France.


In the Alpine city of Annecy, in the Haute-Savoie region of France I had a drea...

Introducing W. C. Peever, Author of THE JUMPER CHRONICLES

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, July 27, 2010, In : Just Released 
Dear Readers,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, though I guarantee my personal story is nowhere near as interesting as the stories I pen.  Perhaps it is for that very reason that I write.  I was born and raised in the small harbor town of Swampscott, Massachusetts, by my mother, a single parent, who gave all she could, often going without herself, and by my grandparents, both selfless people in their own right. Many would look at the paycheck my mother would bring home from her...

"Poor Rich" by Jean Blasiar Released

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, July 17, 2010, In : Just Released 
Writing is like eating to me.  It’s something I have to do, love to do, crave yet sometimes writhe against. 

I think I will write.  I clear my desk, turn off my cell, lock the door and sit at my computer.  After ten minutes, nothing.  An hour, still nothing.  But totally unprepared, in church, in a movie, trying to sleep, trying to pay attention to a luncheon friend, then a word, a phrase, a way out of a corner I wrote myself into back at my computer comes spewing like oil in the gulf.  I r...
