Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Stanislaw Kapuscinski, (aka Stan I.S. Law) an architect, sculptor and prolific writer, was educated in Poland and England. A refugee from Poland at 13, then at 33, having overcome numerous difficulties, he began his search for the secret of life. Now, he is a successful writer, happily married for 35 years, with an assured future.
His special interests cover a broad spectrum of arts, sciences and philosophy. At times he seeks inspiration in the Peruvian Andes or solitude under sail. His books (articles, short stories, poetry) attest to his particular passion for the scope and the development of Human Potential. He authored more than 40 books, 20 of them, novels.
His non-fiction explores Ancient Myths, Biblical Symbolism, Immortality and the mystery of Visualization. Three volumes of Essays (Beyond Religion) investigate the Nature of Being. Generally, if you suspect you are more than flesh and bones, read Stan Law. If you want to be sure, read Stanislaw Kapuscinski.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest books are 4 trilogies, offering continuity of novels previously published as individual volumes.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
No. I am retired and thus can write up to 10 hours/day. I do what gives me the greatest pleasure: writing.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
When young, I read all the books I could find dealing with detectives. When older, I went through all the science fiction I could find. Then I moved through philosophy, poetry (Shakespeare), finally scriptures of various religions.
What are you working on now?
Lately, I am writing blogs which are arranged in 6 volumes, entitled VICIOUS CIRCLES. They are inspired by Dalai Lama, and deal, principally, with the search for Secular Ethics.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am terribly bad at promotion. My wife says that I am by far the most famous, completely unknown writer. I think she’s right. I’m on FB, twitter, and that practically all.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t write until you have something to say. If you do, you’ll just repeat what has already been said. Originality is obligatory for a writer.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
Dozens of magazines on Astronomy a friend had given me.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Finding someone who will take over promotion and marketing to free me to keep writing. I’m offering 50% of profit.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Bible (nothing to do with religion, just wisdom), 3 or 4 of my own books.
