Author Interview – George Cappannelli

7:30 AM Posted by James Noel , No comments

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Yes, both non-fiction and fiction

Have you started another book yet? Yes, I am at work on two non-fiction books and I am completing the third in a trilogy of novels about art, love, and transformation that I have worked on for 12 years and that I now believe is ready.

Are you reading any interesting books at the moment? I am reading Entering The Shift Age by David Houle and Spiritual Partnership by Gary Zukav

Do you have any advice for writers? Live a lot with courage and honesty and write as often and as much as you can.  I think Henry Miller was right when he said that one needs to write a few million words before one begins to get to the real heart of it.

Do you have any specific last thoughts that you want to say to your reader? Write to share, to contribute, to learn and evolve your craft.  Forget about all of the outside carrots.  Forget about fame or fortune.  Write, as a wise man I once knew said about the search for consciousness, “as a drowning man seeking air.”   Write, guided at least as much, by your heart as your head.  Write as if each word was the last and defining word by which you will be known.

When you wish to end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have? I do not ever want to stop writing.  Writing – which is an essential form of communication, is a natural part of my life.   It gives me the opportunity to come to know myself and the world around me better.  Like breathing, it enables me.

Do Not Go Quietly is an extraordinary and important book for all Gen Xers (40 to 45), baby boomers (46 to 64), and elders (65 and older). It is also valuable for those under 40 who want to better understand and assist their parents, older friends, and relatives.

Discover how to harvest the fruits of our past and turn them into gold we can invest in the present and future. Learn how to live with greater mindfulness in each moment so that we can more fully celebrate our lives, live our dreams, and heal any wounds that may encumber us. See how to chart a more harmonious, joyful, and successful course so that we’ll be able to say with pride, “We have run the course to the best of our abilities, and we will leave behind a legacy of genuine value.”
