AUTHORS’ ENDORSEMENTS: ON PUBLISHING WITH WMP


Authors have opinions about the editors they work with. These comments can give us important information about the way the actual preparation of a text for publication operates. Here are some individual comments as endorsements by WMP authors, some of whom have years of experience in their fields and a long history of publishing their writings.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mitchell Ginsberg in the process of editing my book Are You Getting Enlightened Or Losing Your Mind? With his backgrounds in linguistics, Buddhist mindfulness, psychology, book writing, and publishing, he brings a wide array of experience to editing. Mitchell was an excellent editor, easy to work with, creative, open-minded, and able to offer differing opinions in a helpful way that made it easy to incorporate, agree, or disagree in the true spirit of inquiry. I highly recommend him to other authors.

Addendum: I was quite fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Mitchell Ginsberg as publisher and editor at Wisdom Moon Publishing. When we first met and shared what each of us does, he explained that he’s a psychologist (and author), as well as a linguist. He is also very intelligent. After an experience with a major New York City publisher for my book Are You Getting Enlightened Or Losing Your Mind?, I was happy to find a publisher in which I would have easy access to the publisher. We had many friendly disagreements about a variety of literary issues: content and grammar. I was really shocked at the depth of Ginsberg’s knowledge of Sanskrit. My book had its earliest roots in Vedic thought, so there were many Sanskrit words in the book...and Ginsberg had a good understanding of every Sanskrit word I used. We had a few friendly disagreements, the kind of disagreement in which having different opinions is something to be desired. Throughout the process Ginsberg was always open to dialogue and discuss about every aspect of publishing...from the writing and editing of the book to its final stages and printing. I highly recommend Mitchell Ginsberg. If you’re an author, check out his website for Wisdom Moon Publishing. If my next book falls within categories that WMP works with, I will definitely be contacting Ginsberg.

I had already hired my own editor before I submitted my text to Wisdom Moon Publishing. However, Mitchell’s ability to probe beyond what was on the page and help me to reveal what was in my heart during the events that unfolded in my memoir really took the book to another level.

Mitchell, the Editor-in-Chief of Wisdom Moon Publishing, was the editor of my book, Contact: The Tale of Human Longing for Fulfilling Communication . My collaboration with him was an excellent experience. He has done a tremendous job as a very meticulous, knowledgeable, and academically-oriented literary reviser. Highly recommended!"

In closing here, let me add that as editor at Wisdom Moon Publishing, I bring to my work here my decades of practice in the careful reading of texts, with a sense of grammar, word usage, flow of text, and other editorial matters. I also (none the less) appreciate that even with my own editorial experience, in texts I have written I can miss passages that are poorly written or that otherwise call out for improvement. To overcome this perhaps universal limitation, I regularly have colleagues and associates review the manuscripts I am interested in publishing. This includes the encyclopedic The Inner Palace, some 900 pdf pages long, which was comprehensively reviewed in its entirety by a colleague of mine. These comments are to encourage authors who desire a well-written and easily read, coherent text, to make use of one or more other people to review any text before publishing it.

Mitchell Ginsberg, Ph.D., author of Calm, Clear, and Loving, Mindful Raft over Troubled Waters, and other works.
