The following are just a few of the projects I have worked on. I have experience working with both fiction and nonfiction, but my passion lies with fiction editing, particularly genre fiction.

The Journey Within: Exploring the Path of Bhakti

*New York Times Best Seller*

“Radhanath Swami has conveyed The Divine Light through his writing with the gentle and seductive effortlessness that he does in person. This book is a joyful way to move closer to the truth within you”
— RUSSELL BRAND

“Radhanath’s teaching here is highly accessible and a delight to read; newcomers will feel welcome to bhakti and intrigued by his conviction and compassion.”
— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

 

Mile 46: Face to Face in Maasailand

“With words of remarkable precision, and images of stunning clarity and beauty—qualities that are all the more striking for the artist in her youth—Joni Binder documents her year among the Maasai in the late 1980s. What makes Mile 46 such a revelation is the depth of its empathy, the calm intelligence and mature awareness that saturates every image. Neither a mere travelogue nor a wide-eyed record of faraway experience, the book is, instead, a brilliant and indelible work of art.”
—MATTHEW SPECKTOR, author and a founding editor of the Los Angeles Review of Books

 

Shadows of the Sun Dynasty: An Illustrated Series Based on the Ramayana (Sita’s Fire Trilogy)

“The intrigue and mystery starts with the opening line—never have I been pulled so quickly into a book through a few simple yet tantalizing words. The art and magic unfold page after page through story and image alike. From injustice and savagery to heroism and beautiful princesses, the unique style of Vrinda Sheth’s writing captivates the heart and mind, drawing one deeper into the burning intricacies of Sita’s Fire.”
— BRAJA SORENSEN, author of Lost & Found in India, Mad & Divine, and India & Beyond

 

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret

Cowspiracy vividly exposes the single largest contributing factor to our demise and that of other species, which is the consumption of animals and the supportive animal agricultural systems, and then provides a pathway toward a healthier, more peaceful and just planet by re-connecting us to the stark realities of food choice and sustainability, urging all of us to act, and to do so now.”
—DR. RICHARD A. OPPENLANDER, researcher, consultant, and author of the award-winning Food Choice and Sustainability and Comfortably Unaware

 

The Singing Guru: Legends and Adventures of Guru Nanak, the First Sikh

“Kamla Kapur has created a Sikh parallel of Homer’s Odyssey in the re-imagining of its founder’s spiritual journey, cleverly recounted in the voice of an impish acolyte. As with that work, the prose melts into melifluous poetry, music to the soul. In company with the Sikh spiritual leader, Guru Nanak, we travel from magical place to magical place throughout India and are reminded again and again of what values should inform our life. You wait until the saga is over to exhale and still wish there were more. A ripping read.”
—THOMAS HOOVER, author of Zen Culture and The Moghul

 

Swami in a Strange Land: How Krishna Came to the West

“A beautifully written, enthralling, and scrupulously researched book about an extraordinary personality. Full of detail and spiritual resonance. A must read for those who know nothing about the founder and preceptor of the Hare Krishna movement, and all those who think they do.”
—ALFRED B. FORD, trustee, Ford Family Foundation

 

Yogasana: The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses

“In the sacred Himalayan hills of Rishikesh, on the banks of Mother Ganga, Yogrishi Vishvketu has masterfully excelled in the practice and teaching of yogasana. He is a gracious, kind, and open-hearted spiritual seeker—and a dear friend. I pray that Krishna may shower auspicious blessings upon him.”
—RADHANATH SWAMI, New York Times Best Selling Author
