Bobbie Lippman, author of "Good Grief"

Bobbie Lippman, author of “Good Grief”

If you are thinking of writing a book, Carla Perry, her Dancing Moon Press and talented team is the way to go. As a short-sprint human-interest columnist, I never intended to put my writings into a book – but demands from my readers convinced me to call Carla Perry who very quickly changed my life. […]


"Guerrilla Priest" by Stephen Griffiths

Stephen Griffiths, author of “Guerrilla Priest: An American Family in World War II Philippines”

Yesterday a friend asked me if I liked my new book, Guerrilla Priest. I replied yes. “Good,” my friend said. “That means your readers will love it.” And they seem to! Much of this is due, of course, to Carla Perry and her team who helped me produce a book that reads well and looks terrific. […]


James Fleming, author of "Hip Hop Aesop"

James Fleming, author of “Hip Hop Aesop”

Don’t try this at home. Publishing your book, that is. It takes a pro in this endeavor to guide you through the sort of maze you never would have dreamed of. I was lucky enough to be directed to such a pro in Carla Perry. Not only does she have the scope and depth of […]

Margaret Gish Miller, author of “Blood Moon Weather”

After years and years of trying to put together a poetry collection, a friend urged me to contact Carla Perry for possible publication with Dancing Moon Press. I’m glad I did. Never did I imagine the compassion and respect she would bestow on my work. Mid-point in the process, I felt I couldn’t continue, but […]


Johnny Bargain, author of "A Collection of Bummer Summers"

Johnny Bargain, author of “A Collection of Bummer Summers”

Wow, what an adventure! My book, “A Collection of Bummer Summers,” turned out far better than I ever imagined was possible. Carla Perry’s encouragement to re-imagine my old Staten Island neighborhood and record the stories that percolated in my head led to months of talking into a tape recorder. Carla transcribed the recordings, then organized […]


Gus Willemin, author of “Catch & Release”

It is very comforting to know I have Dancing Moon Press on my team. As an editor, Carla Perry makes sure that my work is presented in the best possible light and professionally represented. The reports I’ve received from readers are unanimous in the praise and surprise shown for what appears to be all my efforts. […]


Verlena Orr, author of “The Lyric Unveiled”

I continue to return to Dancing Moon Press and Carla Perry… Carla has been gifted with extreme patience and offers excellent comments and suggestions. No other press would work with me. I’m not good at the Internet or much of anything at the computer and Carla has been outstanding in making allowances, even using snail […]
