Meet Patrick Price
I'm a hands-on book editor, a writer, and a self-professed pop culture junkie with a unique combination of significant New York trade publishing experience, resulting in 100+ weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list (9 weeks at #1).
My sensibility is eclectic and unabashedly commercial, including both Adult and Young Adult fiction and Adult prescriptive and narrative nonfiction in the categories of memoir, relationships, self-help, modern parenting, lifestyle, health, business, LGBTQ, humor. . . and whatever I find refreshingly irresistible.
At Simon & Schuster's pop culture imprint, Simon Spotlight Entertainment (SSE) turned Gallery Books, I acquired and edited such bestselling titles as the international phenomenon HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU, Tori Spelling's memoir STORI TELLING (and all four of her subsequent bestsellers), perennial "new mommy" favorite, SIPPY CUPS ARE NOT FOR CHARDONNAY by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, and Tim Gunn's GUNN'S GOLDEN RULES. Most recently, I was Editorial Director at YA imprint Simon Pulse, working with such notable authors as Sarah Ockler, Lauren Barnholdt, Tom Leveen, Terra Elan McVoy, S. E. Green, and Ann Stampler.
My unique background and skill set--I've worked for two of the "Big Five" publishers (Simon & Schuster and Random House), a leading literary agency (now ICM Partners), and been thrice published--offer insightful and empathetic guidance from developed concept to demystified publication. Whether working with a first-time author or a seasoned pro, I give each project my thoughtful, undivided attention.
