“Being new to the book world, Greg [Behrendt] and I didn’t know what to expect when we began the process of writing He’s Just Not That Into You. But working with Patrick could not have been a more positive experience. His strong vision, patience, and gentle touch guided us through the process perfectly. We are very, very lucky to have him on our side!”

Liz Tuccillo, coauthor of He’s Just Not That Into You

“Patrick’s editing style is a writer’s dream. He’s able to cut through the chaos with common sense, and he’s at once calming and inspiring, and, most important, able to make you think his ideas for improvement are your own. And if he’d edited this, believe me it would be a much better quote.”

Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, author of Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay, Naptime Is the New Happy Hour, and It’s Not Me, It’s You

“Many thanks to my editor, Patrick Price, who has nothing in common with me and yet still laughs at my dick jokes. I feel like he looked directly into my heart and understood me immediately. I am forever indebted to the patience he showed in dealing with such a novice.”

Heather B. Armstrong, author of It Sucked and then I Cried and creator of

“Patrick Price at Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books possessed such contagious enthusiasm for the book that I was instantly smitten with the imprint.”

Tim Gunn, author of Gunn’s Golden Rules

“Patrick Price, editor to the stars, for your razor-sharp scalpel of a sense of just want readers want to read.”

Star Jones, author of Satan’s Sisters

“An extra special shout out to my most awesome editor Patrick Price. Not only did he take a chance on a first-time author, he is the type of development person that writers hope for. One that helps the artist find his voice, and then makes it louder.”

Chris Mancini, author of Pacify Me: A Handbook for the Freaked-Out New Dad

“To say that Patrick Price is an exceptionally talented editor is to mealy-mouth him with the routine flattery that gets handed to hundreds of lesser editors; to say that he is an insightful and intuitive reader is to understate the matter; to say he is always available to his writers—no matter how overburdened his schedule—is almost to damn him with faint praise. It is because Patrick bears such oversized portions of all of these qualities, along with a commitment to the integrity of the book that almost surpassed mine as the author, that working with him has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my writing career.”

Gwen Cooper, author of Homer’s Odyssey and Diary of a South Beach Party Girl

“Patrick Price (or as we like to call him Patrick Priceless), our absolutely fabulous editor and most dedicated supporter. We’re so freakin’ thankful we found you. We couldn’t have done it without you.”

Howard J. Morris and Jenny Lee, authors of Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid

“Thank you so much for all your hard work! Love love love the outcome!”

Lance Bass, author of Out of Sync

“Patrick is uncannily perceptive, poetic, and wise. Each editorial remark held a volume of meaning, and his notes were always on point.”

Dr. Bethany Marshall, author of Deal Breakers

“Patrick Price seems to own a blue pencil with some serious magic in it.”

Jack Mauro, author of M4M

“Are there better editors than you anywhere on earth? I doubt it. You have been so supportive, so smart, and so fun throughout this whole experience.”

Ada Calhoun, founding editor-in-chief of and author of Instinctive Parenting

“And finally, to my phenomenally talented editor, Patrick Price, who is not a mother (or even my gender), but who still unstintingly embraced my philosophy. Thank you for honing my words into something mothers everywhere will understand. You are an honorary good-enough mother.”

René Syler, former The Early Show anchor and author of Good-Enough Mother
