An Editor for Coleridge


May 16, 2016 by Laird

As promised the other day, I have a follow-up to the Coleridge deal announcement wherein I brag about my book editor.

When it comes to publishing, on the positive end of the spectrum there’s good fortune and then there’s outrageously good fortune. Sara Minnich is a senior editor at G.P. Putnam’s Sons (home of Robert B. Parker’s immortal Spenser) and she’s the one who acquired my manuscript.

Here’s a bit from her bio:

Sara Minnich joined Putnam in 2008 as the assistant to Neil Nyren, and in 2016 was promoted to Senior Editor. Her fiction acquisitions include Bull Mountain by Brian Panowich, The Drifter by Nicholas Petrie, and The Second Life of Nick Mason by award-winning, bestselling author Steve Hamilton.  In non-fiction, she’s worked on memoirs such as They Left Us Everything by Plum Johnson and The Good Shufu by Tracy Slater.  Among her other acclaimed authors are #1 New York Times-bestseller Stuart Woods and New York Times-bestseller Felix Francis…

 Bull Mountain? The Drifter? Where All Light Tends to Go? As an author, all you can do is smile when somebody who has shepherded books like these takes on your case.
She’s a heavy hitter and her projects speak volumes to just how safe my novels are in her hands.

    Congratulations, Laird. I’ve had all three of these books on my radar. Guess it’s time to pull the trigger and get those stories in my head.

  2. Damn Laird, you have been busy! Will these novels be full-on traditional noir?

  3. Laird says:

    Full on traditional. Closer to the Ellroy, Dickey, Pollack end of the spectrum.

  4. Michael Parker says:

    Congratulations. BTW, The Second Life of Nick Mason is also one hell of a good book too.
