Thriller novelist Lisa Gardner will publish her next three novels at Penguin’s Dutton division, leaving her old home at Random House.
Her next novel will come out in winter 2012, a novel with the tentative title, Catch Me. Meg Ruley from the Jane Rotrosen Agency negotiated the deal with executive editor Ben Sevier. Mass market president Leslie Gelbman NAL publisher Kara Welsh will handle the paperback release. Last year we wrote about Gardner’s three-year revision.
Tart had this statement, in the release: “Few authors’ sales are growing like Lisa Gardner’s, and I am thrilled to help her grow even more. Dutton’s publicity and marketing under the direction of Christine Ball brings a great deal of sophistication to positioning and publishing suspense thrillers, and we look forward to the challenge of introducing Lisa’s books to the widest possible readership.”
