Please welcome, publicist Meredith Barnes of Soho Press!
Meredith Barnes is a Digital Marketing/Publicity maven for Soho Press, specifically their Young Adult (coming 2013) and Literary Fiction lines, as well as a habitual defector (ex-Texan, ex-lit agent). She specializes in comprehensive media campaigns, especially focusing on viral (read: free) marketing and author platform consultation and development. Always a bit of a nomad, her reading tastes range from literary fiction to young adult to science fiction to pizza cookbooks—and she’s helped sell all of these at one point or another. Above all, Meredith believes empowered, involved authors are key to creating custom campaigns for each and every book.
She keeps a blog aimed at making authors empowered and involved at merbarnes.blogspot.com and is also on Twitter @Mer_Barnes.
Soho Press is an independent book publisher based in New York City since 1986, publishing literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and international crime fiction.
