Meredith Barnes is the Senior Publicity Manager for Soho Press, 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.

Soho Press is an independent book publisher based in New York City since 1986, publishing literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and international crime fiction.
