New York, NY 10001

Meredith Barnes is an associate agent at Lowenstein Associates as well as Digital Strategist and Subsidiary Rights Manager. She is building her list, and is especially interested in blog-to-book projects and projects dealing with alternative lifestyles and social issues. If your topic could have been ripped from a Vulture headline, it’s probably for her. She runs a blog and she also tweets.

She is seeking: a wide range of engaging fiction for all ages, including literary fiction, women’s fiction, thrillers and crime. She is open to science fiction and fantasy that has something new to offer the genres. Ender's Game is her favorite book, so we’ll leave it at that. She does not represent early readers or children’s picture books.

For nonfiction, she is extremely interested in health, fitness, and spirituality nonfiction with a strong author platform and online presence. For both nonfiction and fiction, Meredith considers more than just the print possibilities. Projects that lend themselves to apps, enhanced ebooks, and other fresh ways to tell stories are especially appealing.

Query Meredith at:
For fiction, send a one-page query letter, along with the first 10 pages pasted in the body of the message.
For nonfiction, send a query letter and table of contents pasted in the body of your e-mail. Be sure to detail your platform and link me to any sites you want me to see (Twitter, Facebook, website, blog). If you have a proposal ready, paste that into the body of the e-mail, too.
Put the word QUERY and the title of your project in the subject field of your e-mail. Do not send attachments.
