A 30-minute Skype chat with the incomparable Meredith Barnes, professional godsend at Fineprint Literary Management about whatever you want - publishing, technology, books, anything.
FinePrint Literary Management has been unable to rid themselves of Meredith since her arrival in January 2010. Parties have reached a gentlemanly agreement wherein it is specified, among other things, that Meredith sit as far away from the front door as possible. As it would happen, this is part of Janet Reid's agreement as well.
Meredith is not acquiring clients. She reads good writing, both fiction and non, and hawks the outstanding on Janet. Especially appealing are thrillers with worldwide stakes, quirky literary fiction, and characters that she wishes were real. Narrative nonfiction with a new story to tell and the requisite platform (yeah, yeah) is always welcome.
Convinced that technology is vital to the future of publishing, but also recognizing that it is scary and has sharp teeth, Meredith started La Vie en Prose to provide some perspective on the matter.
Bidding is open until March 26th, 12PM EDT.
