Please join me in offering a great big Absolute Write welcome to Agent Kathleen Ortiz, who has graciously agreed to drop in and answer your questions for a Summer Spree of Agent information!

Kathleen is an agent with Lowenstein Associates, who've helpfully posted a bio from which to cut-n-paste:
Kathleen is currently Associate Agent and Foreign Rights Manager at Lowenstein Associates. She is seeking children's books (chapter, middle grade, and young adult) and young adult non-fiction. While Kathleen enjoys everything from light-hearted and humorous to dark and edgy, she'd love to find an amazing romance from a male point of view or a steampunk with fantastic world building.

Lowenstein Associates believes with the continued demand for online marketing in publishing, a strong online platform is essential for today's authors. Kathleen uses her background in interactive media design to assist Lowenstein Associatesí clients with branding themselves.

Thank you so very much, Kathleen! And with that, we'll open the floodgates for everyone's questions.
