Make Books Travel Podcast

April 2020

I’d been playing with the idea of starting a podcast for a while. Then COVID-19 happened. I had to cut a 5-week business trip to Europe short after only 1 week of meetings, and returned to California.

Fast forward a few weeks, and the world had become a different place. Almost the entire (international publishing) world had to adapt to working from home, whereas 2 Seas Agency has had a remote set-up practically since its beginnings.

During the many virtual meetings I had the weeks following the start of the pandemic to make up for the hundreds of in-person meetings I was supposed to have at the London Book Fair and elsewhere in Europe, I was asked more than once if I had any tips to share.

This led to the first podcast episode, The Virtual Literary Agency: An Interview with Chrysothemis Armefti, published on April 17, 2020.
