We interviewed literary agent Eugenie Furniss, who worked for WME for 15 years before setting up Furniss Lawton for the James Grant Group in 2012. She told us about her favourite aspects of Frankfurt Book Fair, self-publishing and what’s on her reading list. She has been shortlisted twice The Bookseller’s Literary Agent of the Year Award.
I wasn’t able to get to Contec at the Frankfurt Book Fair this year, so I missed the discussion Where Would You Place Your Bet, looking into a crystal ball about the future of publishing. But I’ve read the Schilling report, created after consultations with publishers around the world which asked the question “How would they go about it if they had to start all over?”
