Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Tina Wainscott of The Seymour Agency

Screen Shot 2017-11-11 at 3.30.05 PM.pngTina Wainscott is a literary agent with The Seymour Agency.

Tina is the USA Today bestselling author of over thirty novels with romantic thrills and suspenseful chills. She’s been published with houses such as St. Martin’s Press, Harper Collins, Hachette, and Random House since 1995, so she understands the business from the author’s perspective. As an agent, she’s looking for self-help nonfiction that inspires people to reach for their best and overcome life’s challenges.

“I’m looking to work with a select few authors who have an idea that fits into self-help/ personal transformation/spiritual growth but also has that special something to stand out in a crowded market. If you have a provocative idea, a grasp on your platform, and a fabulous title and hook, I’d love to see it! Please limit queries to self-help/nonfiction books. No fiction, memoirs (unless it specifically aims to use your life/experience as a teaching tool), poetry, Christian/religious books, or children’s books.”
