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

Screen Shot 2020-06-29 at 10.37.45 AM.pngTina Wainscott is a literary agent with The Seymour Agency.

Tina is the USA Today bestselling author of over 30 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.

A Note from Tina:

“As I considered becoming an agent with this amazing agency, I knew what my area of interest would be as soon as Nicole mentioned ‘self-help’ as one of the categories on which they wanted to focus. Though I continue to write fiction, I am also invested in my own soul journey.

“I love the feeling of reading a book that helps me transform, to see the world through a new perspective and its challenges in a new light. The idea of helping writers share their vision with others when it comes from their heart is thrilling!

“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 have 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! Diversity is welcome!

“Please limit queries to self-help/non-fiction books. No memoirs (unless it specifically aims to use your life/experience as a teaching tool or you are someone of note), poetry, or children’s books, and please, no fiction. Even spiritual fiction.”
