Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Jessie Stover of The Seymour Agency

Screen Shot 2018-08-18 at 5.13.16 PM.pngJessie Stover is a literary agent with The Seymour Agency.

Jessie is constantly on the lookout for a fresh voice, strong pacing, detailed world building, and unique main characters. She is interested in acquiring YA and New Adult fantasy, as well as contemporary romance, romantic suspense, romantic comedy, a brain twister (think Inception or “Black Mirror”), and is a sucker for military novels, especially anything to do with long separations or reunions. Jessie is not interested in erotica or heavy fact laden historical romances, but will be on board if it’s anything like Poldark.

Ever since Jessie was a little girl she was obsessed with stories. She acted out her favorite movies with friends, wrote her own epics in high school, and loved talking shop with any author she could get her hands on. As an honors graduate from Taylor University, with a degree in Professional Writing, Jessie’s eyes were opened to the dream job while learning about literary agents in college.

As the wife of an Active Duty Airman and slave to her own creative mind, Jessie’s days are full of variety, knitting, and tea drinking.
