Justin Wells - Jr. Literary Agent
Justin is currently OPEN to queries.
Justin started his journey six years ago when he started his blog which grew far beyond what he had originally thought it ever would. If you had asked him then, he would have never imagined just how much his journey would impact his future. Being a literary agent is something that Justin has fallen in love with, and is eager to continue for years to come.
Justin holds a B.S. in Mass Communications with a focus in Public Relations. He loves being able to utilize his skills in public relations to assist the agency, and his own clients through his work as a literary agent.
Justin loves every aspect of being a literary agent. He loves being able to do all he can to help writers. Be it writers he speaks to over social media, conferences, or other sources. The ability to help writers hone their craft is one of the most rewarding aspects of being an agent for him. He loves helping his amazing clients, along with the many other writers he comes into contact with through other means.
When it comes to reading, he is very open. His main focus is young adult, middle grade, and new adult, though he has been known to branch out and explore other books that catch his eye.
Favorite Authors: (only some)
These are just a handful of his favorite authors! Most of which are YA authors. There are many more that he loves, but it would take forever for him to go through them all.
Outside of both work and college, Justin spends most of his free time reading. It is one of those things he can never escape. He gets to have a lot of fun reading for work, and he can still have a lot of fun reading outside of work too. He is always looking for new book recommendations, so if you ever run into him on social media feel free to share some of your favorite books with him!
Young Adult: Historical Fiction, Contemporary, Horror
Adult: Historical Fiction, Romance (Historical)
