Full Request: 5/5--sent same day
Nudge: 7/6--no response to nudge
Offer from another agent: 11/23--Sent email about other offer; No response

Aside from the initial request, I never heard a single word from this agent. Rather disappointing, but everything happens for a reason, I suppose!

I had saved this note from the website:
We make a conscious effort to reply to every query we receive. If you do not receive a request for additional materials within three weeks, you should assume that we are not interested in that particular project.

But I did finally get a response WAY LATER than three weeks. So, take that general website rate with a grain of salt. I appreciate the actual response.

Queried 5/4/2022....Rejected 6/20/2022 with slightly personalized rejection:
Thank you so much for submitting [novel name] to me and your interest in The Seymour Agency. Unfortunately this is a pass for me, the word count is too short. Typically fiction novels run in the 70k-100k range. Please don't be discouraged, just because it is a pass from me, by no means implies that another agent will feel the same.

I wish you the best on your publishing endeavors and thank you again for the opportunity to consider.

My word count is 53,000....I've seen different requirements on word count for young adult...I've seen anywhere from 50,000 to 90,000. I thought 70,000 to 100,000 word count was for adult fiction. I wish I could reply back to her and tell her I'm trying to add more to it.

Unfortunately I did not fall in love with this project as much I had hoped to in order to take it on in such a saturated market.
