Got a reply. She never received the manuscript and asked me to upload it again.
Re-uploaded. Found that it didn't upload the first time. PSA: Make sure to verify the file uploads.

Update 12/14/23 - No response yet to the full request. Expected, due to the holidays!
Rejection: 1/11/24

Thank you for considering The Seymour Agency - and me - to represent you and your work. I apologize for the time it took me to review your work. Recently, there have been some unexpected shifts at the agency (we had an agent leave), and my time management has been challenged with helping handle those authors, and since I need to be very selective in how I bring on new authors at this time, I’m not the right agent to represent this, so I’m passing. This is not a reflection of your work or your potential. I wish you the best with your endeavors and hope to see this on shelves one day where I can remember being given the opportunity to read your work before the book releases. Thank you again for the chance to review your materials.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
