Had a several email long exchange with Ms. Lipton which I found extremely helpful. In the end there was no offer and we decided it was best if I continued to pursue self publishing. So ends my two year long journey of querying.

After 220+ plus queries this was the only agent to respond with more than a simple form letter.

Dear Kris,
I'm sorry, but your project does not sound like a fit for me at this time, and so I will have to pass. I understand that you have put significant work into this submission and I'm sorry that the volume of queries I receive doesn't enable me to respond personally to each author. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.
Sincerely,

Rejection: 8/4/22

Gave some helpful advice on why she decided to pass, but especially appreciated the following: "These are not criticisms of your work, but rather my completely subjective reasons for passing. I only offer notes because I know querying can be a frustratingly silent process."
