"Thank you so much for the opportunity to read and consider [title]. I’m sorry to say that I'm going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it, as I am not the best fit for sci-fi.

However, I appreciate you sharing your work with me, as the querying process can be quite a challenge. I wish you the very best in finding a good home for it.

@mlmarr312: I submitted and then followed up a week later. She said they have an automated confirmation email for their main inbox, so she forgets to reply to submissions like that once an email chain is going. So you can follow up if you want to be safe, but chances are she got it!

Anyone else not receiving the auto-reply confirmation when they submit? It makes me nervous that I haven’t gotten one.
