query sent 4/18/22
after 8 weeks, the site advises to send again because they do respond to queries in that time frame.
I re-queried on 6/17/22 (60 days)

Response 6/21/22:
I did respond to this submission with a pass – looks like that must’ve gone astray in the email corridors of the world. I’m attaching my note of 6/1, well within our eight-week guidelines period.
Thanks, and all best with your work,

(I never did receive that email and her attachment turned out to be 42 pages of code. I had to open my original email as it was a part of her reply, scroll all the way to the bottom of my query to find her note, which read:

Thanks so much for the look at your materials, and for accepting a brief response.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t drawn in to the story as I want to be to pursue a project further.
As I’m sure you’ll understand, the volume of submissions I receive makes it impossible to correspond with everyone personally. I wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work, and I thank you, once again, for the opportunity to consider it.)

As always, I appreciate a response. Make sure you check in on queries where you know you should get a reply.
