Anyone know how to let her know you are withdrawing your query? I could not find anything, so replied to my query message but received the auto response.

Form rejection.

Thank you for querying Rainbow Nerds Literary. I have reviewed your submission, and unfortunately, I don't feel that I'm the best agent to represent your manuscript. Please continue to query other agents to find the right person to champion your work.

Received a rejection from Ms. Vankirk on 3/15 because she wasn't connecting with the plot But, she did say she liked my writing, and asked if I had any other completed manuscripts. I wish! Though, I did ask her if she'd be interested in the current manuscript she rejected after a major rewrite to work on the plot with an editor. Fingers crossed that she will be. Still waiting to see if she'll reply back to my email! I would love to work with her!

Revised my previous YA LGBT Fantasy.
Sent query on 7/16.
Request for partial 7/16 (Sent on 7/16)
Request for full 7/17 (Sent on 7/17)
Fingers crossed again, but I won't get my hopes up. Would still love to work with her! I admire her passion for diversity so much!
Nudged on 8/10 with offer of rep and a deadline of 8/17
8/17: Kind step aside

--Unfortunately, I didn't connect with the story as much as I'd hope, so I'm going to pass. I wish you the best in your publishing career.
