"While there is a lot to appreciate here, I don't have the vision needed to champion the project to publication. Regretfully, I must pass.

I'm sorry to not have better news but appreciate the chance to read and I wish you all the best on your future queries.
Kind regards,"

@908mom, do you have the email confirmation via QM for your submission to Lori? If so, follow the link to your query and scroll down; you may see the option there to sign in and track your query via QT.
I just had this happen with a query I thought I'd submitted while I was signed in. I took the steps above and now I do see my query in that agent's timeline.
