Just a minor improvement suggestion. You mention that you use a Query List to get the new (copy) item's id. If all is well the Create List Item action has an option to Output as ID into a workflow variable.....

So please add you voice as well. Maybe it will be added some time soon
No worries on being on-prem. In that case, you can create the child workflow as a UDA instead. Jean-Pierre Huls' recommendation around outputting the Item ID from the create Item action would be helpful in any scenario where you're wanting to perform these steps.
