@bostonwriter and NatashaGraceAnn
There was a little line at the bottom of the form when I submitted that said "Thanks for submitting" when the form emptied. Easily overlooked.

@NatashaGraceAnn Same thing happened to me. I'm assuming it went through?

Did anybody receive a "received" confirmation after submitting via the form on her website? The form just blinked to empty when I clicked send, and I'm worried it didn't actually go through.

I just noticed that her website (nextlevellit.com) states she does not accept email queries. I'd queried her via email on 11/17/21 based on the Publishers Marketplace info. Requerying using the website submissions form now.

Nicest rejection I’ve ever received. Pretty personalized I think. Seems like a kind lady.
