Submitted form w/query letter 8/8/22. 108K Historical. Patience is a virtue with these folks. Wait, wait.
I'm not crazy about their bios on the website and no MSWL info that I saw. Even looked at their Twitter and didn't find much there, either. Hard to know who to submit.

If I'm being honest, the website and form felt a little dusty and old- I queried anyway, but I wouldn't it be easier and better for submissions to be made through QM?

Alice Tasman's focus is literary and commercial fiction, and she is always on the lookout for debut writers. She is especially interested in novels—whether adult, young adult, or middle grade—that combine excellent writing, voice, and characters with a great plot. She is also drawn to smart, off-beat non-fiction, particularly works of narrative non-fiction on biography, music, or pop-culture.
