@SarahKam @hwkwrites -- I am in the same boat (I apparently emailed my submission ~one week before she switched to the form submission format) -- did you ever hear back? Debating whether to resubmit via the new system...

Very polite in her rejection email.
Responding back right away. In a little less than a day.

Thank you for sending me your query. As I am not sure your project is the right fit for my list at this time, I will regretfully have to pass. Thank you for considering me, and I wish you the best of luck with your future queries.

ER: 9-18-21 - Form rejection. But I suppose at least she responded. I’ve been ghosted so many times I’ve lost count.
