Website currently lists an email to submit to, not an online form.

Thanks @swatithegeek! I already submitted by email so it's probably too late/rude to then resubmit via the form. ;_;

@moonklutz, the online form is linked to in her details on QT ("Main") as well as on her Twitter bio. She responds to every form query, but will only respond to email queries if she's interested, so I'd recommend going with the form query if you want closure, haha. :)

Adult Fantasy w/ LGBTQIA characters 93k

She said she absolutely loved the story and devoured it in three days. I even saw a tweet she posted about it. We have a phone call scheduled for the 23rd of August, to discuss my work further. Hoping all goes well and we have the same vision for my career. I'm still in shock. I've been revising and querying this story for a year now, and I have no publishing or writing credits to my name whatsoever. I basically skip the bio section of the query letter altogether. Since Jessica lists fantasy & LGBTQIA on her wish list, I thought it was worth a try - I had no idea she'd love it. So keep querying. You never know who will fall in love with your work.

Phone call was amazing. She's professional and has a great vision for my book. Can't wait to work with her.

Thanks karenleespree.

Just so everyone else knows, the link she is referring to is for her QueryManager form. Which is also the link provided here (on her “Main” tab.) Though it may be in a slightly different format, it leads to the same place.

This is pinned to her Twitter page: "authors: I'm still getting a lot of submissions to InkWell's shared submission email. While I do look there for queries, I only respond to emailed queries if I'm interested in reading more. If you'd like a definitive response, please use the queryme link in my bio!"

I sent an email and for the life of me, I cannot find the queryme link in her bio. Found it! the queryme link is in her twitter bio.
