The Submissions page on the Upstart Crow page says "If your submission is received by our system, an automated response will be emailed to you." I waited 5 hrs for a response that never came, so I sent it in again. Still no response over 24 h later. Let's see if their general 'contact' email is up to the task...

After 2 more tries from that email address two days later, I sent the query from another email address and got an autoreply a few minutes later. Very odd, but at least she has it now, even if I'm not at the 'front of the line' like I was when I sent it less than an hour after she was open for queries.

@Gull8855 I received an auto response from Danielle's submission e-mail- same as the address listed on her profile here. Maybe double check everything just in case (though I'm sure you have already!).
