I might get as much as $5K on the trade-in; we'll see. And thanks for the YAY! :) Since this particular manuscript is based on my dissertation, it really is pretty much done. I need about a week or so to clean it up before I'll let anyone look at it too closely (taking out a lot of the "dissertation-ese" and the bits where I had to overexplain myself so that those members of my committee who weren't familiar with the texts I was talking about could have a clue without having to read too much). So yeah, this one is more or less "sitting in a drawer." Sometimes, though, they tell me, people will propose a book before it's finished or even started; the press will usually ask for "projected completion date" as part of the proposal. That's the way it works for academic presses, anyway. Dunno 'bout presses interested in fiction or such...

Have fun sewing! Hope the calzone was good! :)
