    Premature congrats

    Whether it's definite or not, I'm congratulating you anyway.

    Ironically, this book set fell through.
    However, they are taking my proposal, sample chapter, and sample photos to their editorial committee come next Monday for a possible new book deal.

    I thank you for the comments in this old thread and appreciate any new fairydust and hopeful thoughts for my new baby that is in their hands.
