Update: My 2017 publisher wanted to discard the first five years (34,000 words) of my story arc, and after unsuccessful attempts to negotiate, I asked for my rights back. I have my THIRD contract on the damn book and just sent back the last-chance author's revisions. Book should come out some time this spring although it isn't officially scheduled yet.
My final stats were
1453 useless queries to literary agents
117 queries to small presses resulting in
1 signed contract 2016 (Ellora's Cave, went out of business)
1 signed contract 2017 (NineStar Press, irreconcilable diffs, asked for my rights back)
1 signed contract 2019 (Sunstone Press)
Congrats on finding a publisher (again) and hope this time everything works out for you!
