Dear Christine Hamm -
I'm abashed that I've been so long in replying - thought I had. The time just flies away.
I'd like to keep "The Transparent Dinner" just a little longer. It definitely makes the "first cut," and I need to see what is in that category, look at publication schedule, and then make final decision. I'm finally making good progress at clearing the inbox, so I should be able to give you a final answer shortly. OTOH, I certainly understand if you want to send a manuscript to the other publisher. If they accept it, please let me know.
All the best,
(Certain publisher of books)
Now I'm going to be even more anxious!!
