I decided to clarify butter into ghee this evening because I want to get back into Indian cooking, although I never actually used it when I used to cook Indian food. OMG, that smells so good. I'm doing it for authenticity and to have a more shelf-stable butter, but it's worth it just for the scent.

Another week, another non-ringing phone. :( Another week void of emails from NYSM, BMFA, or Bunka Gakuen. :( I'm so stressed out right now, with the job hanging over my head (it's still not relisted anywhere and thus probably still open ... it must get filled soon, right? They want someone to start in the second week of February!) and my self-esteem's riding on the book thing, and of course there's politics - though I have to say that following all the protests on Twitter today did make me feel a lot better on that score. But still, the stress is just gnawing at me constantly.

:( Too many jobs are advertised and even interviewed for because they don't want it to look like they just promoted someone in-house, even when they knew they were going to all along...
I hope I'm wrong!! Very very wrong!
Have you looked into Dover Publications for the book? I don't know much about fashion history books, but I know they print old non-fiction specialist books of all kinds, including translations.
Keep smiling, girl! You could take your mind off it all and come discuss the new QT book at the Sounis chat this evening?

They should have to send out weekly updates of what's going on, I think.

The trouble with Dover is, apart from the licensing still being an issue (I can't run a Kickstarter to fund a professionally published book, and they won't pay thousands for images), that they are not about authors at all. They're about republishing public domain material so it's more available. Which is cool, but not attractive to me.
