You know how I've been talking about sending queries to publishers about my book of columns for ages? Last Fall, I went through the Writer's Guide and listed the ten publishers who published humor books similar enough to mine, and would accept unagented queries. Well, I finally got my act together, and sent out the first three inquiries (two by post, one email). The other publishers want a proposal packet, which will need a little more work to prepare.
So, now I can say I'm actually trying to sell this book.
