* (spring 2016) Rejected proposal for edited volume within a week, but in a very courteous manner. Suggested presses (and even specific acquisition editors) who might be more interested in the proposal.

* terrible. I sent them my manuscript to which they responded in one day that they are not interested. Then, a couple of days later, senior editor contacted me saying that she loved it. I was greatly encouraged but what I received after was silence for the longest time. Then it turned out that editor no longer worked with the press. I met a new one at a conference, she was excited about my project, we exchanged emails and then she went silent. Never responded again. Overall, I dealth with them for a year and eight months! Unprofessional and total waste of time.

* same bad experience (after two previous books published with UT Press with good editorial relationship). New editor kept the ms. for about 7 months and would not answer emails until I insisted with strong subject line (RESPOND!). Editor finally read ms. and quickly rejected. Happy to say it's been warmly accepted by another university press.
