I'm new to the list (just joined on Friday), and I can already see that the
list is fast becoming an indispensable (and enjoyable) resource...

So, to jump in...

I have found a potential collaborator for a book project which will use
different, and hopefully more effective, methodologies to teach programming

Are there any thoughts on the marketability of yet another book for
beginning programmers? More appear on the shelves every week, but I have no
way of knowing if these books sell, or disappear as quickly (or probably
more quickly) than they were written...

And, (forgive me if this is incredibly basic) how does one go about finding
a publisher for programming books? And, does an agent/editor/publisher want
to see a fair chunk of a manuscript, or is it better to pitch a proposal

Again, sorry this is basic stuff, but who's going to know if not the members
of this list...

Many thanks in advance for your time and help...
