Published! Manuscript Manager.
Published! is a tool for authors, poets, artists, researchers, song writers... for you who breathes life into pages with your words.
Use it to maintain a comprehensive database of your agents, publishers or markets, and when submitting your work, for querying publishers that match your specific criteria: multiple submissions, simultaneous submissions, submission mode, contest dates...
Once your work is out in the market, Published! can monitor how long a piece of work stays out. When an editor sends his comment on your article, record it in Published! ...
Use it to track multiple revisions to your work-- both as an independent piece of work, and as a revision of an earlier work. Use it as your contacts database, and to accurately track revenues and expenses arising from submissions.

Works and Revisions
Your pride and joy...
Published! includes a full text editor for creating your works. The text editor includes standard document operations like search, spell-check, formatting etc. For each work, particulars like date started, date ended, word count, genre and notes, can be entered. Each work can morph into a whole number of revisions. Each revision is an independent work and is also a sibling of another work.
As a free-standing-work, a revision can be tracked as an individual work. However, as a sibling of another work, it can be tracked in the context of its parent.
A Relationships manager
Because people move...
It is a relationship manager. Tracking is through the complete chain of submissions. Submissions can be tracked to publishers/agents, and also to contacts at that publisher. Contacts at a publisher can move to another publisher, and since submissions might follow these individuals, one can follow the contacts as they move across organizations. However, the work submitted links to the correct version for its time.
Income and Expenses
Good to be compensated...
It is your personal finance manager. Track ongoing revenue from each piece. Record expenses incurred in creating the piece. Assign categories to income and expenses. Analyze them based on categories and date ranges. Get the overall income/expense from all works put together.
Powerful Query and Reporting
For the hero will search...
Each section of the interface (Publishers, Contacts, Submissions, Works, Genres, Financial Categories) can be searched by a number of criteria. The results that you see on screen after the search are also reflected in the paper reports. Each sectional report allows you to look at the data in a meaningful way.
Work and its revisions can be organized in a Finder like tree-view metaphor: as files and folders. You can also use this feature to organize a novel into chapters, a research work into sections etc.
