If you have a book for which you have obtained a copyright clearance and you are not yet eligible for Project Managing: you can choose to wait until you have been granted access (perhaps start prepping it with guidance from a PM Mentor) or, if you are anxious to see it go through the rounds sooner, you might consider offering it as a Content Provider--in which case another Project Manager will adopt it.
See the Project Managing FAQ for more information.
Because of the amount of regular practice required to maintain Project Management skills, DP may remove that access if a volunteer has not worked in that area for an extended period.
