I read the new today, and everything they say just makes me want to stay inside and wait.
This week has been pretty overwhelming news wise. I feel so small only being able to sit in my home and simply watch the compounding tragedy in Japan. I can't even begin to fathom what those people are going through. I'm so thankful my family and friends are safe at this moment.
Instead of focusing on the bad, I thought I'd try to offer my small hand at some good, in way of help for those suffering.
Some authors are gathering together to help Japan. Here is a link to Rachel Harrie's new blog, Write Hope. I know I've seen others, if anyone out there has links, please add them in comments.
Incubus (the band quoted above, btw), has the incredible Make Yourself Foundation set up to help all sorts of great causes. It's no surprise that almost immediately, they updated their page to include donations to aid Japan.
I also thought I'd share some awesome author news that's been happening all around the blogosphere and beyond.
Carolina Valdez Miller and a Compuserve forumite, Beth, acquired agents. Yay! for them. It's so well-deserved!
Kristen and Linda G., both got book deals. Not only book deals. They both got two-book deals. Huge, massive, giant congrats to both.
Beyond the depression that has consumed me, I've had a busy/stressful time with a bunch of other things this week so I haven't been around to the blogs. I should be back on Monday. You've been warned ;-)
Please friends, share some more good news, or helpful links, in the comments. And have a super-terrific-safe-awesome weekend!
