HONEOWP Update/Odds and Ends

Well, my day started off well. I read this morning that Johnny Depp is close to signing a deal for a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Best idea I’ve heard in a while. Now, if I can just write it for Disney…

I’m missing my writer friends from RWA! Writing is very lonely. Thank goodness for social media.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research earned $25 in HONEOWP money last month. Which means I’m a little late announcing this month’s HONEOWP charity. This month’s charity is Bite-Back: Shark and Marine Conservation. Very cool. This charity is a leader in the “mission to halt the trade and consumption of vulnerable fish species, promote sustainable fishing, protect ocean habitats and inspire worldwide respect for the marine environment.” (Quote from their home page.) The organization is based in the United Kingdom, but has a global focus, so I decided it qualified. Besides, I really like their name.

We all know I like names. I’m trying to get together another round of authors for my Rose is a Rose series. I may try to concentrate on romance and women’s fiction this time. I have a few contacts from my RWA conference, and though I haven’t asked them yet, I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I’ll keep you posted.

Last bit of news. Got my requested materials off to the two agents. Now I’m trying to wait patiently. I know they both have a ton of reading to do after the conference. And, well, I need to move on to another project. I’ve been debating between two. One is a medical romance. The other has a bit of time travel in it. It’s more fun but much more complex. If I can pin down the characters of the medical, I might decide to do that one since it’ll be easier.

But that’s for another time. Right now it’s time to get ready for the pool and do some summer stuff with my young’uns!
