Vacation Time

I've got one vacation day left here on my mini-summer-vacation (which I'm enjoying the hell out of, thank you very much). As I told one pen pal friend, I am doing my best to emulate our lazy backyard cat, pictured here.

But part of what I'm doing with my vacation is turning the limited brain power I have (day job tends to suck it up like a zombie) to plan. And by "plan," I mean "plan book stuff." So I'm working on promo ideas and posts and materials. And I'm getting my head together about the next book (what must Kate experience while she's in Los Angeles?! hey, that might be its own blog post...).

And blame my mother, but I'm even thinking about what next year's vacations might be. Or at least, how I will use vacation time next year. Mom wants a big vacation for a Voldemort birthday (it will not be named, get it?). I (and some friends) have an unfulfilled desire to get to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. And now I also want to get back to the Indy 500.

Maybe all of those things can happen. But I should probably consider what race books 5 and 6 will be about, and be strategic about the racing trips.

So I have questions. What races should I go to next year? Is it too early to be thinking about this? And where should we go on vacation with Mom? I welcome all suggestions.
