The Month of May

The title of this post means different things to different people. To normal people, it's nothing special. A description, nothing more. To racing fans--IndyCar fans in particular--it means the buildup and the excitement of "the greatest spectacle in racing." The Indy 500.

Me? I mean both. My month starts and ends with book events, and lucky for me, it also ends with the Indy 500. So for this month, I'll be talking about a variety of opportunities I'm going to get to talk about my book, but I'm also going to be talking a lot about a very special car that's going to be on the track for the great race.

For the third year, Pippa Mann (above with me) will be driving the pink #63 car for the Susan G. Komen foundation in the race and racing money for the foundation throughout the month. Her goal? $100,000. All month, she's going to be offering special opportunities and merchandise to fans and supporters to help meet that goal...such as putting a loved-one's name in the cockpit with Pippa as she runs the race.

That means, all month, in addition to talking about my new book, I'm also going to be urging everyone I know to get involved and support Pippa's efforts. I hope you'll join me, and I hope you'll find me somewhere along my journeys!
