NASCAR Champion's Week in NYC

If you're a NASCAR fan (or just a fan of NYC in general), you'd love Champion's Week, which takes place the first weekend in December. Aflac (yes, the insurance people with the cute duck mascot) puts on a great event called FanFest that includes driver appearances, Q&A's, giveaways, interactive games and--of course--book signings.

Liz Allison and I participated in two signings at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square and had a great time. Harlequin generously donated 200 copies of our fall books, Risking Her Heart and A NASCAR Holiday 3, which we gave away to enthusiastic NASCAR fans. After months of being chained to the laptop, trying to write stories our readers will enjoy, it's so nice to see people face-to-face and get their responses to the books. Liz and I were honored to be invited and look forward to making it an annual event.

Plus, NYC is such a beautiful, vibrant place at holiday time. People filling the streets, the amazing tree in Rockefeller Plaza, the restaurants and shops decked out in displays, wreaths and brilliant lights. It really gets you in the mood for celebrating.

Despite the crazy times we live in, I hope all of you are anticipating the joy of the season and spending time with the ones you love.

Happy Holidays!
