As with any other number of bloggers, I saw this over at Neil’s Journal, and thought it was worth repeating. If you’ve ever wanted to get your name, or the name of someone you love, into a book, here is your best chance ever. A bunch of terrific writers over at eBay are auctioning the right to have your name, or choice of name, appear in their next book. All monies go to a suitably worthy US-based cause, and it’s a lot of fun. For example, you can be in Stephen King’s next novel, though he does say that the “Character can be male or female, but a buyer who wants to die must in this case be female.” Hmmm. It’d be fun to be in a Neil Gaiman book or a Kelly Link story. Don’t know if I real want to have my brain fried by a fictional cell phone, but it’s cool. Go for it.
