Name a Character in an Upcoming Novel

Have you ever wanted to see your name in a bestselling book? Here’s your chance. In what’s being called a “literary chance of a lifetime,” thirty prominent authors are offering winning bidders the chance to have their names appear in an upcoming novel.

The bidding started on Ebay on November 26, and will continue until December 20. A different group of authors will be featured each week.

You could become an FBI agent or a stripper with a heart of gold in the next entry in Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshooters series, or a villain or a victim in Thomas Perry’s next entry in the Jane Whitefield series. There’s even a chance to name a character on the TV show Weeds.

The auctions will benefit the First Amendment Project, which is a nonprofit organization that provides free legal services on public interest free speech and free press issues. Obviously freedom of speech is a cause that many authors strongly support.

Here is a look at more of the participating authors:
Rick Moody
Suzanne Brockmann
Kevin J. Anderson
Stuart Woods
Dave Eggers
Francine Prose
Stacey D’Erasmo
Thomas Perry
Margot Livesey
Elinor Lipman
Dan Chaon
Lorrie Moore
