Auction: Character Name

There’s a community on Livejournal doing a wonderful thing: from the profile, it is attempting to “raise money for the fight against the California initiative which will legally destroy existing same-sex marriages and ban any further ones.”

I’m willing to do my part and, in that vein, I am offering the winning bidder a chance to name a character in my upcoming novel World on Fire. Character, building name, pet name, it’s up to the winner what they label. And I get a chance to refuse and ask for a second choice, of course. Bids start at $50, and there’s already been a nibble. So check it out, donate for a good cause, and get immortalized in World on Fire! You’ll also get an autographed copy of the book once I have my author’s copies.

I also won’t be using the names of real-life people or copyrighted names. I can’t afford to be sued! 😀 Bidding closes on July 15, 12:01 AM one minute after midnight Pacific Time, 2008.

Happy bidding!

Edited: Auction ended and, for $50, LJ user maryling shall have a character named after her in World on Fire. Congratulations to her, and a big thank you for supporting such a worthy cause!
