Offered: Name a Character and Free Copy of Upcoming Book by Dina James

What You Are Bidding On:

The option to name a character in Dina James' next novel.

You may name this character after yourself, or homage a friend. You are bidding on the NAME ONLY, not the plot. You may not specify what novel/world your character is in, what happens to the character, who they are, what they do, how much page time they get, or whether or not they live or die. You also recognize that the character name may not be applied to a human character, though if that's your wish, Dina will take that into consideration. You may specify the gender of your named character.

You also recognize that you must provide an actual, usable name for a character of any type. You may not win this auction then specify that the character be named "Meatlocker" or "*InsertBodyPartandVulgarity here*."

If you win this auction, details will be discussed with the author after your win. You will receive a free copy of the book your named character is in. Though she will do her best to complete your bid in a timely manner, keep in mind this particular win could take up to two years or more to come to fruition. Writing a book and publishing it is a long process!
