Bestselling authors and Novelicious favourites including Liane Moriarty, Lucy Diamond, Paige Toon, Cathy Bramley, Miranda Dickinson, Lucy Robinson and Rachael Lucas are offering fans the opportunity to have their name appear in their forthcoming novels.
They are amongst over 70 popular authors who are taking part in this year’s Get in Character eBay auction, an annual fundraiser organized by CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.
The 10-day auction kicked off at 8pm (GMT) last night and will run through to 8pm on Sunday 8 March 2015. The highest bidders for each author buy the opportunity to have a character named after them in their next book, and immortality in print. People can also bid to have a character named after a loved one.
