gridlore: A pile of a dozen hardback books (Books)

Yes, another fundraising post.

I'm working on a novel for NaNoWriMo. Working title is The Prophet Principle and it's a SF thriller/caper novel. I will finish this and publish it through Createspace. But here's the thing. . .

I suck at names. I tend to use name generators, which are fine, but I would prefer to both do something fun and raise some money for the trip. So I'm selling naming rights. I have about ten characters who will be in most of the book. About half will die along the way. Here's the deal.

For $250 donation to the fund, I'll name my protagonist after you, or whoever you want. I'll take your description or photo, any mannerisms or quirks, and write them in. Note the character is a confidence artist and thief.

For a $100 donation to the fund, You get to name one of the supporting characters. Same as above. Some of these characters have roles established, so we might have to find a good fit.

For $50, your name gets mentioned. Somewhere. Random bartender, Krazy [name]'s Used Starships, mook who gets killed and his mate goes nuts screaming "They killed [name]!" As above, but details will be limited.

When you make your kind donation, comment with "character." Kirsten will send you my email so we can have some fun. When the book is published, I'll autograph a copy and mail to all the people who became part of it.

I'll be honest; this book is unlikely to win a Hugo, or sell more than a few dozen copies. But I think it will be fun and I am determined to be published.

So please consider making a donation! We are still a few hundred dollars way from maxing out the donation match challenge from Earth Baby, so your donation will count double!

We just found out there is a book and map marketplace next to the Grand Bazaar. We need the money.
