Sixteen authors, including such notables as Stephen King, Amy Tan, John Grisham and Lemony Snicket, are auctioning the opportunity for your name to appear in their next work. The auctions run at various times during September and are a fundraiser for the First Amendment Project.
Earlier this year, Neil Gaiman, another participant, auctioned off the name of a cruise ship in and a signed first edition of his novel Anasi Boys and raised more than over $3,500 for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.
