Get Into Character with CLIC Sargent
But have you ever fancied being a character in your favourite author's next book? Well, thanks to CLIC Sargent, the cancer charity for young people, your wish might just come true. Their Get Into Character auction is running now, and if you're a bookworm there are some cracking prizes to bid for. Big names like Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl On The Train, have promised that winning bidders will appear in their next novel as a character.
Now, they're not promising that you'll be the star of the piece, but how cool would it be to have your name in a novel? If thrillers aren't your thing, romantic writers such as Julie Cohen are also offering you the chance to appear in print, without all that tedious mucking about of actually writing a book.
There are plenty of other prizes on offer as well, from signed first editions to writing critiques from the likes of Claire Dyer (should you have gone to the bother of trying to get that book in you out into the open). Bibliophiles, there's really no excuse not to lay a bid down. You might just find yourself part of an awfully big adventure...
The CLIC Sargent Get Into Character charity auction is on now and runs until Mothering Sunday, March 6th. Hey, that could make a cool pressie for the bookworm mum in your life!
