For the right price, you can be a character in a King novel.

Some people might be interested to know that there is an auction on Ebay involving Stephen King: If you’ve ever wanted to be a character in a Stephen King novel, here’s your chance! From September 1-25, 2005, Auction Cause will be conducting an auction through eBay Giving Works in which 17 authors are auctioning the opportunity to be a character in an upcoming novel, with the proceeds being donated to the First Amendment Project, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to protecting and promoting freedom of information, expression, and petition. The auction for the Stephen King character will be from September 8th-18th.

The latest bid stands at: US $11,100.00, so it's only for those with a large wallet or purse.

Hmmm... didn't I read somewhere that King has given up writing?

I don't think he'll ever give up writing. It's in his blood.

Makes me wonder what sort of heroic act (or dastardly deed) will the winner be performing (or his namesake) in Mr. King's novel. :)

Well now that the price is at US $19,999.00, I should hope their name is on every page;-)
