Dude! The bidding on the auction items (Tuckerization here, gift basket here) shot up after yesterday’s post. There will be a give-away of A FANTASY MEDLEY advanced reader copy on…Tuesday, June 2, because I’ll be on vacation on the 1st. :)

If the combined price of both items goes past, let’s see, what’s dramatic enough? The combined price is currently at $305. If it goes past $450 I’ll write a new Walker Papers or Old Races short story (the high bidders get to choose) for my insanely generous blog readers.

You people are so cool. :)

The Inheritors’ Cycle make an appearance at Balticon, where cypherindigo informs me that the piles got steadily smaller all weekend. I really *do* have the most awesome readers. Thank you, Mary. Thank you all. *beams* (You know, I don’t think I’ve put them together like that before. Those really are pretty covers, aren’t they?)

Regarding the tuckerisation - I got done in Jo Walton's Half a Crown, and was most chuffed when my namesake ended up both prominent and a villain (though he did fade out by the later parts of the novel). His idea of a good time was to take the heroine to a bonfire party - a book bonfire.

But yes - it's probably not a good idea for it to be a gift, unless you know the recipient and have an idea that it would be properly received.

bellinghwoman got a small part somewhere around p98 of Terry Pratchett's Maskerade, but he did ask her first what she'd like to be. Oh, and the stage play thereof changed which character was named after her, as the original role doesn't exist in it. She also had her name borrowed for a character in a James Herbert novel, apparently, but not being a horror reader, she doesn't know which (or if it happened after all).
