Offer: Godhood (Tuckerization. But "godhood" sounds better.)

Item Name & Description: I have a new pair of novels coming out soon! They're very different from the Inheritance Trilogy -- set in an ancient-Egyptlike fantasy realm, with a complex pantheon (not based on actual Kemetic or Kushite religions; I would never be so disrespectful. It's something original). I am willing to name one of the gods of this pantheon after you, should you win this bid.

Note: I reserve the right to alter your name so that it will fit the aesthetics of the series! I'll keep it as recognizable as I can.

Starting Bid: $300. Hey, it's godhood. I can't sell that cheap! Plus, I'd like this particular offer to cover the average price of one round-trip plane ticket within the continental US. Ideally I'd like to see it hit at least $500, which should cover tickets even from a non-hub city, and some non-US cities.

Notes: The first book of the duology, Reaper, is very tentatively scheduled to be out in mid-2012. This can of course change depending on my publisher's schedule. I have no control over this. So unfortunately, since I can't share the book until it's published, you'll have no proof that I've held up my end of the bargain 'til the book comes out. But I will kick in a free autographed copy of the first printing when that time rolls around, for whoever wins. (If there are Advanced Reader Copies, I'll send one of those.)

E-mail: Just message me through nojojojo! Or email me.

Bidding starts Monday, February 21, 2011, at 12:01 a.m. EST (GMT -5) and ends Sunday, March 6, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Conventions are great - they were a wonderful experience when I went to them, and I had a chance to meet people, see things and develop new interests - something everyone should have a chance to do.

So, allow me to raise the stakes... $500.
