To encourage you to sponsor me for the Clarion Write-a-Thon, I'm offering the highest donor the chance to name a character in the novel Transplants, which will be published by EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing in 2012.
The character, a human male, appears in Chapter 6 and does very little besides die at a decisive and heartbreaking moment, and for maximum heartbreaking effect, he needs a name. This character goes by only one name, a first name.
You can name him — perhaps after yourself, or after a loved one as a one-of-a-kind gift.
So far you have to beat a pledge of $10.
