Day 5, Item 6: Your Own Grisly (and Fictional) Death

From author Dan Wells

Win Your Own Grisly Death (Fictional Edition) All your life you've longed to be immortalized in art, and now your time has come. The winner of this auction will appear, by name, in one of Dan Wells's books, where he or she will be brutally and creatively murdered. Generations of eager bibliophiles and/or forensic pathologists will read your name and wonder how anyone could end up so amazingly dead.

Highest bidder will be contacted for information, such as; first and last name, age, gender, height, eye and hair color and any other information that may be requested from the author.

Dan Wells is the author of several supernatural thrillers, including I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER, MR. MONSTER, and I DON’T WANT TO KILL YOU. He is a co-host on the podcast Writing Excuses, for which he has won two Parsec awards; his podcast has been nominated for a Hugo this year, and Dan has been nominated for a Campbell award for best new writer. He plays a lot of games, reads a lot of books, and eats a lot of food, which is pretty much the ideal life he imagined for himself as a child.

Learn more about Dan on his website, facebook page, and on Twitter, or listen to his podcast.

This item will close on Sunday, September 18. Highest bid timestamped 10PM (EST) or earlier wins.

    Sorry, I had the same idea for my wife's birthday (it's Halloween!) and what could be more appropriate than getting a murder! Of course, I'll give her the option of killing me instead....

    As a recipient of the same "gift?", I thought it was completely brilliant! Seriously, it was such an unexpected surprise and I loved it! I will be back to bid before 10:00 p.m. :) I need to fictionally kill my husband for our anniversary by the hand of Mr. Wells.
