Limited time offer - name a character

Ever wanted to see your name in a book? Or got a brilliant name and nothing much to do with it? Well, make a new, or increase an existing, pledge to Time's Fool before midnight 5th November 2017 and you can name a character in my 2017 Nanowrimo project, Leech*.

Simply pledge (or increase your pledge) and write in the comments what you want your character to be called. The novel is set in a diverse, near future Britain, but also contains beings whose names may be more outlandish to us.

A novella of conscience and culpability set in a supernatural dystopia, Leech is a harsher, more political story than Time's Fool, and is a project I've been wanting to work of for some years now. Even if I fail at Nano this year, it will still be finished, probably in the next twelve months or so. While I cannot promise you that the character you name will end up being a major - or necessarily pleasant - you will still get to see them living in that world.

Naming a character is usually a premium level pledge - so this is a limited time offer that should not be missed. You can take advantage of it from as little as £5 if you upgrade from ebook to paperback. Not only will you get your name in the back of Time's Fool as a supporter, but you will get a mention in the actual acknowledgements of Leech.

Note: If you want to pledge in this time, but opt out of picking a name, that is absolutely fine.

Thank you for your support of Time's Fool, and wish me luck in Nanowrimo!
