    £50

  4. Wow. Thanks guys. And I should point out to any other potential bidders that this will be a character in my next book for adults.

  5. …and it’ll be a substantial enough character to make it into the screenplay should that ever happen.

    £150 – Mr Haig, you really don’t have to sell this – it’s a great lot for your fans and a cause that we all want to give as much to as we are can.

    That said, as much as I would like to see someone swoop in with an enormous counter-bid, I would also love to say, “That’s me in that book!”

  7. Great idea – how about £200?
