281: Alex Marwood will name a character after you

Screen Shot 2013-11-14 at 13.03.50ITEM: Alex Marwood will name a character after you or a person of your choice (but not anyone famous who can sue!) in her next book. Please bear in mind that she writes psychological thrillers, though, so you could end up a murderer… or dead…

BIO: Alex Marwood was a journalist for many years before adopting an alias and turning to crime. Her psychological thriller, the Wicked Girls, became a word-of-mouth bestseller in 2012 and has been translated into 15 languages. The Killer next Door comes out in December 2013.

    Far too much fun not to have a go. I’ll start gently at £10.

  2. It’s my birthday today. Had an amazing day so will up this to £54 – yep one for each year!

  3. £99. My name deserves a wider audience! Even if I do die horribly, or cause someone else to do the same …

  4. £101.00 in a good cause. xx

  5. Okay, but only if you put my wife’s name in your book. I don’t really want you to kill my wife, (a weak defense at a trial), just let her be a nice witness or something. That’s worth £120.
