444: A character named after you in the upcoming middle grade novel At Your Service by Jen Malone

At Your Service by Jen MaloneITEM: A character named after you in the upcoming middle grade novel At Your Service by Jen Malone

DETAILS: This would make a really fun holiday gift for a tween! I will name a character after you or your gift recipient in my upcoming MG debut, to be published with Simon & Schuster in August 2014. Since the book is already in copy edits, this will have to be more of a character mention (hey, but you get to be a famous rock star though!) I will also provide a signed copy with dedication upon publication.

BIO: Jen Malone is the author of the upcoming middle grade novel AT YOUR SERVICE, Simon and Schuster/Aladdin (goodreads link:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18104774-at-your-service). Jen Malone is a recovering world traveler who met her husband on the highway (literally) and went into labor with her identical twins on a rock star’s tour bus. These days she prefers to keep the drama inside her books (sort of).

About Candy Gourlay

Growing up in the Philippines, Candy Gourlay wondered why all the books she'd ever loved didn't resemble her steamy, tropical home in Manila. As a result, it took her years to fulfil her dream of becoming an author – and years to learn that Filipino stories, too, belong in the pages of books. Her latest novel is BONE TALK, set in 1899 and told from the point of view of a boy from a headhunting village during the US invasion of the Philippines. She has just published her first picture book, IS IT A MERMAID – about a dugong who thinks she's a mermaid. Candy's other novels, TALL STORY and SHINE, have been listed for many prizes in the United Kingdom such as the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Book Prize. Both novels won the Crystal Kite Prize for Europe and Tall Story was awarded the National Children's Book Award in the Philippines.

  2. Hi, US-based friends! I just wanted to note that, although you have to bid in British pounds, you can make your donation in US dollars to the American Red Cross, so it’s not as complicated as it might seem, I promise!! Right now one US dollar = 1.66 pounds, but here is a handy-dandy conversion calculator: http://www.x-rates.com/calculator/?from=GBP
