It's all the rage, now, to have contests where the prize is your name in a book. Maybe you'll be murdered, even!
To me, this is rather eery. My name in a book seems too... powerful. Too voodoo-ish. Too freaky. I don't want someone else messing with my fate, LOL.
I'd hate having a character named after me.
What about you? Is this just me? Would you be thrilled to have your name in a book, or horrified?
