58: Character name in new novel by KATE HARRISON

ITEM: Your name – or a friend/family member’s – will feature in either one of my women’s fiction novels or Book Three of the Soul Beach trilogy (your choice) – plus there’ll be a personal mention in the acknowledgements and a signed copy of the novel.

[Note from Kate: Please note it will be a minor character and only the name will be used, rather than any personal or physical attributes! There will also be a bit of a wait because I’m already working on books for 2012 & 2013.]
