ITEM: A book written to order about your children in the adventure of their choice.
DETAILS: Piers will interview your child/children and write a bespoke story starring them as the main characters in the fictional world of their choosing.
BIO: Piers Torday is the bestselling author of The Last Wild Trilogy (Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize) and There May Be A Castle.
WHO CAN BID: The greater the bid, the longer the story, £1 per word. Minimum bid is £500. Interviews outside London and the UK will be conducted via Skype. The finished story will be published on my website and the successful bidder will also receive a signed and bound copy. I reserve the right to publish it in magazines, online etc, to secure further funds for the appeal. If the successful bid is over £10,000, I will attempt to secure publication, with all profits going to the British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund. I will set the book anywhere as long as it does not infringe international copyright law (e.g. alas Harry Potter fan-fiction will not be possible!) I will retain copyright of the finished story, but any direct future earnings from it will go to the above fund or in the event of its closure, the British Red Cross.
