Have you ever been so captivated by a book that it feels like you are inside the world of the story, getting to know the characters and the lives they lead?


Becoming part of a story by your favourite author could soon become a reality, as tonight charity CLIC Sargent are launching their annual ‘Get in Character’ eBay auction to raise money for children and young people affected by cancer, and their families.

There are 69 popular authors taking part in this year’s 10-day auction, from Paige Toon to Kate Riordan, and each one is offering the highest bidders the opportunity to become a character in their next book! You could also bid to have a character named after a loved one – possibly the best Mother’s Day gift of all time?!


In addition, signed book bundles from amazing authors such as Sarah Addison-Allen, Jodi Picoult, Lucy Dillion, Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes are up for grabs.

The action will start at 8pm on Thursday 26 February and finish on 8pm Sunday 8 March 2015.
