Be a character in CellPosted: August 9, 2005, 22:26:00
King is participating in a major charity auction in which he is auctioning off the name and description of a character in a future book. What he is offering is:
"One (and only one) character name in a novel called CELL, which is now in work and which will appear in either 2006 or 2007. Buyer should be aware that CELL is a violent piece of work, which comes complete with zombies set in motion by bad cell phone signals that destroy the human brain. Like cheap whiskey, it's very nasty and extremely satisfying. Character can be male or female, but a buyer who wants to die must in this case be female. In any case, I'll require physical description of auction winner, including any nickname (can be made up, I don't give a rip)."
When you can bid: September 8-18

As you can see there is also a pretty neat description of the plot of Cell.
