A few years ago, Terry took part in an auction to help out the World Association for Children & Parents.
What was up for auction? The winning bidder got their name in a Terry Brooks book! A fan named Langdon Shoop won the auction and Terry created the character Shoopdiesel in A Princess of Landover. Langdon was thrilled and Terry had great fun creating that character.
Last year, Terry conducted another name auction, and the winning bidder became the character Brickey in the Legends of Shannara duology.
Well, it is time to do it again! The online portion of WACAP Children’s Hope Auction 2011 is now open. The auction will run from October 30, 2011 to Sunday, November 13, 2011. Proceeds go to WACAP (World Association for Children & Parents) in order to support children. Let the bidding begin!
Here is some more information about it!
Estimated Value: Priceless
Item Number: 111
Would you like to be immortal? For more than 30 years, Terry Brooks has been a highly influential force in fantasy fiction. His first book, The Sword of Shannara, was published in 1977 and made publishing history, becoming the first work of fiction to appear on the New York Times Trade Paperback Bestseller list, where it remained for over five months. His Shannara, Landover and Word & Void books have made him one of the top picks of fantasy readers worldwide. His works have been compared to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Now you can be a character in one of his books!! With over 50 books currently in print, you can be assured that any book he writes will be read by thousands and become a part of book collections in home and libraries around the world. In addition, you will receive an autographed copy of the finished book on publication.
Your name will appear in a book to be published in 2012 or 2013.
The author, of course, retains the right to decide if you will be a hero, a villain, a human, a monster or something even stranger. He also reserves the right to alter the form of your name, since this is a fantasy story.
The more you bid, the better your chances of being cast in a favorable role and being given a larger part in the story.We should add that, depending on the name and the amount bid, the name used could appear in more than one book since he is writing a set of three at the current time.

Good luck to all!

I truly wish I had extra money for this cause! I think it is a wonderful cause and a perfect prize!
I WON!! I just got the email. THis is AWESOME! The wife is mad that I spent the money though but it was for charity so I don’t feel so bad. I can’t believe this!
Congrats, Brandon! I’m sure Terry will be using some variation of KEETON. 🙂
I’ve always liked the name Braxton myself. Whenever I geek out on Dragon Age I always chose that as a character name. No idea what “Keeton” will be turned into if anything at all.
I’m an active duty U.S. Marine (19 years) and Martial Artist (Regional Champ this weekend!). My mind is absolutely racing right now. If he makes me something along the lines of the Garet Jax character from Wishsong, I’ll faint from that level of awesomeness.
I really wish I had a bunch of extra cash laying around. Would love to bid for this. It goes to a great cause and also would love to be in my favorite author’s book.
This is a really neat idea! If this is going to be a reoccurring auction I’ll have to start saving some money for the next go round.
I bid 500k!…
Ahhhh If this was February I’d have the money to bid. This is so amazing and I can’t wait to auction the next time.
I sooo wish I could do this. Would be a great honor and a full cycle as my middle child is named after a character from Antrax
I just love your books all of them, can’t ever wait for new ones to come out. When I first discovered them I want to live in your world all the time and took to dressing like your characters. I especially love your strong women characters.
