Yes I can.
I mentioned over on Jim's blog that I almost named my newest character after him, but decided I wanted to use his name for an evil and/or sniveling character. He said he'd rather be fiendishly clever. I said maybe evil, sniveling and fiendishly clever. I'm sure we'll work it out.
A while back, when Master Scalzi was posting author links, he linked Tim Pratt's post about how he should be a character in everybody's book. I thought that was pretty funny, so Adelaide Rotholz's un-met ex-boyfriend is named Tim Pratt.
I bet you want to be in my book. Sure you do. Tell me who you want to be. Tell me what you'll give me for fulfilling your dream. Get your name in my book.
I can be bribed.
Not really an update: So, RSS people, did you just get to read three versions of this where I corrected unforgivable spelling errors where my six thumbs got in the way?
