Your quest: Name the serial novel I have been writing in the "gothic renaissance" style with a suitable moniker and win a place in history.
Your prize: Being a character in the book!
Yes, you can live on in (in)famy as a literary character. How great is that? But what's that you say? You don't want your name to appear in the pages due to inordinate modesty? Well, your prize can also be naming a character to honor a past relative, a forgotten dance master, or even your cat. You also get to choose whether your character perishes horribly or helps the heroine out at a key juncture.
To enter, simply post your entry below as a comment. Enter early and often! The final choice will be my own capricious one, so there is no guarantee of fairness, and I may be wickedly influenced by gifts of choclate and laudanum. But the opportunity is all yours --
