    Have you ever fancied being murdered by a psychotic serial killer?
    Well, perhaps not in real life, but how about in a book?
    I have three slots up for grabs for people who want their names to be used in the books as silent victims of the ruthless Bare Lane Butcher. You will be either a prostitute or drug peddler who falls victim to his cutthroat razor as he mimics the barbarous murders that were committed in Morecambe around 120 years previously.
    Your name will be used when Sam and other characters talk about and describe your murder whilst they look over crime scene photos. You will not appear as an active or talking character as you will already be dead.
    Not only will your name be used in this way, but the book is going to be dedicated to the Butcher's victims, so your name will appear not only in the text but also in the front of the book, listed as one of the Butcher's victims.
    I will then sign a copy of the first edition and post it out you as soon as it is published.

    Includes:
    • Appear as a silent victim of the Bare Lane Butcher.
    • Signed paperback copy of Sam Spallucci: Troubled Souls

    What could be better for a horror fan than having their name given to a speaking role in a book then seeing that character on a mortuary slab just a few pages later?
    I have just one slot up for grabs which will see your name applied to an unsavoury pimp in Sam Spallucci: Troubled Souls. They will be a thoroughly unlikeable character who falls foul of the cutthroat razor of the modern day Bare Lane Butcher.
    Please note that the character has already been created and due to plot devices will appear as relatively short in stature, so they may not look perfectly like you, but they will have your name.
    Also, the book is going to be dedicated to the Butcher's victims, so as well as appearing in the text, you will see your name in the dedication in the front.
    You will be able to treasure your starring role as you read about your death in a signed first edition of the book when I post it out to you upon publication.

    Includes:
    • Speaking role in the book as a victim of the Bare Lane Butcher
