Want to have a character named after you in my next book? Then enter this great giveaway!

How would you like to be rewarded for reading my books - over and above the reading experience, of course!
One thing I have noticed about the Wall Of Spears tour is how many more people are declaring they only read the books digitally.
Now there's nothing wrong with eBooks and I'm always happy to pose for a photo with the books, so people know what to look for online (although I'd prefer it if they had a Kobo or Sony or iPad rather than a Kindle ...).
But while my books have received fantastic reviews online and in newspapers (thanks Tsana's Blog, Speculate Fiction and Newtown Review Of Books!), plus stacks of great reviews on Goodreads, these haven't been posted directly to the various eBook sites.
After The Wounded Guardian was featured on iTunes earlier this year, it has picked up some great reviews but that is the exception to the rule. If you look on iTunes, Amazon, Kobo - hardly any reviews at all. Bridge Of Swords, for instance, doesn't have a single one.
So, if you have read my books, then perhaps you can help remedy that by reviewing and rating the books on iTunes, Amazon and Kobo.
Now I do appreciate that is time and effort on your part, so here's the giveaway:  I'll be giving out a prize for the two most creative reviews. I do want to stress here that I'm not looking for the most suckworthy reviews but rather one that shows you've read and enjoyed the books and reveals some aspect of that.
The prize is simple - you will get to have a character named after you in my next series. You will also get to choose whether you want that character to be a goodie or a baddie. It can also be named after your first name or a nickname, whatever you wish.
The competition will run until the end of April 2014, to give everyone I meet on my Wall Of Spears tour a chance to enter.All you have to do is post the review and then let me know you've done so, either through a comment on this post or through Twitter, Facebook or via my email address on the top of the blog.
At the end of April I'll contact the winners and let them choose how they want to be named.
Finally, please be honest, I'm not looking to swamp these sites with five-star reviews but rather more accurately reflect how my books are regarded.
Thanks and good luck for the giveaway!
