Enter raffle to have a character named after you in a new book by Antioch author

Antioch author Sarah Sundin

Have you ever read a book where a character had your name? This is your chance to make that happen and help support the El Campanil Theatre Preservation Foundation at the same time.

Sarah Sundin is the author of eight historical novels, including Anchor in the Storm (coming May 2016). Her novel Through Waters Deep was named to Booklist’s “101 Best Romance Novels of the Last 10 Years,” and her novella “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” in Where Treetops Glisten was a finalist for the 2015 Carol Award. A mother of three, Sarah lives in Antioch, works on-call as a hospital pharmacist, and teaches Sunday School. www.sarahsundin.com

Sarah has offered to include five characters’ names in the first book of her Brothers of Liberation series, contracted to be published in spring 2018​.

To accomplish this as a fundraiser for El Campanil Theatre we will raffle 5 character’s names.

Each chance is $10.

You can either “win” the opportunity to use your own name, the name of a loved one (perhaps to honor a relative who served in WWII), or to create a name for a character.

In addition, each of the 5 winners will receive a signed copy of the book.

“I will need to retain some artistic control, which I would negotiate with the winners,” Sundin said. “For example, if the name is super-modern and wouldn’t fit in the 1940s or if the name is too similar to the hero’s name and would cause reader confusion we could discuss a solution.”

Proceeds from this raffle will be used to support the El Campanil Theatre Preservation Foundation facility management projects.

Raffle Tickets now on sale and available through April 30, 2016

$10 per chance. Donate $50 and receive 5 chances.

Chances may be purchased at the ticket office, by phone at (925) 757-9500 or online:  CLICK HERE. There are no convenience fees.

Thank you for your support of El Campanil Theatre Preservation Foundation.
