Game of Thrones: Spend a day with author George R R Martin by donating £10, or appear in book for £20,000
The author is auctioning GoT prizes in aid of his favourite charities
As if he hasn’t put Game of Thrones fanatics through enough emotional turmoil by killing off their favourite characters, George RR Martin has said he will give a fan a "grisly" end – by writing their death in a novel in exchange for a £20,000 donation to his favourite charities.
As part of his fundraising campaign in aid of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot, both operating in New Mexico, Martin is offering a string of prizes, including a writing their death in a future A Song of Ice and Fire novel.
Moneyed fans with a spare £20,000 will enter a draw to become the ‘Martyr’ donator, allowing them to choose their character’s station in the novel before they die. There is one male and one female character available, according to the author.
Meanwhile, a person who forks out £7,500 to gain the title of ‘King’ donator will be sent Martin’s “well worn” sailor’s cap in the post.
For followers of the series without thousands of pounds to give, any donator offering over £10 will be entered into a draw to meet Martin in Sante Fé, before being taking on a helicopter ride with him to the wolf sanctuary for a guided tour.

“If there's anything you have ever wanted to ask me, here's your chance!” wrote the author on his Prizeo page.
Over 60 wolves and wolf-dogs live at the Wild Spirit sanctuary, most of whom were rescued from captivity and so do not have the skills to survive in the wild.
The Food Depot provides food for 135 not-for-profit agencies including homeless shelters, youth programs, senior centres, homes for the mentally disabled and shelters for victims of domestic abuse.
"I can't thank you enough for helping these two organizations that are so close to my heart," wrote the author.
