Just don't put me in Chapter 11

So, get this: if you spend more money than any other customer in Kepler's bookstore between 9 a.m. May 26 and 9:30 p.m. June 1, you get a character named after you in author Barry Eisler's next thriller.

I'm scratching my head. Love Kepler's, support the independent booksellers...but am I the only one who's getting a strange kind of product-placement headache?

Well, I suppose if there's not a scene in which Laura Linney serves up a delicious, steaming mug of Mococoa, we should all be safe.
