Donald Trump James PattersonDonald Trump likes the occasional movie cameo and hosting his own TV show, but he wants nothing to do with being in a novel by James Patterson. At the Palm Beach Police Ball last weekend in Florida, New York Times best-selling author Patterson gave bidders a chance to have their name appear as a character in an upcoming book -- but Trump bid $100,000 to keep his name out of the book.

Trump's bid was the largest in a night totaling a whopping $500,000 raised for the Palm Beach Police Foundation. Patterson alone raised $170,000 by auctioning off characters. Others bid quantities of $10,000 and $50,000 to be named a villain or a hero in the new novel.
