Phonology: click question

It's me again. We've been really busy, getting floyded...er,
FLOODED...by hurricane Floyd and then moving, so I haven't been
around much, but I am back now and I have a question.
One feature that I have been thinking about is a nasalized click
that will come only immediately before a nasalized vowel. The
click I have in mind is made with the tongue flat on the palate,
a sort of middle of the mouth sound. Would that be called a
"palatal click" or is that way too obvious, and it is really
called something else? What about a click made with the tip of
the tongue in the same spot? I like that too. The nasal part just
helps me pronounce it smoothly going into the vowel. That's a
personal thing, but I like the way it sounds also.
Pondering these things while unpacking...
