Swords & Fire Fan Art (& More) Contest!

There is NOTHING I love more than fan art, so I’m having a contest! Prizes will at minimum include an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) of my new novel in the Swords & Fire universe, THE OBSIDIAN TOWER (not out until June, but you can get it early if you win)! Plus, I’ll add more prizes if I get a lot of entries!

The details:

INTERNATIONAL CONTEST! Since this contest is all about my awesome readers, I want to include ALL of them!

WIDE DEFINITION OF ART! Entries can include memes, stick figures, cosplay photos, quote calligraphy, Incorrect Swords & Fire tweets, aesthetic boards, etc. All skill levels acceptable!

MULTIPLE PRIZES! If I can get enough entries, I’ll add more prizes! I’ll start with an ARC of THE OBSIDIAN TOWER, but if I get a really great response I’ll add stuff like signed books, an annotated/doodled book, Skype call, etc. Stay tuned for further prize announcements!

TIMEFRAME: The contest will run 1 month, to give time for people to create stuff (and for me to hopefully add prizes/annotate a book/etc if I get enough entries). Winner(s) will be picked on March 9.

HOW TO ENTER: Reply to the top tweet in this thread with your art or a link to it! OR, if you don’t have a Twitter account, you can use my contact form to email me a link to your art that I can post to the Twitter thread for you.

MORE DETAILS:

  • One entry per person (you can post more than one thing if you want, but it only counts as one entry)
  • You can enter Swords & Fire art you already did earlier; doesn’t have to be new
  • Art can be any media but MUST pertain to the Swords & Fire trilogy/characters
  • If there is one prize, I will select a random winner from entrants. If there are multiple prizes, I may pick my favorites for some/all of the additional prizes!
  • I may retweet your art to squee over it and show it to the world, but I will not repost or reuse it, only share YOUR tweet/link
  • If you take commissions and want to include a link to your web page in your entry tweet or otherwise plug your work that is TOTALLY COOL

Let me know if you have any questions! I CANNOT WAIT to see your entries!!!
