Grand Prize: Signed copies of all three published Tales of Goldstone Wood! That's Heartless, Veiled Rose, and Moonblood, along with specialized bookmarks, Goldstone Wood magnets, pencils, and stickers.
Second Place: A signed copy of Moonblood.
How to Participate: Submit a work of your own original art. You can use any medium: Drawing, painting, sewing, pottery, photography, jewelry-making . . . anything!
Subject: Your art work needs to be Tales of Goldstone Wood inspired. It can be a character portrait, a scene from a story, or (in the case of pottery or sewing) thematically inspired by some aspect of one of the books.
Number of Submissions: You may submit as many pieces as you like. Each one increases your chances of being a winner!
How to Submit: Send a clear and detailed photograph (or several photographs) of your art to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Display: Your art will be displayed in a series of posts on this blog, along with your name, age, medium, and the title of your piece. It will also be featured in an album on my Facebook author page.
Winner Selection: All submissions will be judged by a panel of three (author not included!) according to effort (did you take time over this, or dash off a doodle?), theme (is this Goldstone Wood inspired or just a random picture?), and originality (If you submit stick-figures, those had better be some interesting and detailed stick-figures!). All ages and media will be judged together. Judging will be based on a point system, not artwork against artwork, so that artists of varied skill-levels and media may feel free to participate!
Deadline: April 24th. All submissions will be judged that week, and the winner announced on May 1st.
Be original! Be creative! Have fun!
