First Annual Natalie Wright Fan Art Contest!

The Regina from The Makers by Natalie Wright
If you've been following this blog for a while then you know that I go to a lot of comic cons. A LOT! Of course I sell my books and hand out nifty swag to readers. But I'm always thinking about new things that I can display in my six feet of retail space.

An artist friend suggested handing out fan art of my characters with free chapters and it was like BINGO! That would be so cool.

Imagine it: Your artwork being seen my hundreds, nay thousands of people. The adulation of the masses over the bad-assedness of your mad artist skills.

Now imagine that you also get a cash prize for said mad art skills. Even better, huh?

So without further ado, I hereby announce my first annual Fan Art Contest!

Want to play? Here are the rules, details, fine print, etc.:
