Fan Art Contest: Dragons In a Winter Clearing

Every Friday a new piece of artwork from the fanart contest will be posted on this website!

Winner: Stephanie Mendoza — This one I think might be a story about Qian (Temeraire’s mother), and the decision to send away one of her twin eggs.

Each of these weekly pieces of art will be a part of a small, Subterranean Press hardcover with a 16-page full color gallery, and it will include a total of 32 pieces, with about 20,000 words total of new fiction included. I will probably end up combining and writing slightly longer stories for more than one piece, but each one will at least get a drabble’s-worth to its name!

Sub Press will produce a limited edition of 400 leatherbound copies signed by me (probably around $45), and somewhere between 1000-2000 hardcovers (around $20-25). And I will eventually be putting up the stories themselves online at least once the book sells out, so if these are out of your range, do not fear! You will get to read the stories! The book should hopefully be out before the end of this year, but we’ll see.

Until next week!

A really nice picture.
And I really would like to hear about Qian and the situation in China. It must have been a pretty difficult decision to send a celestial egg to a foreigner.

Actually, that’s Mei and Temeraire. It was for the Temeraire valentine’s day contest for the Temeraire fan club on deviantart.com, but your idea about Qian and the eggs is better! The story about Qian sounds extremely interesting and romantic. I seriously can’t wait for the book!!
