FanArt Contest: Midnight Reading

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

Midnight Reading by Maarta Laiho

“This is either a moment in Laurence and Temeraire’s valley in Australia, or an alternate universe where Laurence is a wizard (the lamp somehow feels “magical” to me!)” — Naomi

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.

To be notified when this book goes on sale, join the Sub Press newsletter HERE!

Until next week!

    I love every thing about your novels does the 8th book have a title yet if so can you reveal it or is it secret.

    I love how small Laurence is and that the focus is the how large Temeraire is compared to him. The composition and lighting is very well done. :D

    Love this image, I think it captures the intimacy you only get between friends you’d die for but much more happily live for.
