Draw Me A Harduk

A New Contest in Honor of Romenel's June Launch:

This is a fun one, inspired by our friend Morgan and the desire to create a fan art page for my site. From bits and pieces of description in Marya, she drew a picture of a not-terribly-pleased Marya riding a harduk. Her vision (which I'll withhold during the contest so we don't influence your vision) may not match yours.

So here we go:

The prize:

An e-copy of your very own of
Romenel: Voyage Into Twilight (with that gorgeous Missy Lyon's cover)
The rules:

  • Read Marya. In order to know what a harduk is, this is a must.
  • Draw me a harduk. This could be a generic harduk, or a specific one (Windflower, Moondancer, whichever one you please.)
  • Artistic talent is not a must to win. I'll be picking a random winner from the entries. This is just for fun.
  • Please specify if you'd rather not see your artwork up on the fan art page once the contest ends.
  • email your image to me (jpeg's are nice, but I'll take anything) to
The duration:

Send me your drawings, collages, photoshopped images, etc. between now (5/22) and June 25th.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

  1. How fun! :)

    I'm not much of an artist--unlike some of my talented peers here--but I may give this a shot.

    Thanks for making the deadline a month out.

  2. PS Sandra, what's the release date? We need to get this on the SFR Brigade calendar.

  3. Great idea, Sandra! Good Luck! Here's to many photos and lots of sales!

  4. Thanks, Kaye!

    Laurie - it still looks like it's on the schedule for a 6/3 release.

  5. Great! I've got it on the calendar.
