Introducing the Hidden Huntress Fan Art Competition!!


Hello everyone! Today I'm super excited to announce the Hidden Huntress Fan Art Competition presented to you by Angry Robot Books!


Hidden Huntress, book two of the Malediction Trilogy, was released on June 2nd, and now that you've all had a chance to read it, we're really, really excited to share with you our new fan art competition!

We all have a vision in our head of the Malediction world, but what does it look like to you? Can you imagine Tristan, in all of his handsome glory? Or how about the gorgeous glass gardens hidden away in Trollus? We'd like you to put pen to paper and show us your idea of Danielle L. Jensen's rich and beautiful world.

The competition will be hosted by four different blogs and each blog will have a different topic for you to draw! The blogs and topics are:

BookCatPin - Witches (including Cecile)
The Reader & The Chef - Trolls
The Social Potato - Humans
The Qwillery
 - Architecture (Trollus, Trianon, the castle and the opera house)



Rules:
1. This competition is International and will run until midnight PDT July 12th.

2. Any type of artwork will qualify (drawings, paintings, etc.).
3. Please make sure you submit your work accordingly. For example, all witch artworks will come to me, here at BookCatPin.
4. You can post your artwork anywhere (Twitter, Instagram, etc.) but please make sure you leave me a link to it in the comment section below. I need to see it for it to count :)
    a) If you're not on any social media platforms, you can email me your artwork (my contact info is on the sidebar) and with your permission, I will share it for everyone to see~
5. There is no limit to how many times you can enter the competition, so if you fancy trying your hand at, say, both Marc and the opera house, then submit two entries to the relevant blog. They will both count.
6. Please note that your artwork may be used in promotional activity.
7. Any artwork deemed offensive will be disqualified from the competition.
8. This is not a rule but please try to use the hashtag #HHArtComp ! You can chat with other artists about their inspiration!
 
What's even more awesome is Danielle will be doing a video reveal of the winners when the time comes! Here's a message from her to get you motivated!
 
"I am insanely excited about The Malediction Trilogy art contest! There is no greater compliment than knowing my stories have inspired someone's artwork, and I LOVE when people share those images with me. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with."

Prizes (provided by the publisher):

The winner will receive a signed copy of the completed Hidden Huntress manuscript, a personal Skype chat with Danielle L. Jensen and a shiny Robot trophy for their shelf!
Three runners up - one from each of the other blogs - will win a robot trophy.
All winners will be entitled to a free ebook ARC copy of the third book in the trilogy before it is published in 2016.


Now, here's a little info on the first two books in the trilogy to hopefully help get you brainstorming :)

Goodreads Summary:
For those who have loved Seraphina and Graceling comes another truly fabulous fantasy...

For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.

Goodreads Summary:
Sometimes, one must accomplish the impossible.

Beneath the mountain, the king’s reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cécile has escaped the darkness of Trollus, but she learns all too quickly that she is not beyond the reach of the king’s power. Or his manipulation.

Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. But by day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for five hundred years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high.

To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. But the witch is a clever creature. And Cécile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted…

Danielle was born and raised in Calgary, Canada. At the insistence of the left side of her brain, she graduated in 2003 from the University of Calgary with a bachelor’s degree in finance. But the right side of her brain has ever been mutinous; and in 2010, it sent her back to school to complete an entirely impractical English literature degree at Mount Royal University and to pursue publication. Much to her satisfaction, the right side shows no sign of relinquishing its domination.
