Celebrating the Publication Birth of Royal Bastards! #Giveaway

Royal Bastards Final Cover

It’s a most special day in the publishing and book related world as Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts has been born! Game of Thrones, YA, and fantasy/adventure enthusiasts rejoice; the wait is over! You can find out more in my blog post, exclusive extract of the novel and Q&A with Andrew Shvarts himself.

To celebrate, we’ve devised a contest for all of you lucky people out there. All you have to do is sketch an illustration of what you think a SKARRLING looks like. The best drawing and closest likeness to the creature will WIN a brand new copy of the book! We give you but one hint to help you along the way… 

*Skarrling’s are said to make ‘a skittering clicking sound, like someone running their nails on a pane of glass…

Please use your imagination, we don’t expect world class illustrations, just have loads of fun and be super creative!! Notable imaginative effects wins points!

Our team found the contest so much fun that they thought they’d join in and have a go! Look below for some inspiration – I’m sure yours will be much better and a whole lot more menacing. We want SCARY!! 

ALL monsters
