The release of With Blood Upon the Sand is just four short weeks away. You can pre-order the book now, including signed copies from my online store.

I have some ARCs to give away as well! I’m giving away six ARCs total: three in the US and three in the UK. This is a normal lottery-style giveaway that I’m running over at Reddit’s /r/fantasy. Click here to enter that giveaway.

But I also wanted to do something fun, so I decided to host a fan art contest for another copy of the book. An art contest, you say? Tell me more! Well, okay!

To enter the contest, you can:

  • Create a piece of art, be it:
    • A copy of Twelve Kings in Sharakhai in a strange place (the stranger the better, but please be safe!)
    • Cosplay
    • Hand-drawn art
    • A lego-city of Sharakhai
    • A sand sculpture <— that’d be pretty awesome, actually
    • Digital art
    • An ode to Çeda as sung by you while playing your xylophone <—would also be pretty awesome
    • Any other thing you can think of
  • Post a digital copy of the art somewhere on your favorite social network: Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, or hell, even the ghost town once known as Google+.
  • Send me a link to the post at bloodcontest@quillings.com with subject “WITH BLOOD UPON THE SAND ART CONTEST” in the subject line. Please include a shipping address to use if you win. Your address will not be used for any other purpose.
  • The contest ends at midnight (GMT-6) on January 27th, 2017. Winners will be announced the following week.
  • By entering this contest, you agree to allow me to share your art on my website and social network feeds. All rights to the art remain with you.
  • The contest is open worldwide.
  • Multiple entries allowed!


  1. One grand prize will be awarded: an Advanced Reading Copy of With Blood Upon the Sand. (Note that due to the timing, it may be a final copy, not an ARC.)
  2. Two runner-up winners will each be awarded one copy of Twelve Kings in Sharakhai.
  3. Three additional winners will each be awarded one ebook copy of The Winds of Khalakovo.

Have fun, everyone!
