Seven Realms Fan Art!

I love fan art! For one thing, I admire those who are graphically gifted because I am not. I paint pictures with words. For another, fan art is a great illustration of the way in which readers participate in story. Every reader creates her own image of the characters in a story--and they are all correct. I believe that is why we are so often disappointed in movies that are made of the books we love! I also don't usually like it when characters are depicted on book covers--it never quite matches my own person vision. 
DeviantArt is a great place to find all kinds of art, including fan art. I've discovered that there is a fan page and gallery for my books on the site, including art for the Seven Realms and the Heir Chronicles.
Here are Raisa and Han by =leabharlann 

Another artist who began with my Heir Chronicles series but has recently done some sketches of Seven Realms characters is artist ThornZenithar (Kai Samms).

            Here’s Han Alister by ebalance… 

To see more fabulous art of all kinds, visit DeviantArt!

There is a newer picture of Han which I would like you to put up, please. What I mean is the picture is well... nicer, and I put that scar on which is missing in the original picture I said you could use... this is Erin/Ebalance by the way.
And here is a better link to it on DA, although I also sent you a personal e-mail with the full version you can download to your computer. NO BUGS OR WIZARD CURSES. I PROMISE!!!

– HUGS, your adoring Fan, Erin
