Calling all artists!

I have a favor. I need a sketch. A fortress/castle sketch to be more specific.

Here’s the deal, while editing Samara’s Peril the other day, I decided to draw a simple diagram/layout of the fortress in the book on graph paper to get a better sense of the location. This got me thinking about how nice it would be to include a sketch of the fortress in the book so that readers could better imagine it. Problem is, I’m not much of an artist.

So I’m putting out a rather last minute call for anyone who might like to do the sketch for me. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. I’m thinking something on the order of these sketches:

I would obviously provide all of the details of the fortress. The sketch would go in both the ebook and paperback with clear credit to the artist. I would also need it by the end of April. If you want to give it a go or know someone who might, just contact me through email and we can discuss it. (Email button is in the sidebar.)
