Hello all!!

I am currently working on my third book, Sahara's Plight which takes
place on the great plains of Africa.  Here is the short description:

"Growing up on the plains of Africa is anything but easy.  Sahara faces
lions, rogue male cheetah, and an encroaching human population.
With space a valuable and limited resource, Sahara must fight
tooth and nail to survive the harsh African wilderness."

Sahara's Plight (full cover) by skydancer792007

I am holding a competition for the best drawings/digital
art, etc. to showcase at the end of the book.  All credit will be given
to the artists with links to their websites or portfolios.  The pictures
are a way to expose my readers (mostly children) to a wide variety
of art as well as information about nature and conservation.  Proceeds
from my books go toward conservation efforts as donations with a list
of the families who have purchased a collection set containing the
book and collectable plush.  Working together with artists allows them
to get exposure for their work as well as reach children who enjoy
the artwork.  There will be three levels of winners:

First Place (1 winner): an autographed copy of Haji's Fight For
Freedom and Timber's Gambit (the first two books), an honorable
mention in the book and on my DA profile, and one month
premium membership

Second Place (4 winners): autographed copy of Timber's Gambit
and an honorable mention in book and on my DA profile.

Third Place (4 winners):  autographed copy of Haji's Fight For
Freedom and an honorable mention in book and on my DA profile.

Additionally, every winner will receive an autographed copy of
Sahara's Plight once it is released.  


1.  All artwork needs to be cheetah-oriented;  the main character
is a female cheetah named Sahara.  Her brother is a king
cheetah named N'dugu.

2.  Backgrounds are allowed but not required.  

3.  Absolutely no mature art; this is a book for children ages 8-12.

4.  No Anthropomorphic animals; all animals must be natural
although some human features (such as eyebrows and lashes)
are allowed.

5.  If using a background, animals must be in natural setting; I'm
focusing on keeping cheetahs wild.

If you are unsure about something or have any questions, you can
post them in the comments section.  Chances are, someone else has
the same question.  For examples of what I'm looking for, you can
follow this link to my gallery and see the artwork from Timber's Gambit:…

The competition will run until July 1, 2014

Have fun and good luck!

The rules of the group are as followed

*You can post want you want as long as it is based on a mythos,YOU made.

*No porn, or for that matter anything violating deviantart rules.

*No fanart. That is self explained. This group is made for original ideas. It's not at fanart can't be good it would no make sense in a group for original stories.

*Any kind of art  can be posted, Not just writing. Yes sounds weird but  you can tell a story with a picture, odd huh. So yes if it tells a story or is original character you can post it here. 

Although we have made a fan fiction folder.  If you have any more questions, just ask and I'll see if I can answer them for you.
