To all participants - thank you so much for your entries, especially the fanart entries. I love each and every single one of them, and they all have a special meaning to me.

Clockwork Hearts by Arvatzc
I love all the fanart I received for this contest,
every piece was unique, but I absolutely
adore all the details put into this picture!
There's so much attention to detail with the
original character references, and some added
extras as well, and overall so many little bits
and pieces about this picture that I just fell in
love with. I think this place is well deserved.
Arvatzc , keep an eye on your inbox, there's
a pair of steampunk goggles with your name on! :D

(Final Extension)


This is a Steampunk GIVEAWAY + COMPETITION! For the list of prizes and details on how to enter, keep scrolling and please read on patiently. ^^

I'm holding this contest + giveaway to celebrate and promote the launch of my new teen steampunk novel, Clockwork Hearts (Steampunk Syndicate#1), available on Amazon and Kobo.

Llamas 'round the Clock 

Synopsis: In a Steampunk future, the Clockwork Heart has saved the lives of many from a grim existence of heart disease. Everyone owes their freedom to the device's creator - SHINSEI - the most powerful man and inventor of their world.
Arthur Elmstone's lifelong dream comes true when he is recruited into the prestigious Inventor Fellowship program, hosted by SHINSEI, along with 500 other young inventors. But as their world around them begins to crumble, Arthur is suddenly burdened with the responsibility of their future; along with betrayal, new discoveries, and unexpected romance.

What others have said about Clockwork Hearts:
"I give it a 9/10."
"I stayed up until 2 a.m to finish it!"
"... I love these characters!"



 *Looking for more prize offerers!*

More prizes to be added!!!

The more characters, the better, but I'll honestly love anything you submit~ NO ECCHI PLEASE!

Hello DeviantArt, I'm Minnie.

I'm 18, from the UK, and I'm a freelance artist and illustrator and writer.

Art is what I love to do, and over the last couple of years, I've had experience as an artist and illustrator. You can check out my portfolio here: www.minniedreamer.daportfolio.… . I do many things.

Due to ill health and growing up, I'm now back as an artist for hire. Feel free to talk to me on dragonsinger[at], or send me a note here. I'm open for questions and inquiries, and I'd love to hear from you. :-)

Minnie x
