Hi, all! I suppose I’ve never gotten around to posting an official policy on fanworks, mostly because a) I’m a n00b author and never had to think about it before, and b) it’s not like there are scads of people out there just waiting on tenterhooks for me to bless their Nahadoth-Hosts-The-Muppet-Show multipart AU crossover, so it didn’t matter. But in general I’m pro-fanstuff so long as it’s created in the spirit of sharing and not profit — though for legal reasons I don’t read fanfiction. I can’t draw a straight line, though, so fanart is less of a problem. I won’t send it to the folks at Orbit so they’ll use it on my next cover or anything like that — they’ve got perfectly good artists on staff, and I like those folks’ work — but if I have time, I’ll look, and if I like it, I’ll say so.
Anyway, I’m sharing this because it’s something a little different. Nubia Palacios is a professional artist building her portfolio of fantasy concept art, and she asked me if she could use the Inheritance Trilogy characters as the subjects of her latest work. I liked the result so much that I asked her if I could share it here. So here’s her depiction of Yeine!
