Do you have an artistic talent? An eye for design? Gennifer Albin, author of the Crewel series, announced on August 16th that she will be hosting a tattoo design contest. Albin is looking for her own techprint tattoo – “a scar in the shape of flowing hourglass” containing a small code.
A techprint is Albin’s own creation, featured in her book, Crewel.
“Adelice, here!” My father shoves me toward another hole as Amie and Mom disappear into the passage, but before I enter he grabs my wrist and presses cold metal near my vein. A second later heat sears the tender skin. When he releases my arm, I draw the spot up to my mouth, trying to blow off the burning.
“What . . .” I search his face for a reason for the techprint, and looking back down, I see the pale shape of a flowing hour- glass marking the spot. It’s barely visible on my fair skin.
Crewel follows Adelice, a young girl with a talent to shape reality. Controlling other people’s fates isn’t exactly what she wants but she has no choice – but she won’t go that willingly. Adelice has one hour to escape her own fate before she’s forced to design the fate of others.
Labeled as a “Scholarship Contest”, the winner will walk away a $100 cash scholarship as well as his or her’s design tattooed on the author’s hand.
Two runners up will receive signed copies of Altered, the upcoming sequel to Albin’s Crewel.
