If you're good at something, never do it for free.

Since I [still] suck at catching up on everyone's blogs (I know, I'm a bad friend T.T Pray forgive me; you fine people deserve much better), I thought I'd try to give a little something back to all y'all. In honor of both the upcoming Book 2 (A Tale of Fairies), which is currently being illustrated by the supremely talented Elk
sneak peak of chapter 6....
and in honor of the 2nd-ish edition (and lower priced!!) Underwood, which recently went up on Amazon, I'm doing a GIVEAWAY.

....which means FREE STUFF. I am giving away TEN copies of Underwood, and each one will come with a Goblin Market goodie bag. To make this giveaway a bit more fun, I'm making it a kind of scavenger hunt contest. 

To enter to win a free book, simply send me a picture of something magical. It can be anything, and "magical" in the sense that it makes you happy (your pet, a sunrise, the ocean, your favourite band, your favourite artist, etc etc.). You can email it to, or if you're friends with me on Facebook you can message me or post it on my wall. The first ten responders get a book and a goodie bag. 

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I'm headed down the shore tomorrow, for a sort-of-long weekend. (Boss would only give me Friday and half of Monday off, and since I can't possibly go down the shore with dark roots, I have to get my hair done tomorrow [Friday], which means I won't get to Long Beach Island until like 2 or 3.00 in the afternoon.) Looking forward to relaxing by the sea! 

Love you all. You're all brilliant shining stars in my internet sky. ♥


  1. Have fun and be sure to let your hair down!


  2. I love these illustrations and I hope that you have a lot of fun at the shore, relaxing by the sea sounds kind of perfect right now since it's Summer and everything so have fun Mich!

    Don't worry too much about our blogs either, especially mine. You were a good friend to help me out with my CV so you're a good blogging buddy to me at least.

  3. We love you too Mich, you can come and go as you please :) I foresee this as being one internet giveaway I won't win. Which is sad because I've entered two and won two. I just don't have anything all that magical around me.

  4. You've accomplished so much, Mich. You're so creative and you inspire me so much.

    Have fun in L.I!

  5. Sat here drawing right now, as it happens ;)
    I've been terrible about keeping up with blogs too. Meh. I guess that's a nice thing about blogs: people can come and go as they please, and when someone resurfaces after a mini void it's all "it's YOOOUUU!!!!*insert massive smiley*"

    p.s.I would enter this giveaway, but I don't think I need to. I already gots my Goblin treasure, Oo Arg!

    ^ no idea why the pirate speak. Goblins speak like pirates? Or maybe just the treasure link?
    Take care, missus.

  6. I have trouble catching up on blogs too! Takes me hours! Just keep blogging :D xx

  7. Just keep posting, ok? I haven't been up to anything worth reading about.

    Look after yourself <3

  8. I'm glad you also believe that cats are indeed magical creatures. No one but other crazy cat ladies seem to believe me.
    Congratulations on your book as well.

  9. You? The Third Reich? YEAH RIGHT!

    Of course, we all know that if you ever decided to take over the world you'd make Fascists look like half-baked amateurs at the World Domination game. Remember that with great power comes great responsibility :p

    Love you too. I hope you're ok. Kia kaha <3

  10. Hey I was gone for 3 weeks and didn't visit anyone's blogs. I'm not better.

    Good luck to everyone with the giveaways, I'll pass this time, my girlfriend is getting me to read Game of Thrones.

  11. We all suck at catching up on blogs. It's hard unless you have no job, no life, and only follow 5 blogs (no, no, and no). Good luck with the giveaway! It looks awesome!

  12. Beautiful art work, and have fun at sea!
