Life Motto & Miniquotable

This week's miniquotable is brought to you by Primrose Goodwing, and her mother, Rose Pogonia:

This idea ties into my favorite quotation by Erica Jong, and also the motto I try to live by: "Courage is the only magic worth having."

What is your motto?

The Alternate Iffy Magic Cover

Today I have a special surprise: the other cover for Iffy Magic! This is the gorgeous rough draft for the runner up:

While I ultimately went with the official cover because I liked the defiant upheld chin and ethereal wing expanse, I still think the alternate by Audrey Bagley is lovely, too.

Which one is your favorite?

I've decided to start a new category for Iffy Magic fun: miniquotables! I will be choosing quotations from the book to pair with pictures and share online.

Please enjoy this week's batch of shiny sentences:


I would love to see your Iffy Magic miniquotables, too. Take your favorite quote from the book and paste it onto a picture you've taken, and then email your masterpiece to me at for a chance to be featured! Feel free to reuse quotes with new pictures.

*Here is the blank canvas for the next miniquotable!

The Original Glass Dryad

Stelliferous artist Audrey Bagley created this version of the Glass Dryad first. While she ultimately decided to redesign the tree witch, I still love the rowan berry jewels and mystical oriental charm of this piece.

The Glass Dryad has very noticeable black splinter teeth in this image. Historically, black teeth were viewed as a hallmark of beauty in Japanese culture. "Ohaguro," the Japanese custom for "dyeing one's teeth black," was popular for hundreds of years up until the Meiji era.

I think the eerie magic of the Tree Witch is evident in both images!
