Chronicles of the Goblin King, Book One
by Mike Phillips
Release date: March 1st, 2013
Published by: Self-published
Format: Paperback, eBook


It’s a world of magic and intrigue. It’s a world of betrayal and death. It’s the World Below.

Things are finally looking up for Mitch. He’s had a rough time lately, suffering an accident that left him flat broke and physically deformed. But now he’s in a new town with new friends and a new job. He even met a nice girl. Mitch doesn’t know it yet, but she’s trouble in a big way. Strange things, inexplicable things, start happening. Soon Mitch is pulled into a magical world where he must rescue his girlfriend and save the enchanted people of the World Below.
Think of it as Twilight for guys. It’s a horror story with a sense of humor. It’s a romantic comedy with goblins. Like Mirror Mask and Night Circus, it’s crazy but a good crazy. If all that hasn’t scared you away, check out a great mess of a modern fantasy novel, the World Below.
The World Below, the Urban/Dark Fantasy novel by Mike Phillips, is now available. Please considering having me as your guest for an interview, character interview, chapter reveal or guest post.
The World Below has had some great reviews. A few quotes from these reviews are listed below. I have also attached the first chapter. Hopefully, that will be enough to get you hooked. I know that you must be very busy, but if you are ever interested in reviewing the book, please let me know. I would love to send you a copy and hear what you think of my work.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Mike Phillips

Mike Phillips grew up on a small farm in West Michigan, living much the way people did at the turn of the century. Whether it was growing fruits and vegetables or raising livestock, Mike learned the value of hard work and responsibility at a young age. 

While his friends spent their summers watching reruns of bad sitcoms, Mike’s father gave him a very special gift. He turned off the television. With what was affectionately referred to as “the idiot box” no longer a distraction, Mike was left to discover the fantastic worlds that only exist in books. When not tending sheep, gardening, building furniture, chopping wood, or just goofing off, Mike spent his time reading. 

With all that hard work at home, Mike was always eager to go to school. He excelled as a student and went on to pursue a career in the sciences. Working as a Safety Engineer in the Insurance Industry, Mike soon became bored with the corporate grind. Writing engaged him like nothing else. After a few novels and numerous short stories, he thought getting published would be a pretty neat idea. And so, here it goes…
