Jittery, Jumping Nerves

Aww, hell!

The last time I was this nervous, I’m pretty certain I was about to go into labour. Yeah. I can’t think of a point since then comparable to this.


LARP is fun. LARP is good. So why am I bricking it?

Dave has made arrangements to take me there and bring me back, so even my time away from (all) my boys is less than I originally thought it would be. I’m packed. My costume is done (I’ll post pictures of when I’m fully made up, including horns and make up, when I get back), so what’s the problem? Who knoooooows.

Okay. Let’s talk about something else!

The final preparations for Vicki & Lara’s release are going swimmingly! I just saw the huge chunk of money disappear from my account for the ISBNs. Heh, I should be more frightened of that, but that excitement is doing a good job of balancing out LARP fear. I’ve also got one and a half of the next stories down.

Momentum, that’s the trick. Keep it going so you don’t falter in the middle, because once you do (or at least once I do) it’s hard to pick it up again.

Cover art is on the way. I can’t wait to show you all. I’m so pleased with it and how different it is from other examples out there. Believe me… I’ve been researching this… it’s all boobs, bums and thighs. It gets boring. Even with Raven at the helm of this one, it’s going to be more tasteful than that, as will the whole series.

I won’t be around for the weekend, so I’ll check in on you all when I’m back. Wish me luck, don’t forget to leave a comment if you want entry to the competition, and, in the meantime, enjoy this piccy of part of my kit.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.
