IY: Mah Plans 20/04

Football goal posts from OpenClipArtNice day today. I feel better than last night too, when my body was a bit achy from all the working and I couldn’t stop myself feeling guilty over not getting the work done because of fatigue.

This is a new day. A new week. A new start. I’ll go through how I did last week, but after that, my focus is all on this week.

Let’s see . . .

Actions Last Week

Write 10k words of ‘On A Knife Point’ (so total word count 82k)
Check. Just hit the 82k mark.

Order new ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’ proof
Done. With super fast shipping (ouch! my bank account!) it should be here within a couple more days.

Write this month’s newsletter and distribute
Sorted. Only two (I think) sections more to go of the current free story people are getting. Remember, if you want that story, or any of the other news that subscribers get, sign up for the mailing list today. All subscribers will be in with a chance to win a signed (if you like) copy of ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’ by the way.

Prepare for April Fox Bites
Hehee. I had fun, but it didn’t quite go as planned. I’m not sure if the football put people off, or our promo just wasn’t as good this time around, but the audience was a little thin. o.O In light of that our readings will get shifted to May instead.


Activities For The Week

The last big thing on my list for this month (that I can currently affect in any way) is the draft of ‘On A Knife Point.’ So my focus is that this week. Bring it all on!

  • Write 10k words of ‘On A Knife Point’ (so total word count 92k)
  • Check new ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’ proof for issues and decide on final release date


I’m crossing my fingers that this next proof will look the way I want. The biggest thing is the cover art. It’s so, so beautiful on screen, I really want the colour that’s finally printed to match the one on screen. You won’t get the full effect unless it does.

This is something I have no control over at all, so all I can do is wait and hope.

But, if that comes out well, then I’m ready to go and I’m loving the circular nature of that. Finishing the draft of the third novel just as the first one is ready for sale. Though that does mean I need to have something else in the wings for when ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’ is published.

Ha, thinking ahead, girlie. Thinking ahead.new ileandra signature,


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.
