What a day. -_- I feel a bit raw. On the bright side I’ve got a lot done this week and I’m pleased with the results. Wanna see?

Actions Last Week

~Complete editing on another chapter of the remaining secondary timeline

. . . nuff said.

checking off feedback~Read through first chunk of ‘Dead or Alive’ in full in preparation for deep edits
Not only have I read through my notes from feedback sessions with PWG but I’m two thirds of the way through deep edits. Last night I pretty much just thought ‘Fuck it . . . let’s just do this shizz.’ And away I went!
Feels pretty good to know this first part will be ready to go soon. I’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about exactly how I want to release these stories. I’ll chat about that in my monthly round up next week. 😉

~Make two review requests (in person/via email/via blogs/via strangers) for ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’
Yep, two made and as well as that I had a promo post plus a review from the extremely kind, Rachel Lawrence. Find the promo here and the review here. Heh, that put a smile on my face today when nothing else seemed to. 😉

Activities For This Week

Wheeelp . . . if I plan to meet the goals for July I need to get a bit of a wiggle on. The big stuff is done, but now it’s the nitty-gritty.

  • Complete deep edits on ‘Dead or Alive’ and leave to rest
  • Transfer ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’ to Kindle in preparation for full read through
  • Finalise cover art for first instalment of ‘Dead or Alive.’


generic calendar with mountains from OpenClipArt‘Dead or Alive’ is a fun project. I’ve never done anything like this before. I will give you all the details next month, but for now, know this: I’m working on the cover. And I’m asking for your help. If you’ve not seen this video yet, please take a moment to look at the mock ups I’ve created for different parts of the ‘Dead or Alive’ serial.

I need to know what covers/images/tones/fonts/atmospheres you like best. Not knowing anything about the book – as is often the case when you browse – which of these covers would you pick up for a closer look? Which of these designs would draw you in to read the back blurb? Which of them speaks to you of a genre you may enjoy reading?

Any and all comments eagerly welcomed and very much appreciated!

Yeeeeah, that’s pretty much it. Catch you next week lovelies. ^_^

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.

  1. Glad I could help! 🙂


  2. Hello, are you using invisible ink? I can’t see your blog correctly? There are some huge spaces between the text and no covers etc to look at here?

    No video or mock ups?
