IY: Mah Plans 17/08/15


If I can upload my pictures, I’ll do so, but I’ve been in Skegness all day and it’s lovely out there. I’ve been once before and that was (not long) before The Sprogs were born, so it was lovely to go back and remind myself there are beaches with sand in this country. 😉

Actions Last Week

~Perform last few cover art for tweaks for ‘Episode One’ of ‘Dead And Alive.’
Dooooooooooooone! And so pleased with it too! Like nothing I’ve ever created in PS before, so I’m feeling quite proud too.
Wait, have I shown you yet? Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaail!

Season One, Episode One: Reunion

checking off feedback~Release ‘Episode One’ of ‘Dead And Alive’
Eeeyup! All sorted and the teaser is out too. I’m still waiting for Amazon to update the price to £0 (which is what the teaser should be) but they’re taking their time over it. Hopefully not too long as it’s currently priced the same as the full episode; that’s as low as Amazon will allow me to go. -_- *sigh* Self publishing eh? Who’d do it? 😉

~Send x3 review requests for ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’
Done. Phew! I think, at the end of the month, I’m going to give this a rest and let some of the existing requests filter through. I’m just not happy enough that the return on this exercise is worth the time spent.

Activities For This Week

  • Send x3 review requests for ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’
  • Work through feedback on first section of ‘Dead And Alive, Episode Two,’ fresh from the PWG
  • Work through the rest of ‘Episode Two’ in preparation for reading at PWG


I’m suitably distracted from ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’. Haven’t thought about it all with all the work I’m doing on ‘Dead And Alive.’ And reading the start of ‘Episode Two’ on Saturday was very encouraging. One member in particular showed enthusiasm that had me skipping in my seat (thanks honey!), because she’s not too far off the mark with her thoughts on where this scene leads and the point of writing the characters in this very specific manner.

This makes me super-keen to keep reading at the group and super-keen to keep writing.

I know I shouldn’t have, but I outlined Season Two on Friday . . . I couldn’t stop myself! I know exactly how I want Season Two to start and end and I could start writing it now. Like . . . right now.

Raven might have something to say about that, however. It’s her turn with DSB right now.
So! . . . if any of you hear me talk about drafting Season Two of ‘Dead And Alive’ before Raven has finished her draft of ‘Slippers & Chains: Three,’ be sure to give me a nudge and a ‘what the hell?’ sort of look, okay?

But I can—and will!—talk about it. Lots.

In fact, a lot of my weekly evening updates will probably discuss progress with later episodes of Season One. As it stands, I could release these monthly rather than every two months. We’ll just have to see how the rest of my life goes before I commit to that. ^_^

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.
