Ilyon Chronicles Website Overhaul + Giveaway!

First of all, happy 2018! I didn’t even have a chance to write a New Year post. First I was out of town on New Year’s Eve weekend because my brother got married (yay!) and then I came down with my third (or is it fourth?) bout of the flu this winter. So awful.

Anyways, in between all of that, I worked on giving my Ilyon Chronicles website a complete overhaul. It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a while now and finally made time for it. I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I even updated the Ilyon Chronicles character quiz and made two new ones: Which Ilyon guy is right for you? and Which Ilyon girl is right for you? Yes, I didn’t want to leave my male fans out. ;) Here is a fun “before and after” picture of the home page of the website.

    Also, just wanted to let you know that I caught a typo on the "looking for merchandise?" paragraph. Look at the word "straight." :)

  19. The website is much lighter, brighter and accessible for some who may not see too well- not me but others. Just one thing...if needed could the shirts run a little bigger-3x?. I love the “excuse” shirt LOL
