#23: Anniversaries, Sales, and Bookseller Deals, Oh My!

Happy Sunday, little vamps!

If you're new here, welcome to my weekly blog! This is the place where I'll be summing up my week in all aspects of my life, not just writing! And if you're a regular visitor to my site, welcome back! :)

It's already the 3rd of June, and I'm swamped with ideas and hella big announcements! But I'll hold of my excitement until I get to the very end, alright? Good.

So this past week has been.. a mixed bag. I mean, as far as family/friends issues go, there have been close to none! Sadly, though, I've dealt with a lot more anxiety than usual (seriously, who knew??) and that's led to random panic attacks and just overall sadness and despair... I know that sounds weird; to have so many cool things I wanna write and draw, but feeling incapable of achieving them. I don't mean to sulk, but I just wanted to get that out there. If that's not what you're here for (which it probably isn't), then I apologize for the shift in mood. It's been one of those weeks.. anyway!

Onto the good stuff!

First off, this Wednesday (June 6th) marks my 4th year on Wattpad, the first official site (besides FictionPress and Quizilla) that I posted my stories on. :) I consider Wattpad my humble beginning of sorts, and to celebrate another year on the site, I'll be hosting a live Q&A over on my Twitter (link below!) ALL DAY LONG! So, if you have a question about my personal life, my writing life, or anything in between, please send your questions to me, AND make sure to use the hashtag #Watt4 so I don't miss it! ^^

Secondly, this Thursday (June 7th) - yes, the day right after my Wattpad Anniversary - marks the anniversary of when I posted The Blood Diamond on Wattpad for the very first time! Very big deal, if you ask me~ Now, the reason I'm bringing this up is because, on that day, the ebook version of The Blood Diamond over on Amazon will be only $.99 (that's 99 cents!) Yes, that's RIGHT! For 24 hours only, The Blood Diamond will be at a reduced price, if just to celebrate the occasion :) If you're already following me on Twitter, I'll be sure to remind everybody about the sale when we grow closer to the day~!

Lastly - and this is probably the most exciting of my announcements! - the people over at Inkitt (my publisher) have been chatting it up with Barnes & Noble to hopefully gain distribution rights for my first book, The Blood Diamond! That means that, if all goes to plan, my book will be sold in-stores~ I can hardly imagine it, but it's been my dream as an aspiring author to see my books in local bookstores and all that. Here's the catch, though: Barnes & Noble needs to gauge just how successful my book might be in-stores. Now, according to my publishing agent, the process starts tomorrow (Monday) and will go throughout June and maybe even July. Now, in order for B&N to accept and distribute my book U.S.-wide, there needs to be a lot of people requesting my book.

So, this is my mission for you all: if you have yet to buy my book, please consider going to your local Barnes & Noble and requesting a copy. If you’ve already purchased my book, please consider spreading the word! The more people that request a copy in-store, the more likely B&N will eventually distribute The Blood Diamond statewide, and maybe even worldwide! I have no control over what you decide to do in the long run, but if you genuinely wish to support me, or you really are a fan of my books and would love to read more in the near future, please head over to your local Barnes & Noble and ask for The Blood Diamond by RJ City. Again, if you already own the book, tell your family and friends! Spread the word! The more, the better!

I've already been talking for way too long, and I'll more than likely make official posts for all of the announcements throughout this week over my numerous social media platforms.

See you all next Sunday, little vamps!
