Happy Sunday, little vamps!
If you're new here, welcome to my bi-weekly blog! This is the place where I'll be summing up any progress I've made in any and all aspects of my life, not just writing! And if you're a regular visitor to the site, welcome back! :)
Things are FINALLY happening! I've gotten the rights back to my books and I'm not longer with Inkitt! Of course... I can still go back in the future but.. I don't think I will. It's not that I hate Inkitt; I just don't agree with what they're doing with their authors, especially recently. The constant waiting between emails, it just felt like a real lack of communication. I tried my best, but I'm still thankful that I was able to experience being published and it's only the beginning, really!
Now that I have the rights to my books back, I can now pitch my series to new publishers in hopes of getting another deal that might benefit me better in the long run! So for now... editing for The Wolfsbane Ruby is on hold. I'm focusing all of my effort and attention - at least as far as writing goes - with my first book, The Blood Diamond! I have a small but AWESOME beta reading team who - as of today - received the first chunk of story to give me feedback on! Hell yeah!
Lastly, I wanted to mention that I will most likely be publishing under a different pen name this time around. I've been RJ City since my high school days and honestly? I don't like it anymore. It's not ME. It's too confusing when trying to organize my books with others. So from now on (and starting later this week when I talk about it on my social media platforms), I'm going to go by simply Rachel Joy. Which, fun fact, is just my first and middle name! My last name is still way too long and a mouthful to use. But I've been going by Rachel Joy on my Twitter for almost a year now and I honestly love it! And I hope you feel the same, reader! <3 The only downside to this change is my branding on social media.. but in about a week or so, everything should be fixed! I just thought you should know about these kinds of changes!
It's kinda sad that this is the last (and ONLY) blog of February, but I promise to have something new to say every other Sunday from here on out <3 Even if it's just to share fanart or just my characters in general, I don't mind! I hope you have a great rest of your day!
I'll see you all next time, little vamps~
