Six Reasons to Revise and Re-Release Your Book
Several years ago I met a guy at a writer’s conference who had a 400-page science fiction book that he had published five years ago. He said “When it comes to book promotion, I wish I knew then what I know now. I think this book could have done considerably better than it did initially.” I suggested to him at the time that he maybe consider re-releasing it. Update the cover, maybe modify some of the content. And, I also suggested that he take this 400-page book and divide it into four segments. Because genre fiction readers love a series, I suggested that if his book fits this model, that he should consider dividing the book into four 100-page segments. He could in turn release them as a series on Amazon and then bundle the entire four-book saga. A book series is a great book promotional tool, and also a great visibility booster on Amazon.
