Now, I don't feel as though I'm deceiving anyone, and as I've updated my videos, I've made certain to add a slide that also contains the previously published title. There's a benefit in having this fresh start. It sort of makes a more even playing field for me as an author. I've long considered that Amazon plays unfair when they refuse to take down the advertisements for outdated POD versions of my books. Their reasoning: if they remove the book information, they would be denying customers who have purchased that particular copy the right to sell it as used on their site. Of course, it didn't seem to bother them that my new, revised version competes with the old versions. Now, this doesn't bother me nearly as much because the title is different as is the cover. It's clearly a newly-revised edition. Heck, even the big guys do this. Let me just add that going through an entire book and chucking out all the amateur writing issues you've since learned to avoid is not an easy task. It's almost as difficult as writing the book all over again. As authors, we learn new "rules" every day.
So, one of my best-selling books, Sisters in Time, is now released via the KDP program as Time Tantrums. Here's the updated video featuring the new cover art. Books We Love, Ltd., does a great job for their authors, and I'm very pleased to be part of their team. Check out my authors page after you watch this:
Oh...and since I had a few days since I scheduled this post, I decided to come back and add the new video for Ellie's Legacy, previously published as Sparta Rose and voted the best 2009 Historical at Love Romance Cafe.
