Publishing a new version, new cover, new title

Postby DotIsXts » Tue Mar 28, 2017 12:20 am

Hi,
Has anyone re-published a book with a new cover, new title and under the real author's name and not the previous pen name?
My self-published book was published under a non-exclusive contract and I want to re-launch through a new company.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
Thank you

I'm interested in reading the replies to your question, DotIsXts. I'm in the same boat.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

Just personal opinion, but if I'd already read the first version, and then bought the new one, I'd feel cheated. It seems deceptive to me.

Thank you for all your comments. The ethical question was my greatest concern.
Would a line on the new cover, such as: "This book previously published under the title…" be considered enough advice for new readers?
The ISBN would be different.
