Questions about Writing 2nd Edition

Postby Williamhawk » Thu Dec 21, 2017 6:41 am

I'm thinking about writing a 2nd edition for one of my non-fiction books (I want to update my self-publishing guide to include a new chapter on book marketing), and I have a few questions:

1) Once I publish the 2nd edition, should I immediately remove the original edition from Amazon/other sites or leave it there and drop the price to 99 cents (with a NOTE at the top indicating this is the old edition)? Seems like having both editions available for sale will increase visibility and keeping the old version for sale means that listing can retain its book reviews (which are good).

2) Should I wait until my original version has been on the market for at least a year before publishing the 2nd edition? Seems like the longer I leave my original version on the market, the more likely I'll earn back the costs to write/self-publish that edition. But maybe I'm overlooking something.

3) Should I mention the book awards that my original version received in the Amazon listing for my revised edition?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
