The awesome co-hosts for the December 5 posting of the IWSG are
My next writing adventure – republish a golden oldie.
This month, I’m hoping members of this group can offer some sage advice on how best to republish a previous novel. My first novel was traditionally published – good reviews but sales were not impressive. I now have the rights to The Guardian’s Wildchild and plan to self-publish it.
The book cover will be spiced up, synopsis edited, some massaging of the story line. Now I’m racking my brain for a zinger of a title. All day long and half the night I’ve been searching for a title that will better indicate the story’s genre. And, no, my muse is not helping at all! That little beast has become totally focused on Forbidden’s sequel.
I need to indicate on the book cover somewhere that, if you’ve read The Guardian’s Wildchild, “AXVHTEDRY” is basically the same story. Truly don’t want to tick off a reader, wasting their time and money.
Are there other roadblocks ahead? Please help 🙂
