It’s never too late to figure out how to sell your books but what do you do about your backlist? Having a book fall flat, for whatever reason, doesn’t mean that it can’t be saved. Sometimes a makeover, inside or out, is a great next step to your book marketing plan.

Just like in life, book events happen to the best of us. This is a great opportunity to give your book a second chance now that you know how to sell your books and have more knowledge. The key is taking a critical look at what went wrong the first time, and understanding what you need to do to fix it. And fixing it often means taking the leap into revising and re-releasing your book to give it an honest second chance at success.

I know a re-release often sounds complex, and like a lot of work, but it really doesn’t have to be! You have done a lot of the hard work already, now you just have to fine-tune it. And naturally, I’m here to help with a list of the most common reasons you’d want to consider a re-release when you’re planning how to sell your books.

Revising and re-releasing your book can be a great way to reboot your book promotion and your entire author career. It proves there’s no reason to let a single title drag down your brand or make you feel all the effort you put in wasn’t worth it.

Check over the list below and see if one of your books could benefit from being revised and re-released.

And when you’re ready to promote your re-released book the right way, we’d love to help!

    Hi Penny,

    Thanks a million for all this useful info! In your experience is there a certain point where you find that you’ve learned so much since releasing the book initially, it might be a better idea to start a completely new sequel than re-new the existing work?
