Why I Chose to Re-release with a Publisher by @RueAllyn #RLFblog

By Rue Allyn, writing as Susan Charnley
True and Perfect Knight 
Thank you Kayelle for having me back so soon to celebrate the re-release of my medieval romance A True and Perfect Knight. A True and Perfect Knight is a book of my heart, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with readers once more.
Re-releasing a book isn’t as easy as it seems. A whole host of decisions must be made. In what format(s) will the book be offered? Do we need new cover art and if so what should that look like? Who will publish the book and be responsible for distribution—me, a publisher, a co-op? What types of changes can or should be made to the book and by whom? Except for the facts that the book is already written and has been available in the past the experience of re-releasing is as complex as a first release.
Because I had many projects on-going, I decided to go with Samhain—a highly reputable publisher—rather than attempt the re-release myself. I knew I would get first rate editing and promotions from Samhain, so I was delighted when my proposal to them was accepted. Together we made the decision to make only minor changes (mostly to grammar and punctuation) because the story was, as reviewer Harriet Klausner wrote, A True and Perfect Knight is “A truly well written Historical Romance that will keep the readers enthralled! This novel is fast paced and has quite a few interesting subplots to thicken the tension and keep you guessing.”
Today months of hard work comes to fruition. A True and Perfect Knight is once more available to readers. Here’s a blurb and a few links for more information.

handsome, and his reputation as Edward I's most 'true and perfect' knight has swelled the baron’s head.  Worst of all, Gennie believes he betrayed his friendship with her husband to curry favor with the English king.  Now, because of Haven De Sessions, Gennie has lost her home, her title and nearly everything she held dear.  Only for the sake of her family, will Gennie place herself in the power of a man she fears and mistrusts.
