A person complained about my choice to do an interracial version of Bishop's Angel, saying "I didn't know I needed a blackfaced version of a book previously written", I clearly add a disclaimer so that the readers who purchased Bishop's Angel won't buy SEAL of Approval. Also, I don't just add a new cover and title but go in and make the necessary changes to my character.
I tried this with Up in Flames (interracial version Touch Me) and it hit the ground running. Since so few books were actually returned I have to think there is a market for this, and I plan to do it to other books in the future. I might be on to something and I bet we will see other authors doing this in the future as well. In business the goal is to try and make everyone happy by offering a product for everyone.
So in response to their comment, "I didn't know I needed a blackfaced version of a book previously written", YOU didn't, but the sales show that clearly there were other readers who did:)
I apologize in advance to anyone I might have offended by doing this.
