Adding another version to existing book

I would like to add a second version of a book which I have already uploaded but without affecting the download statistics on the first version. If I simply use Manage Attachment to upload version 2, will it leave version 1 alone?

That depends on whether or not it's the same format or not. If you have a book uploaded as an epub for example and you want to load a copy in mobi format then it won't affect anything. If you want to upload an updated copy of the same book in the same format to where you have already posted a copy though then your original epub would be replaced by the new version. And your download stats would be erased I think. So you would have to make a note on the page (x many views in previous version) or words to that effect. The only way (I think) you could prevent that would be to start another thread with a v2 rather than a v1 in the header.

Both are ePub.
Version 2 could have a different attachment name - would this help?
I want to keep the old version in order to:
(a) preserve the original download count and
(b) leave a fallback, (in case v2 is a bit Sony specific).

The guidelines suggest avoiding different threads simply for book updates.

As crich70 says, if you replace a file with a new version, the download count will be reset to 0. If you want to edit the post with the previous download count, make sure to note the number before uploading the new file, or you won't be able to see it again.

If you add a new file to the original post, the original file and its download count are not affected (as far as I know). When you "manage attachments" you will be able to add or remove files. Just make sure to add the new file with a different name, or it will overwrite the existing one.

What I generally do is to simply add a note to the post saying "Previous download count: 200" (or whatever it is at the time that I replace the file).
