    Verb "reissue

    I have used "reissue" in my sentences. I am wondering if have used it correctly. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    1. The well-known novel "The Great Gatsby" has been reissued this month and was sold out within a two weeks.
    2. The media was surprised when the reissued "Collected novels" by Hemingway were sold out within hours.

    I struck out "were" because a) it isn't necessary and b) it's hard to tell whether it should be singular (if "Collected Novels" is a single volume or set) or plural (because the new collection consists of multiple, unboxed volumes).
    I am not a teacher.

    The first would only work in the present perfect without and sold out within two weeks.
