Help with Insert Query

Hi Experts

I need to insert a new row to a table which contains 99% of the information from an existing row but with a few minor changes. I pass the existing unique ID of the row I wish to copy and the new info I need to insert. I'm struggling a little with the syntax and I'm not sure if I'm approaching it wrong.
A summary is below:
Create Procedure AddAnExtraLine()
	@Unique_ID [uniqueidentifier],
	@MyNewBatch [nvarchar](20)
BEGIN

	DECLARE @NEWUnique_ID [uniqueidentifier]
	SELECT @NEWUnique_ID = NewId()

	INSERT INTO [Mytable]
		([Unique_ID]
		,[UniqueID2]
		,[MyDate]
		,[Pmt_Type]
		,[Pmt_Ref]
		,[Description]
		,[Quantity]
		,[UnitPrice]
		,[NettAmt]
		,[VatAmt]
		,[Batch_ID])
	 VALUES
		(SELECT (@NEWUnique_ID 
		,[UniqueID2]
		,[MyDate]
		,[Pmt_Type]
		,[Pmt_Ref]
		,[Description]
		,0
		,0
		,0
		,0
		,@MyNewBatch)
	FROM [Mytable] 
	WHERE [Unique_ID] = @Unique_ID)
END

I guess we dont need "VALUES"
try this:
Create Procedure AddAnExtraLine()
      @Unique_ID [uniqueidentifier],
      @MyNewBatch [nvarchar](20)
BEGIN
      DECLARE @NEWUnique_ID [uniqueidentifier]
      SELECT @NEWUnique_ID = NewId()

      INSERT INTO [Mytable]
            ([Unique_ID]
            ,[UniqueID2]
            ,[MyDate]
            ,[Pmt_Type]
            ,[Pmt_Ref]
            ,[Description]
            ,[Quantity]
            ,[UnitPrice]
            ,[NettAmt]
            ,[VatAmt]
            ,[Batch_ID])
            (SELECT @NEWUnique_ID 
            ,[UniqueID2]
            ,[MyDate]
            ,[Pmt_Type]
            ,[Pmt_Ref]
            ,[Description]
            ,0
            ,0
            ,0
            ,0
            ,@MyNewBatch
      FROM [Mytable] 
      WHERE [Unique_ID] = @Unique_ID)
