I'm not seeing Going for Gold on that list, nor do I see the author "Kelly Whitley" on the books ..."

I bet you are right. I will tell her. Thanks.

220 Author Whitley Gray asked me to forward the following:

I have a book that's showing up under a different pen name.
The Going for Gold anthology comes up under "Whitley Gray" (which is correct) but also under "Kelly Whitley" (which is wrong). Is there a way to fix this so the anthology doesn't come up under the "Kelly Whitley" pen name?
Thanks for your help!

Thank you!
220 The Forester is correctly listed in two series, Tales of the Forest and The Forester Trilogy. The Forester Trilogy should be listed first, but Tales of the Forest is listed first. How do I exchange this order?
220 It would be a truly horrible idea to remove the book listings for these stories. They are widely read and reviewed. They are proofed, copyedited ( and sometimes content edited) and formatted by a large group of volunteers in a private group before they are posted to MMR. Many are by professional or aspiring writers. Many go on to be available at Amazon or ARe.

It would be seriously inappropriate to excise these and would infuriate thousands of Goodreads members.

The Macbook pro has 132 dpi. I don't think 72 is enough anymore.

Glossy magazines are at 300, so 600 is way too much.

I really don't understand what you are trying to get at here, "

It is a common question: "how many words per page in a standard novel?" or how many pages does this word count translate into?" Per Google, 250 seems to be the most common answer. See for example here, here, or here
220 Thanks vicki_girl!
220 Would someone please check my work?

- I added the Amazon link to the Kindle edition
- I added the book. I believe the narrator goes in the description and not as an author? Did I miss anything?
- I think two of the editions should be combined. They both have the same ISBN13 and the same format (ebook) but one has an ISBN. Then I think I have to add the Carina Press URL and the pages and so on, but I don't know which one to add it to.

220 An author asked me about a person who left a one-star review on her book that has not yet been released. I visited the reviewer's profile and she has 4775 reviews with a 1.12 star average - it is pretty clear these are not genuine reviews. Is there anything I can or should do?

From my read, that topic concludes that online fiction should not be deleted. It doesn't address fan fiction, which is a dark grey area of copyright law.
