Lillian Morgan series:
1 Thirteen Diamonds
2 Catch a Falling Knife

Gary Blanchard series:
1 The Hayloft
2 Honeymoon for Three

Carol Golden series:
1 Forget to Remember
2 Relatively Dead
3 Dangerous Wind

Thanks a lot!

Natacha | 2 comments Yes, thank you! :)


Cait (tigercait) | 5006 comments Natacha, I've combined that book with its other editions and listed the translated series name on the series page:
http://www.goodreads.com/series/54051...

There are already Dutch editions of the first two books listed:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

Are these the books you were looking for?

Natacha | 2 comments Is it possible to add 'vlam van hoop' to 'Amerikaanse Burgeroorlog Trilogie' as book 3 of this serie?

Also the first 2 books of this serie aren't on goodreads. They are in English, but not in Dutch.

Thank you!

Vlam van hoop

Hi Airicka,

Okay, there's no problem with changing the covers, so you can create temporary covers for the books and send them to me and I'll upload them. One suggestion from a Lib, you might want to add 'Cover not final' or 'Temporary Cover' or something to that effect somewhere on the temporary covers that you're creating. That way both the readers and the GR librarians know a new cover will be coming, and that should avoid any problems with the librarians when the cover is swapped.

I'll message you my e-mail adddress.
Have a great day,
Darren

Airicka,
That would be fine, but do keep in mind that GR normally has a policy of not changing (replacing or deleting) covers on an existing edition. This is because frequently users will add a given edition of a book because of the cover art, so simply changing from one cover art to another may cause confusion. Normally we would handle it by creating a new alternate edition of the book with the new (final) cover and set that as the primary edition.

Having said that, as you're the author & publisher and the cover would clearly just be a temporary placeholder it might be possible to change it in this case. I'm going to pose the question to our higher ups and see how they would recommend handling it. I'll get back to you once I hear from them and let you know what they say, and then you can decide whether you want to upload temporary covers or not.


Airicka Phoenix (AirickaPhoenix) | 19 comments Hello Darren,

Thank you so much for putting those into a catagory for me. I don't have 'covers' for them at this time, but I can do up temporary covers like I did for the Touch Saga. Would that be all right? And would I be able to change them up later on when I get their covers?

Thank you again so much for your help.

Airicka Phoenix (AirickaPhoenix) | 19 comments Hello!

could you add:

Deadly Sins (Collector Series, Book 1) and Deadly Nights (Collector Series, Book 2) together under Collector Series.

Also,

Blood Oath (The Hunter Series, Book 1) and Blood Vengeance (The Hunter Series, Book 2) under Hunter Series.

Thank you so much for your time!


Reena Jacobs (ReenaJacobs) | 8 comments Thank you greatly!


Amanda | 1736 comments Got #21 and #22


Reena Jacobs (ReenaJacobs) | 8 comments Sorry... I also might mention I made a mistake adding Reasonable Risks #5.

There are two links for the same work: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13... & http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13....

If at all possible, I'd love for one to be deleted.

Thank you again,
Reena


Reena Jacobs (ReenaJacobs) | 8 comments May I have a new series created please? The series is:

Injustice is Served

and includes the following titles:

My Favorite Color No More #1
Blind Alley #2
NutraLoaf #3
Severed in Blood #4
Reasonable Risks #5
Fallen #6
My Favorite Color No More #7

I'm not sure if Injustice is Served should be included in the series. It a collection of all the stories above.

As a separate request, may I have She's Mine added to the Control Freak series? This series includes Brandon's Story and Regina's Story.

Thank you,
Reena


Iluzija O. Istini | 235 comments Also did 18.


Iluzija O. Istini | 235 comments Edited name and data of one edition to show series, someone added the other edition to series.


Andreea Daia (AndreeaDaia) | 126 comments P.S. I just noticed that the individual titles are also scrambled:

1) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/74... should be "Green Mars" only.

2) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/71... - should be "Red Mars" only.

Thanks again!


Amanda | 1736 comments Got 16


Andreea Daia (AndreeaDaia) | 126 comments http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/85... is an omnibus edition (with the wrong title - it should read "Red Mars and Green Mars") of the first 2 books of http://www.goodreads.com/series/40710....

Thanks!

The booklinks tab looked promising, but since there's no URL for the series books (the Lulu books have a place for the URL), there's no way to put the correct URL there.

The links you see on each book's page and the ones I see are not the same. Every user has the option to customize the links they see on their edit profile's booklinks tab.


R.L.B. Hartmann (RLBH) | 10 comments When you say "user costomizes their own links" I'm not sure what you mean. I have put correct links in my blog, but the links FROM the books listed here send buyers AWAY from where I want them to go.

rivka | 20931 comments Mod
CreateSpace's search function is incompatible with GR's link system.

Anyway, each user customizes their own links, and they would have to choose to select CreateSpace from the various link options.

MONTHS ago I was assured that Goodreads was going to make a BUY link to Create Space books, but apparently that is still not the case. I want to direct my prospective buyers to the exact page for the individual titles, where they can make purchases using a secure shopping cart. I DO NOT want to send my buyers to the Amazon site, or anywhere else that shows as an option. If you cannot link my titles to their page at Create Space, can you send prospective buyers to my website?


Andreea Daia (AndreeaDaia) | 126 comments Cait wrote: Okay! I think I have this sorted out!

Hi Cait -

Thanks a lot for taking care of this. I know that it took quite a bit of effort and I appreciate it! And I'll start a new thread next time.

Andreea


Cait (tigercait) | 5006 comments p.s. To Andreea and R.L.B.: It's a lot easier to track threads if you make a new one instead of adding a request into an older thread. It's always okay to open a new thread for a new request in the librarian group! :)


Cait (tigercait) | 5006 comments Cait wrote: "Andreea, I'm working on sorting out those John Grimes series, but it looks like they're all over the place! This may take a little while...."

Okay! I think I have this sorted out!

Here's the link to the main series:
http://www.goodreads.com/series/76652...

There are actually four sub-series: three for John Grimes and the related Rim World books. The Empress Irene books I listed as a separate series, but there's a link from the main series.

I put the books in the big series in publication order, as near as I could determine it, using the Bertram Chandler site you linked above, the English Wikipedia page, this fantastic fan site, ISFDB, and Baen's Chandler page. :)

There's a wealth of cover art on those sites, but I haven't started uploading yet.

R.L.B. Hartmann (RLBH) | 10 comments I have librarian status, but I can't even figure out how to add my OWN titles to my series, Tierra del Oro. Someone please add my Book 4, La Puerta del Sol, and its cover? Here is the URL to its page at Create Space: https://www.createspace.com/3756305


Andreea Daia (AndreeaDaia) | 126 comments P.S. to #3

You can find the missing covers (and the missing editions with all the necessary info) following the link to the author's page (which I posted above). Thanks again!


Andreea Daia (AndreeaDaia) | 126 comments Hi -

I think these two series
http://www.goodreads.com/series/55592...
http://www.goodreads.com/series/55595...
are a bit confusing: they are either one series only, or three (sub-)series, according to the author's website: http://www.bertramchandler.com/johngr....

Some of the books are not at all listed as belonging to either of the series:
1) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10... - which is an omnibus edition of Spartan Planet, The Inheritors, The Big Black Mark, and The Far Traveller
2) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/98...

Anyhow, according the the author's website, the John Grimes series goes like this:
1) sub-series John Grimes: Survey Service:
The Road to the Rim
To Prime the Pump
The Hard Way Up
The Broken Cycle
Spartan Planet
The Inheritors
The Big Black Mark

2) sub-series John Grimes: Far Traveller Couriers:
The Far Traveller
Star Courier
To Keep the Ship
Matilda's Stepchildren
Star Loot
The Anarch Lords
The Last Amazon
The Wild Ones

3) sub-series John Grimes: Rim Commodore I had some problems here as I couldn't find the individual editions, only omnibuses:
"Into the Alternate Universe"
"Contraband from Otherspace"
"Gateway to Never"
"The Rim Gods"
"Alternate Orbits"
"The Dark Dimensions"
The Way Back

Sorry if this was too long and thanks in advance!
