elbie please remove Try by Ella Frank. Accidentally clicked on it while searching for another title... My bad!


message 2: by Barbara (new)

Barbara We added Glitterland, but it's the Italian translation of the original book, and it's been published this month. Does it count or the translations are not allowed? Considering that the covers are different and they are "new" books, it would be nice to have the chance to be included.
If they are not allowed, feel free to remove it of course :)

First, are allowed only books that were first published in 2015. Therefore Glitterland doesn't belong here.
Second, the default editions have priority. So if someone else will add the default edition of a book, the one that appears first on a search, then any other edition considered a duplicate will be removed.

Okay, sorry.


message 5: by Cat (new)

Cat I would love to vote for Dance with me by Heidi Cullinan but the new cover. I think that cover is a work of art by the photographer and the subject.


message 6: by Dee Wy (new)

Dee Wy Please remove Enigma by Meeker - my mistake, wanted book 2 not 1. Thanks


message 7: by B. (new)

B. Snow How can I get my book "Emily's Magical Bejeweled Codpiece" on this list? Paul Richmond did an amazing job on the cover. Thanks for your help.


message 8: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Shepherd I want to add Kage: unmasked by Maris Black but I can't seem to change it to the alternate cover of the UFC fighter- not just the plain black cover


message 9: by Chris (new)

Chris Pls RMV "Not Just Friends", it's from 2014!

You just vote for it. At the top of the list, below all the rules, there's a link that says "add books to this list." It will then direct you to your own bookshelves. Just search for the book and then click add.

Dance With Me isn't eligible because it was first published in 2011. That beautiful cover is from the second edition.

Kelly H. (Maybedog) FYI, Try, Enigma, and Not Just Friends have been removed (listing it here so that another Librarian won't bother to search for them thinking it hasn't been taken care of). I often respond to requests because a lot of list owners never fix the problems and I personally get frustrated when people don't post a response knowing something's been taken care of. I'm sure whoever fixed this list didn't have time or just didn't think of it.

Kelly H. (Maybedog) Sheila wrote: "I want to add Kage: unmasked by Maris Black but I can't seem to change it to the alternate cover of the UFC fighter- not just the plain black cover"

Sheila, the current default for that book is the one with the fighters. If it's defaulting to the other, it's because that's the edition on your shelves. Go to the book page for the edition you want and click "switch to this edition" and then come back here and add it.

For anyone with this question: When you add a book, it chooses the edition you have on your shelves. If the book is not already posted here and that's not the edition you want, you can do it by going to the book page, selecting the edition you want, and adding it to your shelves. (Or switch to that edition if it's already on your shelves.) Then add it to the list.

List owners: please correct me if this is wrong: If the book is already here and it's the default cover, you said that the default edition of the book has priority so they can't change it. If the one someone wants is the default cover but another version is posted, can add it and then request that the other edition, is that right? What happens to the votes for the edition that's already here? People are voting for that, not the default. Just not sure what to do in that particular instance.


Kelly H. (Maybedog) I've removed The Downs because it isn't eligible for the list: It's an M/M Romance Group publication. There is no other edition listed. I could not find it on Amazon.com or Smashwords. The author's website points to the M/M Romance Group site to download it so with all that, I don't think it's available at any online retailer.


message 15: by Kelly H. (Maybedog) (last edited Mar 01, 2016 06:15AM) (new)

Kelly H. (Maybedog) Removed Elpis because it was first published in 2011.
