message 1: by Kristia (new) - added it

Kristia | 1 comments Createspace are published and sold by Amazon. I can find no record of this cover on Amazon (or anywhere else), and the ISBN listed was for another book in the series. I suspect this edition doesn't exist. Any ideas?

Empress (the_empress) It seems like alternative cover edition. Usually the ISBN is left to the old edition with the new covers being added to GR. In that case ISBN should not be removed or switched to other editions. HERE

In this case it seems both editions were published the same month

Media: Paperback Book
Language: English
Publisher: Createspace
Edition: Unknown
ISBN-10: 1469980592

Andrew Hixson | 1 comments This is the original cover which has been replaced by a new cover to coincide with the series.

message 4: by Emy (new)

Emy (emypt) | 5036 comments GR do not delete covers. As the books were published with both covers we created Alternate Cover Editions for the second set. As Ellie says, ISBNs are NOT moved, so all looks fine here.

The only alterations we can really do now without Staff authority, is to add a cross reference link. As a general point, when new covers are issued, the author can set the newer covers as Primary, which means the new cover shows at the top of the 'stack' of edition on the search function. If an author needs assistance on this, check the 4th comment here .
