Jacqueline Garlick | 18 comments Hi There,

I was recently invited to add my book to a shelf...to the Best Unknown Steampunk List...and when I search my book in the search bar...it says no book found. I've searched under the title...the title with the series name attached, under my name...and nothing...how do I fix this?

My book is... Lumière (Illumination Paradox #1) by Jacqueline Garlick

Thanks! J

If I search for Lumière Jacqueline Garlick it is the only hit.

If I search for Lumière it is at the bottom of page 2.

Jacqueline Garlick | 18 comments When I try to add it to that shelf...I only have the opportunity to put the word in the search bar box and then when I click it, it says there is nothing...so how will I add it to that list (shelf) then?

Ren | 688 comments I also got it with "lumiere illumination paradox" or just "illumination paradox".

Search is sometimes unreliable though and usually it's easier to search by ISBN/ASIN if you're looking for a specific book to add.
