Cameron Glenn | 14 comments Hi Librarians. For some reason two of my books are listed twice.

Cassandra's comet and comet poems:

here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

And here:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Can you please keep the first (the one with more "action") and get rid of the second one and move the review and rating under the 2nd one over to the first one?

Also the two "Mortimer the Vampire's" are the same.

Here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

And here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Again, could you please get rid of the second one and move the review under the second listing over to the first listing?

Also "No Name Sunset" is listed twice: could you please keep the one that has the cover and review, ratings and "want to reads" etc. and get rid of the duplicate?

Thanks!

Cameron Glenn.

Annika | 568 comments I've combined the two Cassandra's comet and comet poems, as one was paperback and the other a kindle edition.

As for the two other books, they seem to have different titles/subtitles. Could you please confirm that they are the same book

Mortimer the Vampire's / Mortimer the Vampire and Drake the Dragon

No Name Sunset / No Name Sunset, Rave Girl, Early Poems and Other Writings

Annika | 568 comments Rivka: I found a newly edited version of No Name Sunset as well, do I combine it with the older versions, or let it stand for it self?

Al | 12 comments Hello. This book of mine is listed twice, im not sure why

The Invasion of Adam (Tork and Adam, #2) by Claire Davis

The Invasion of Adam (Tork and Adam Book 2) by Claire Davis

But could they please be merged ?
Thank you

Wellington (wfdealmeida) | 431 comments #4 They are different editions, so we do not merge

Instead, they are combined with each other.

I combined them, btw

I'm not rivka, but 'newly edited' should be moved either to the edition field or the description, and the edition combined with the older versions :)

Combine it with the older versions please. It's the same material inside. :) (It's kinda confusing, but after the fact I found out that an author can change/fix their manuscripts that already have an asin. So although the two books have different asin's the manuscripts are the same).

Thanks for your help!


message 10: by Annika (new)

Annika | 568 comments They are combined! :)


message 11: by Cameron (new)

Cameron Glenn | 14 comments ...The same is true for "Mortimer the Vampire and Drake the Dragon" and "Mortimer the Vampire" as well. It's the exact same material in both. So the review under "Mortimer the Vampire" belongs under "Mortimer the Vampire and Drake the Dragon," the one I want to be the "default" version of the book.

Thanks again!

Cameron.

Annika | 568 comments They have been combined and it looks like the Mortimer the Vampire and Drake the Dragon is the default edition.
If I'm not mistaken, you are the one to chose which edition that should be the default one.

That's right. Cameron, please see message #4 in this thread on how to do that: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Annika | 568 comments Thanks again lethe :)

Cameron Glenn | 14 comments Thanks guys, I really appreciate it! So fast too! You guys are awesome! (And sorry about the mess up).

I currently don't see the reviews that were under the "alternative" versions of "Cassandra's comet" and "Mortimer the Vampire" under the default versions, but I assume that it just takes some time for it all to load up and whatever. It's not a super big deal, but since neither has many reviews yet, I don't want any to be "lost" ya know? Especially when they were good ones. :D

Yes, that's just a caching issue. Give it a day or two.
