Krazykiwi | 1767 comments I can tell you why librarians are loathe to touch this:

The book has a 2014 publication date, and the only person who has ever edited before now is you yourself, which makes it difficult to understand "it has never been published", particularly since you've edited it multiple times over the past two years but didn't remove or postpone the publication date. As a volunteer librarian I'm not going to remove it, the cover, or edit it in any way that is against policy.

GR policy is to not remove books that have been published, and that new editions must have the original name it was published under as the primary author name.

Both names are on the book already (added by you), so it will be showing on both profiles. The order is now correct, with the name on the cover first.

If you want it removed as never having been published, you will need to somehow plead that case to GR Support.
