Kyle Sullivan (jamthecat59) | 15 comments Hi, I've republished my books under my own banner and sent the old editions to out of print, but on Goodreads my title's page links to the old editions instead of the new one. If someone tries to find it through that, they'll think it's no longer available.

Could you please update the links?

The old editions are:
9781934625927 (paperback)
9781610980623 (ebook)

The new editions are:
9781310592294 (ebook)
9780991286621 (paperback)

Thank you,

Kyle Michel Sullivan

As the author, you have the ability to determine which edition of a work is the default. Here's how: http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/31...

Kyle Sullivan (jamthecat59) | 15 comments I did that when the e-book was available, but when you input the title, what comes up is the old edition.

So...I just input the information for the new edition of the paperback...and it's still coming up with the old edition...and I hate the old edition's cover.

I want the new edition to come up when someone searches for the book; the old editions are no longer available or in print. Apparently, I can't change that.

Neither of the new editions have been set as the default. Be sure you are on this page https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... when you you do step #2.

Kyle Sullivan (jamthecat59) | 15 comments Okay, I did it, again...and this time it seems to have taken. Maybe I didn't click it hard enough before.

Thanks,

Kyle
