J.M. Powers (jmpowers) | 28 comments The following books need to be added to my profile. These are NEWER editions with a different publisher, Breathless Press. I've tried, but can't seem to accomplish this task. Can you help me?
Here's my author profile:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

And here are the books I am trying to add to my profile:

I can see why you might think that, as two of the three books are titled the same as the books I asked about. But, don't go by the titles. That's why I gave the links. The books I gave links to are not listed as books in my profile. The old/no longer in print editions are. The new (Improved and with another publisher) are the three books in question here. The newer ones--the ones I gave links for-- are the ones I need in my profile.
Wow. I just repeated myself way too much.
ha. Please add the ones I gave links to. Thank you!

Here's my book page to help a bit: https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...

J.M., they are all already on your profile, as Nina said. However, what I think you are asking is for each of them to become the default edition of their respective work. As the author, you have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

(This is not something a librarian can do for you.)

J.M. Powers (jmpowers) | 28 comments I feel stupid at this point. Here is my goodreads list of books https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...
It shows five books. there should be eight. And I don't see the newest three on there. What am I missing?

Newer editions of a book are not listed as completely separate entries on Goodreads. They are combined into a single work. Here are all the editions of For All Time, for example: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

J.M. Powers (jmpowers) | 28 comments Ugh. I am seriously confused. I tried changing the edition to the default one I want and all it did was change it on my reviews and got this "You changed your review of this book to another edition" Yeah. Didn't review my own book. I give up. I'm so frustrated--and know it's not anyone's fault but my own that I can't straighten this out. I suppose it will have to remain as is?

Try following your own links from the first post. For each one, follow steps 2 & 3.

Yay! It's fixed! I think my biggest issue (other than being a confused dimwit) was the fact I couldn't find that little edit book link. It's in gray and hard to see/find. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. :) Thanks so much for your patience and not throwing anything at me.
