lethe | 13571 comments I think Goodreads only distinguishes between Winners and Nominees. I could be wrong though, since I usually steer clear of awards :)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6560 comments Cannot remove nominee, but added (Finalist).

Lucy Treloar (lucytreloar) | 3 comments Hello, Just trying to get award details for this book corrected: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2.... It should have only the below, and preferably in this order (of significance).

Shortlist Miles Franklin Literary Award (2016)
Winner: ABIA Awards Matt Richell Prize for New Writer
Winner: Indie Book Award for Best Debut (2016)
Shortlist: Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction (2016)
Shortlist: Dobbie Award (one of the Nita B. Kibble Awards) (2016)

Also, the page has two different listings for the same award.
Delete the reference to Independent Booksellers Award for Best Debut (2016)
Thanks.

Done. I fixed the naming of the awards to the standard that all other books that have won or been nominated for the award carry. In that way, all of the books for that award appear on the award page. Goodreads sorts these in most recent order, by winner, then grouped by nominee/shortlist. See for example Australian Book Industry Award (ABIA) Winners.

We can't control the order of awards on the book page. I *think* it is by the order in which the awards were originally added to the database, or the Award ID.

And congratulations on your award-winning debut fiction!

Hi Elizabeth - thanks so much for this info - much appreciated. So sorry to ask for one more correction. Salt Creek hasn't won the Miles Franklin - it's just shortlisted.

Thanks again!


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6560 comments Thanks for getting back on that. I thought maybe I'd missed one. It's fixed now.

Dave Riese (daveriese) I want to add an award for my book Echo from Mount Royal. One of the two Indie Book awards has already been added.

Next Generation Indie Book Awards for General Fiction/Novel (over 80k words) (First Place) (2016)

Also does winning an indieBRAG medallion count as an award?

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6560 comments The BRAG medallion is not an award by GR standards.

Can you link to the Next Generation site? I'll be happy to add it for you. (I think there are many wordings on Goodreads, and I'd like to be able to consolidate at some time.)

At the bottom of that page you will see the links for the winners and finalists from 2008-2016.

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6560 comments Thanks, again, Melanie.

Got the award updated for you Dave. It isn't possible to have two entries for the same award, but your listing shows them both as best as the system will allow.
