J.J. Toner (jjtoner) | 14 comments This is one of my ebooks for kindle. On August 29 2015, I changed the title. The original book is no longer available. The book is now called: Houdini's Handcuffs, and it has a new cover. The new book's isbn is 978-1-908519-24-5. The ASIN for the new book has not changed: B005JPEGKG. Could someone sort this out for me, please. Thanks.

Please see https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2... and https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have.
Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition.
See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...
and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....

Alternate title/cover edition added here:

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.
How to set the default edition.

Also created a series: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1826...

J.J. Toner (jjtoner) | 14 comments Brilliant! Many thanks, Arenda. Can I add this as if it were a new book onto my author page?
