Rachel Davies | 25 comments The New Lovers series (https://www.goodreads.com/series/161087) only has three books included on Goodreads when all seven should be included. All seven are uploaded to Goodreads individually, just not uploaded to the series page. The four series titles not on the series page areI My Wet Hot Drone Summer by Lex Brown, I Would Do Anything For Love by Al Bedell, Burning Blue by Cara Bendetto, and Kuntalini by Tamara Faith Berger.

Rachel Davies | 25 comments Thanks!

Rachel Davies | 25 comments Another issue: the titles aren't uniform in the series list. If you could change them all to read as this one does (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) with Title: New Lover #_ ... for number information if unclear on the Goodreads page you can look here: http://badlandsunlimited.com/books/ne... ... #4 through #7 are correct, only How To Train Your Virgin, We Love Lucy, and God, I Don't Even Know Your Name need to be edited.

This is not a series; it's an imprint. Information about an imprint can be added to a book's edition field, but not the title field, and they should not have a series page.

OK - I'll go and change that, Rivka.

Rachel Davies | 25 comments I work at the publisher - it is a series, you can read about it here (http://badlandsunlimited.com/new-love...). Having the series Goodreads list is really useful, is there anyway you can keep it up?

Rachel,

I cannot keep it as a series. If recollection serves me right, a list can be created with these works and kept updated instead. If you create a list and link to it, I can add the works to it and set it as static for you.

Rachel Davies | 25 comments The way our audience uses goodreads, keeping it as a series is more helpful than as a user generated list. Though the books are not a continuation of each other narrative-wise, most readers like to read all of them as they are marketed as a series.

They are not a series by Goodreads standards.

Rachel Davies | 25 comments Could you put the following in the description in place of where it says 'an imprint by Badlands Unlimited'?

NEW LOVERS is a series devoted to publishing new
works of erotic romance that explore the complexities bedeviling
contemporary life, culture, and art today. Inspired by radical
publisher Maurice Girodias and his legendary Olympia Press, New
Lovers offers readers a chance to turn on and tune in to new voices in art and literature.
