Jan Thompson (janthompsonauthor) | 107 comments Hi - We put Candy Cane Kisses on preorder on Amazon Wednesday, June 29, but still haven't seen it appear on Goodreads. Just so I'm not checking every hour (LOL) could you tell me the average timeframe for a new listing on Amazon to appear on Goodreads?

This is the ebook boxed set on Amazon:

Thank you so much!

It varies greatly; there is no specific timeframe. But it's fine to add the book manually. No need to wait for the import bot if you'd rather not.

Jan Thompson (janthompsonauthor) | 107 comments I waited another day, and it's still not there. Rivka, do you think that if I created the entry, and then Amazon comes later and adds the book, will the two entries be merged, or will we end up having two listings? Thank you.

*in the ASIN field -- if you add it to the ISBN field, Amazon will not recognize it

Jan Thompson (janthompsonauthor) | 107 comments Hello! Looks like the auto-update from Amazon kicked in and our boxed set is here. Hooray!

That's the good news. The bad news is... once again, my name is linked to the wrong author. It should be linked to me at:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

This happens every time I have a new book out, and I was asked to post here in the GR Lib group to ask for help to re-point the name to my profile. Thank you so much for helping me!!!
