Sabrina York (sabrina_york) | 8 comments I need help from a librarian!

I re-edited, re-covered and RE-ORDERED the books in my Noble Passion Series. I would like to show new covers, adjust the order of books in the series and update buy links.

If I try to do this myself, I know I will screw it up!

Can anyone help?

Monique (kadiya) | 1099 comments Absolutely.

Let's start with getting the new editions up. I'm making the assumption that the new editions are Kindle editions with the same ASIN and new covers. Once new editions are up, you can make those editions the default using the steps outlined in the link below.

Once the editions are updated, we'll get to work on the series ordering.

Monique (kadiya) | 1099 comments OK - so someone else has already added new editions of books 1-4. I'm assuming they are taking care of the rest of it.

Looks like the new editions have a new ASIN and were imported from Amazon by Goodreads.

Sabrina York (sabrina_york) | 8 comments So what I need to do is

1. Combine the editions
2. Remove the old covers and old links

How can I do that?

The new editions already have been combined. And Goodreads does not delete out-of-print books or editions. Please see http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/22... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/32...

You probably will want to set the new editions as primary, following the instructions Monique provided in message #2 above.

I made the change Monique suggested, but am still seeing the older covers. Not sure how to fix that!

You need to set the default once for each work. It doesn't appear that you have done so for any of them.

Um... I was doing that but neglecting to save changes.

Sigh...

Thank you!
