Sandra | 23262 comments Done. Also added all the other information from Amazon. Please note that ebooks sold by Amazon are called kindle editions and not ebooks.

These books do not appear to have any common characters. What makes them a series, rather than an imprint?

Sandra | 23262 comments Kevin, only you as the author can change the default edition.

Instructions, 4th Q down:

Alex | 2739 comments #5 (re Velerio) How has the author of Velerio changed to Leonard H. Roseburg? Was he involved in the original edition and, if not, how is he involved now?

#7 It might be that you can't set an edition that hasn't been published yet as the default? However, since librarians can't set the default for a book, this is a total shot in the dark, I'm afraid.

Alex | 2739 comments #5/9 Oh, I see, thank you for the clarification.

I have created editions for the new formats below:
Kindle Edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
Ebook: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

In regards to the ebook listing: Was I right in thinking that ISBN: 9781508047186 is the ebook ISBN? Also, was it published simultaneously with the Kindle edition (i.e. January 4th 2017)?

Publication status has no effect on this feature. However, having some editions with a different primary author does. Looks like that has been corrected.

Thank you Rivka, good to know, however, this hasn't been corrected for the book in question: Balvur. Further, it seems to have been originally written under the pen name Sum Guye, so that should be made primary on all, correct? So Kevin will still not be able to set the default.

The first published edition of that work has Sum Guye as the author, so all editions of that work will have Sum Guye as the first listed author. You will therefore not be able to manually set a default for that work.

Alex | 2739 comments #13 Series created here: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1986...

Note: series besides the first are not accessible through the hyperlinks in the titles of their books, but through the series section of the listing (above the other edition thumbnails).

#18 I'm not entirely sure what the best way to go about this is, but, as only GR staff can help with this, you could try making your request through the Contact Us page.
