Richard Maddox | 6 comments Hi,
I have broken my three-book series "Remembering Eternity" into nine books. six are new entries on Kindle, but three are replacing previous versions. These three have the same ASINs as the original ones, but newer covers and shorter contents. I have not succeeded in changing these on Goodreads, as the ASINs are the same. Can you help me do this? The affected books are: "Remembering Eternity Volume 1" B01B9YPAU0, "Remembering Eternity Volume 2" B01B9YYJPW, and "Remembering Eternity" Volume 3 B01B9YYN12. Thank you for your help!

New alternate cover editions are added, the ASIN remains with the first book on GR

Hi Paula,
Thanks for your reply. I have broken the three books referenced into nine books, so it is not only the covers, but the content that has changed. But the ASINs for three of them, those I referenced, did not change. Is there any way I can replace the older ones with the newer ones? Otherwise, my readers will be confused. Thanks, Richard Maddox

No, because Goodreads does not remove valid books or editions, even if they are now out of print. Please see http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/22... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/32...

That may have more to do with reusing ASINs for significantly modified editions. You might want to consider using new ASINs instead.
