Drucilla | 89 comments Hello! All these books are part of a series called Food on the Go. Can someone create a series with them?

What are the requirements for a series?

Imprints are series by a single publisher, if the books were published by someone else they wouldn't be a series.

from the Librarian Manual:

"Imprints and other unrelated collections of works (usually by multiple authors) are not series. They can be grouped with a Listopia list, or the collection/imprint information can be listed in the edition field, but they should not be grouped into a series, or listed on a book's title line.

As a general rule, a book is only part of a series if that designation would apply to all editions of a work. To be a series, books should have characters and/or universes in common. In the case of imprints and other non-series collections, it is common for some of these books to be published under numerous other imprints as well.

For example, SF Masterworks would not be a series, and neither would Harlequin Blaze. "
