Randall Wood (randall_wood) | 8 comments Hello,

The following books appear under another author name, who has the same name I do:
Rebellion: Jack Randall #5
Resistance: Jack Randall #6

I'd like them to appear on my author profile:
Randall Wood

Thank you!

Best regards,
Randall Wood

Lieke | 2284 comments I changed the author, you have the two spaces author profile.

I wanted to add the books to the series, but there already is a book 5 in the series. Can you tell me the order of the books.

Thank you, Lieke! The book 5 you see in the Jack Randall series, called HOMELAND, is out of publication and was replaced by REBELLION, a totally different book. Maybe you could take HOMELAND out of the series?

The series order goes like this:
Closure #1
Pestilence #2
Scarcity #3
Time #3.5
Insight: A Danny Drake Novella #3.6
Security #4
Rebellion #5
Resistance #6
Rubicon #7


Thank you, once again, Lieke.

Best regards,
Randall

Goodreads does not delete out-of-print works. (Please see http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/22... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/32... ) We will simply have to adjust the numbers of the following books accordingly.

Done. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Thank you for your through explanation. Since Goodreads does not delete out-of-print works, is it possible to remove Homeland from the Jack Randall series?


Best regards,
Randall

Since it includes the characters from that series, that would also be contrary to policy.

Randall Wood (randall_wood) | 8 comments Rivka,

It, in fact, includes the characters from the series, but it does not follow the storyline of the series. So it'd not make sense, even if the book was still published, for it to be included in the Jack Randall series, though I'm aware the error of including it there inadvertently was probably mine.
