Ariella Melusine | 9 comments My book's edition with ISBN 9781370220731 shows an Amazon button that should not be there because this edition was distributed through Smashwords. When clicking on the button, it goes to a page that says, "Your search "9781370220731" did not match any products."

In addition, the Stores button is not working, When the stores come up, the book does not show up in any of them. Is there any way to just remove this edition of the book?

Thank you for your help.

Book links to other sites are customized on a per-user basis (each user chooses theirs), not a per-book basis.

Librarians have no control over any of this, and we cannot delete the book- https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2....

lethe | 13747 comments If I click on the Smashwords link, the book shows up there. Maybe you do not have the Smashwords link installed?

(An edition can only be found in the store that sells that particular edition, so links to other stores won't work.)

Ariella Melusine | 9 comments I don't see a Smashwords link, so I must not have it installed. I'm glad that it shows up for other people. Thank you for letting me know.

The one in your topic header https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... is on amazon with a different cover. Can you tell me/us more about that. Was an edition with that cover ever available to anyone?

The cover was added to that edition after the publication date had passed, so I believe it has to stay no matter what. An ACE could be created with the new cover if you're so inclined, Corinne.

Your saying the cover with the girl's face was added after the publication date? Teach me how you can tell please. Because the one with the face was published 8/25/17 but according to the lib edits the cover with the trees only was added 9/7.

The one with the trees only, claimed the isbn first so it gets to keep it even though the one with the girls face was pub first.

Yes, I'm saying that the new cover on Amazon was most likely changed after the publication date. If you look into the changelog for the Kindle edition (https://www.goodreads.com/book/edits/...), which it appears you did, the current cover (the one that's not on Amazon) was added after the publication date, thus it must've been available somewhere and shouldn't be removed. The new cover on Amazon could be added as an ACE (although the author didn't request it here).

The publication date on Amazon remains the same; it doesn't change regardless of which cover it shows. The cover could be changed multiple times in the future, and the publication date on Amazon wouldn't change.

Why do you assume the edition with the face was published first? But yes, regardless, that cover had the ASIN first, and it must remain.

Oh yes, I wasn't thinking about that.

And yes, I was making an assumption about cover order. But did ask so I wasn't making any changes based on assumption.
Tapping out though. :) Covers and ACEs I'm stilling watching and learning about, not confident yet.

No worries, that's how we all learn :)
