James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments Hello,

Can someone put these books into a series for me?

Series title: A Cox Club Story

Book 1: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Book 2: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Thank you very much!

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6162 comments just to verify: These books share characters?
Or at least a universe/world?
And as there are no details on the second one - how long will that be? also just a story with novella/short story length?
And story 1 isn't published separately?

James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments This is the same series/world. Book/story 1 is in the anthology Lawless. The second book is The Devil's Cum in His Eye.

I just put the cover up for the second book. I'm awaiting edits. The expected release date is in November.

Book 1 is a short story. Book 2 is not a short story.

Book 1 will never be published separately.

I don't want the anthology to be only on my series because there are others stories/authors in there but I'd like book 1 to be connected to book 2 in some way.

Thanks!!

James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments Whoops, could you please change the book numbers. Lawless is book 1 and The Devil's Cum in His Eye is book 2.

Is there anyway you can make it so that my series title isn't on the Lawless page? Lawless Anthology: Manlove EditionI don't want to be rude to the other authors in the series.

Thanks for the help!

If you want to have it listed in a series it's going to show up on there. Look at this one for example: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... it's an anthology and they are parts of a bunch of different series because of the various authors contributed a story from one of their series. The title happens to show the first series in gray but the others are listed down lower. It's a site thing.

Also RE the book numbering - GRs requires us to list short stories in decimal, not whole numbers.

From the manual: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4...

James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments That's odd. No problem. Can you please mark The Devil's Cum in His Eye as book 2 then. Thank you!

What would be book #1?


message 10: by James (new)

James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments Nope, The Devil's Cum in His Eye is book 2.

Thanks!!

It can't be book #2 if there is no book #1.


message 12: by James (new)

James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments Book 1 is The Lawless Anthology but above Corinne said that wouldn't work with Goodreads.

Through my publisher and my website:
Book 1: The Lawless Anthology Manlove
Book 2: The Devil's Cum in His Eye

:)

On Goodreads, those are #0.5 and #1.


message 14: by James (new)

James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments Yes, which is incorrect. It should be book 1 and book 2 as it is on my site and will be on my publishers site.

Thanks! :)

See message #7 in this thread. Goodreads has its own policy for numbering series.


message 16: by James (new)

James Cox (authorjamescox) | 119 comments That's no problem. Can you just change The Devil's Cum in His Eye to book 2 please. Thank you!

On Goodreads that book is #1 in the series. Please note that series numbering on Goodreads may differ from the numbering elsewhere, especially if the series includes novellas or shorts.

This thread has served its purpose. Closing thread.
