Dave Lundy (dave_lundy) | 9 comments Dave Lundy

I created a new edition with the exact same name (and with the new book cover, ISBN left blank) and they both show up on my author page, but when I go to combine, the new one is not list. https://www.goodreads.com/book/combin...

Can someone help? Thank you very much.


Dave Lundy (dave_lundy) | 9 comments What happened? It looks like the new edition I created has been deleted? I even noted it with the original ISBN as was suggested in this article I read on goodreads for help.

Dave Lundy (dave_lundy) | 9 comments You can see the new cover is here https://www.amazon.com/Squish-Fish-Ta... I'd like the cover to be updated or at least primarily used as the once you see on Amazon. Thank you so much.

Dave, no one deleted it. It looks like the book record got a bit confused (it's here https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...), which usually self-corrects in a day or so.

I see "page unavailable". That's okay? Thanks

When it self-corrects, that link should go to the proper book page.


Dave Lundy (dave_lundy) | 9 comments Okay, thank you Rivka. I'll keep a watch :)

Alex | 2739 comments The record has self-corrected, so I combined it with the rest and added some ACE notation. I also took the liberty of making the Kindle Edition's ACE here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

As the author of this book, you can set the default edition (the one that appears in searches by title and on your profile) by following the instructions found here:
https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Could you inform me of the exact date the cover change took effect?

ETA: I also removed the cover from the additional photos, as that is against GR policy.


Dave Lundy (dave_lundy) | 9 comments Thank you very much. The exact date the cover change took effect was 3/17/17.

Alex | 2739 comments Thank you, updated the Kindle edition. Is it the same date for the paperback?

Pamela Morris (pamela_morris) | 16 comments I need a cover change\update for "Secrets of the Scarecrow Moon".

Current cover can be found on Amazon.
https://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Scarec...

I also need this cover\edition to be set as the primary edition for both Kindle and paperback.

Thank you,
Pamela

Yes it is. Should the kindle and paperback be combined for both versions?

Is there a way to make the new version with the new cover when clicking on Amazon go straight to the Amazon listing for the book? It goes to a "squish the fish" search page now I think.

Thank you all for your help.

(but readers do know that and are able to deal with that)

Thanks. It says there are 3 editions now. It looks like the original cover for the kindle and paperback had different publication dates. I fixed that and made them the same date. Will that eventually resolve the 3 editions issue and make it 2?

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6162 comments the kindle and the paperback editions will always stay different editions - they are exactly that,so your editions look correct paperback with old and new cover and kindle with old and new cover. Which are in total 4 editions - and 3 "other editions" if you have clicked on one.
Readers do want to shelf the edition they own - in format and in cover, so if I would have your kindle edition with the new cover I'd want to shelf that and not the paperback with the new one or the kindlewith the old one.
