Kelly Damon (rainbow_skychild) | 4 comments Hello :)
I am a very dumb person who did a very dumb thing. I completely misunderstood how combining works, and unintentionally combined my own books Resfeber and The Fifth Warrior (all formats). So basically 2 different books, in 2 different formats each, have now become one. Whoops.

Not sure if I am allowed two questions, but I also did a dumb thing long ago in setting a cover image to the Fifth Warrior before publishing. I published under a different cover (The current ebook cover) but the old, never actually used cover was still there before I hit combine. Is there anyway to update the cover? I will republish 2nd editions under official ISBNs (not AISNs) and it would be quite an annoyance to have 3 different versions when 2 will suffice. Please help. I will be forever thankful :)

P.S forgive me if these Q's don't belong here. I REALLY don't know what I am doing on this site.

lethe | 13561 comments Book Issues is the correct folder for combined questions.

I have separated the books. I will let someone else look into the cover issue.

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6162 comments Which is the cover you are talking about?
that one? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... that was uploaded after pub date by bot so GR considers it as published
but that's the ebook version ...

or that one https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
that has no format mentioned but was uploaded pre pub - but as we're not allowed to delete covers if we are not really really sure they never existed (not even for a short time) published I'll recommend contacting support and maybe the do delete it.
I don't think librarians can decide that - because it's just impossible to proof something never existed that far in the past.

and don't worry if combining all books would be called dumb you're not the only one - and you only had two books so that was not that bad at all.
That happens quite regularly (and I must admit I do like doing separations) so no need to feel dumb.

Kelly Damon (rainbow_skychild) | 4 comments Hi Lachgas :) Thank you so much for your response!

Yes the ebook version's cover is the published cover for both books. I just got ahead of myself at the time of listing the book.
So just to clarify this cover https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... should be both paperback and ebook. The other was a placeholder and was never published.

Thank you for the link to GR support and for the kind words haha. It makes me feel better about myself!
