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.

Kelly Damon (rainbow_skychild) | 4 comments Thank you so much :) You are a life saver! Hugs :)

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

or that one
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.

link to contact GR support

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 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!
