John Thomas | 4 comments Hi team,

My book currently has two editions:
first edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
second edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

The author of the first edition is correctly linked to below link
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

However, the author of the second edition isn't linked correctly. It is linked to below link
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Also, the second edition doesn't have the preview option like the first one.

Please help me in correcting these two issues.

Thanks and regards,
John Thomas

Fixed. For future reference, you are John-6space-Thomas. The extra spaces between your first and last names only show up on book edit pages and your profile edit page, but they tell the system which books are yours. When adding a book manually, be sure to include the extra spaces, and the book will go where it belongs.

Also reverted edits contrary to policy (ASIN stays with the first edition added to Goodreads, and ACE notes do not go in the edition field), and removed reviews/praise from book descriptions.

That's not something librarians can assist you with. If it doesn't show up in a couple days, you may wish to use the Contact Us link on the Help page.

This is not a question for the Librarians Group but for the Author Feedback Group: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/..., or you may want to contact support (at) goodreads (dot) com

Also, please start a new thread in future, as this one is tied to a particular book.
