Willow Aster | 4 comments Hello
I changed the title and cover for my book

initially - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

now this version is the current version - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I moved the ISBN from the original to the new version but this book is still not searchable in the search box and comes up with the old cover and title. Can you please help? I'm not sure how long it's supposed to take and/or if I am supposed to be doing something else.

Thank You!

Z-squared | 8580 comments For one thing, you've put the ASIN into the ISBN field. The new cover edition was already on GR. I deleted the duplicate. This is the resulting kindle edition with the new cover and the current ASIN:

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

To set it as the default edition, follow these instructions: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Be advised that searching by ASIN or ISBN will always bring up that particular edition. Searching by title will bring up the default edition. Unless you manually set it otherwise, the default edition is the one that users have shelved the most. Changes to titles/covers/default edition may take 24 hours to trickle through the site.

Willow Aster | 4 comments Thank you so much. Someone else had added the duplicate for some reason. I was able to set the default edition and then someone changed it back to the original cover and title. Is there any way to prevent this from happening again? Thanks!

I'd try setting it again and if it doesn't 'take' you'll need to contact support and ask for assistance.

support @ goodreads (dot) com

or at the bottom of each page of goodreads is a help link which leads to a Contact form.
