mlady_rebecca | 593 comments I just finished updating the not yet published book "Prisoner of the Crown" with cover, blurb, and other details directly from the author.

I now find a placeholder entry that was shelved more times than the corrected entry.

I know how to combine the books, but I recall it was tricky to then delete the edition that was shelved the most.

The two books titled "Exile of Dasnaria (The Lost Princess Chronicles)" should go, but I was hoping to preserve the shelvings.

Hoping a more experienced librarian or maybe a super librarian can take a look at this. I don't want to mess up the work that has taken several hours already.

Thank you!

Z-squared | 8580 comments We have to go with the ASINs first, and add info as on Amazon. I deleted the duplicates, corrected the title fields, and added the cover of Exile of the Seas (which was the only one missing).

For the series, things were getting needlessly tangled, so I created/revised the following series pages:

Twelve Kindgoms: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1248...
Uncharted Realms: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1803...
Chronicles of Dasnaria:
https://www.goodreads.com/series/2299...
Complete Universe, Publication order: https://www.goodreads.com/series/2299...

mlady_rebecca | 593 comments I added a cover for Exile of the Seas. Wonder what happened to it.

Thank you for handling the duplicates.
