Vincent Berg (vincentberg) | 2 comments I need to unlink the old and newer versions of my book "Stranded In a Foreign Land". The OLD title of the book is "Stranded", and since it was created first, it's ALWAYS the cover used whenever this book is referenced. I'd like to separate the books so the correct (newer) cover and title show when someone looks up the book.

I'd previously linked the books, so I'm unable to unlink them as the book's author. The books are published with a variety of different ISBN and AISN references, the various IDs are listed below:

Stranded:
o 9781495445057
o 09781310395611
o B00J0M8AXI
o A2NYBCYW1I

Stranded in a Foreign Land
o 9781941498194
o 9781941498187
o 9781941498811
o 9781941498170
o B017NEHCJM

Thanks in advance for helping me with this. I appreciate the extra effort required to straighten this situation out.

Goodreads does not separate old and revised edition of a work. However, as the author, you have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Vincent Berg (vincentberg) | 2 comments Thanks. That resolves my main complaint, while also preserving the earlier ratings and reviews. I continue learning something new all the time, despite having been doing this for some time.
