Nes | 4 comments I just got a digital copy of the book Burned, and I went to add it to my shelves. But, the author listed on my edition is not A. Blythe, but rather Annabel Chase and it does not appear when I search for "Burned Annabel Chase". I assume that this is indicative of a change in the author's name. However, the ebook I received, with Annabel Chase as it's author, still uses the same ASIN, B01DFCMS5E, as the old edition where the author is listed as A. Blythe.

I'm not sure if I should create a new edition because the ASIN hasn't changed, but the book and it's sequels do not appear under the author's new name on goodreads.

Edit: Checking the books published by Annabel Chase, the earliest book published is Curse the Day on January 7th, 2017. The last book published under A. Blythe is Soulfire on April 4th 2017.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Hi Nathan,
a new Alternate Cover Edition needs to be created.
It needs to have A. Blythe as a primary author and Annabel Chase as a secondary author.

Also, ASIN should be moved to the new edition and it's best to add librarian notes.

Exact release date of the new cover is unknown, but it appears to be recent. Set pub date of new edition to 2018.
