Maggie Scivicque | 9 comments i need help editing the book listing for Why Not Them? It needs to have the author changed to Lloyd M. Lewis and Corinne Joy Brown and not be combined with the other author with the same name Lloyd Lewis. Can one of you wonderful librarians help me to do that? Also the link the the Amazon seems to be broken. Can someone out there help me to do this? thank you so much for your help!

The Amazon links are based on the ISBN/ASIN numbers, so they wouldn't work for ebook editions as these are different than Kindle editions.
The link would work for paperback though

J (ceejayess) | 4 comments A book is being assigned to the wrong author (both spell their names the same way): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

It should be assigned to this author: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

I can't figure out how to assign the correct author short of deleting the entry and starting a new one (but I cannot delete as there are "reviews" on the entry). Any Advice?

Maggie Scivicque | 9 comments You are amazing ladies thank you! Now i have one more issue, the ISBN number is appearing wrong it should be 978-1-947841-60-4 which is why it isnt linking to Amazon correctly. Im so sorry to ask for more help, clearly i am a novice on this. thank you for your help!

this ISBN is for paperback edition that I linked in message #2.
The edition with the cover is an ebook, so it will not have a working link to Amazon.
