Imzadi | 9 comments There are two book translation that were never released. Instead the first got new title and new cover. And the second one will be released later with different ISBN / ASIN.

The Library note states the following:

librarian note for this book (last edited by Georgeana at 06. Januar, 10:29 Uhr)
DO NOT CHANGE INFORMATION ON BOOKS, EVEN IF THEY ARE OUT OF PRINT. Librarians who do so may have their librarian status revoked. Add a new edition instead of changing ISBNS/covers/publication details.

But the thing is, it isn't simply out of print. Instead they were never released in 2017.

The only statemate of the publisher I could fine is this facebook post:

LYX Verlag Liebe Marita, ich habe schon Antwort aus dem Lektorat. Da der erste Band nur wenige Vorbestellungen hatte, haben wir uns entschlossen, den Titel zurückzuziehen und dem Buch in einem späteren Programm eine zweite Chance zu geben. Wir glauben, dass der Roman noch viel mehr Potenzial hat, dies aber möglicherweise nicht sichtbar ist, weil wir den Titel nicht ganz passend verpackt haben. Wir prüfen gerade die Möglichkeiten, wie wir Kerrigan Byrnes Reihe doch noch den deutschen Leserinnen zugänglich machen können, entweder als digital-only-Ausgabe oder auch als Taschenbuch-Ausgabe, dann aber mit neuem Cover. Also, Daumen drücken, dass er dann mehr Anklang findet. LG, Chrissie

What the statement comes down to, is that pre-orders were pretty low and that it will probably be released at a later date and they would review how to appeal to readers.

Which they are now doing with different covers and a new title for the first one:

These are new new editions:

Amazon liste them as 1. editions:

So what I am asking is, should those unreleased books really remain?

Renske | 11546 comments Books that never have been published can be removed, but we have to be very careful with that and the dates listed are a while ago, so I suggest you contact the staff about this https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta...
