K.D. Martel | 13 comments I accidentally combined my books into one edition and cannot separate them. I also can't use the "series" tool because of this. Please fix. Thanx!

Sandra | 26902 comments Separated. However, authors can't create or edit series. The titles also don't meet GR standards ~ series info goes to the end not the beginning.

Fixing & creating the series.

K.D. Martel | 13 comments Sandra
this edition has not been combined, it is an old cover. Can you please combine it ?
Also, all the reviews have disappeared from books one and two?

Sandra | 26902 comments Queued 2 duplicate editions for merging and found a stray edition under a different author profile.

Added a cover to one of the books also.


message 6: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26902 comments The reviews are cached so they'll take a day or 2 to properly go where they should be.

As to #4 it needed to be separated so that the merge can go through, when its done I'll combine it.

K.D. Martel | 13 comments Thanx so much Sandra, you're amazing! :)))))))

Sandra | 26902 comments 1 merge has gone through & I've recombined the stray #1 book, still awaiting a duplicate paperback for #2.

Abcdarian | 23396 comments Goodreads doesn't remove older editions as some readers will have shelved them. If any of them are showing as the default edition, here's how to set a different one: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments #13 Goodreads does not delete out-of-print books or editions.
Please see https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2... and https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...


message 16: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Martel | 13 comments They are not the default edition. In reality, they are not different editions, just that the covers were updated.


message 17: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26902 comments That makes them different editions by GR standards.


message 18: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Martel | 13 comments They are just different book covers, not different editions. Same books, I just made the newest covers as the default book.

Ok, no problem. Thanx!

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments K.D.,
Please do not change data on the existing editions,

I reverted changes against the policy from ebook to paperback on this edition.

Hi Olivia
the first link you posted does not have the amazon link activated anymore?


message 22: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments That's because this is an ebook and ebooks are not available on Amazon.
Amazon ebooks are called Kindle editions and are identified by ASIN instead of ISBN and are listed separately on Goodreads,

Ok, then the Amazon button should be removed, or do I just make the paperback edition the default edition? Since my kindle and paperbacks are listed on the same page on Amazon whenever someone clicks on an Amazon link they are taken to both versions immediately. I don't see how anyone can be taken to a kindle version at this moment?


message 24: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments This is Kindle edition:

You can make it a default one if you wish.
