S.R. Grey (sr_grey) | 38 comments I am trying to edit the Boys of Winter series book number from 5.5 to 6 for Vows on Ice. I think I did that, but I now need it to be listed as book #6 in the Boys of Winter series home page and list, as seen here: https://www.goodreads.com/series/194747

And here is Vows on Ice that should now be book #6 (no longer 5.5).

Thanks!

As Vows on Ice is clearly labelled as a novella, #5.5 is the correct number. Edits reverted.

Wrong! Its now a short novel and why i asked for it to be changed in the series order listing.

Well I'm still working on it but it's at 160 atm.

I foresee at least another 20 pages on that.

At the time of your initial request you had not changed the book's description, nor mentioned the change in length when you made the request. So there was no way to know that. I see the book description has now been changed.

Also, please note that Amazon and Goodreads have different policies about series numbering. So the numbering on Amazon is often not relevant to the numbering on Goodreads.

And in this group, duplicate threads making the same request are generally deleted. It's confusing to have the same request more than once.
