Pat (patdunlapevans) | 4 comments Hello. I would like to combine all editions of this novel so that all reviews apply to the most current version. I have tweaked the covers a number of times and corrected typos in interior pages, however, all versions are essentially the same.

TLAM PRINT VERSION
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0996882200
TLAM KINDLE VERSION
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B019978PWO

Please let me know how to achieve this. I am confused about how this works, but my main goal is to have all reviews apply to the most recent versions of my novel available on Amazon.

Thanks very much!

Pat (patdunlapevans) | 4 comments Also, I would like to combine all editions of my novel Out and In so that all reviews apply to the most current version. As above, I have tweaked the covers a number of times and corrected typos in interior pages, however, all versions are essentially the same.

OUT AND IN PRINT COPY: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0996882227
OUT AND IN KINDLE VERSION: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EVYDHAA

As I've indicated above, my main goal is to have all reviews apply to the most recent versions of my novels available on Amazon.

Thanks very much!

Pat (patdunlapevans) | 4 comments Thank you, Corinne, for straightening me out (somewhat).

I am not sure why Goodreads would show readers all of the various revisions of a novel, and designate them as "editions." To me, an "edition" should be something that is an official update, far different from the original. None of my so-called "editions" have ever been more than copy tweaks and creative revisions.

Regardless, I do appreciate your thoughtful reply and assistance.

Pat (patdunlapevans) | 4 comments Not in this new era—Indie authors continually revise our stuff to improve it, hopefully. We operate without benefit of a team of editors, proofreaders, or creative directors, so we are always catching things we did not find before. But we try!

Best,

Pat

If there are additional books needing corrections, please start a new thread.
