Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi again, I have some more issues to fix.

My box set needs an updated cover: (can provide if needed)

Also, these two books are listed against the wrong author:

They should be attached to my account.

Lastly, these two editions are the same (with the old cover) so can they please be combined?

Thank you very much,

P.S. The last time I posted this, two days ago, it came up as a "topic" under my book instead of in this group. Is that some kind of glitch?

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments I found the post you copied the links from here:

I moved the books to your profile, combined and corrected titles to Goodreads standards.

The two editions listed are combined.
If you meant merge (delete one edition) this can't be done as these are different editions (ebook and Kindle).

I'm not sure if the post was a glich or if you just miss-clicked something posting your request not where you wanted.

I'm leaving cover update for another librarian.

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi,

Thanks very much for replying.

Yes, that post you linked is what happened the last time I tried to post to this group. I put all the details in, then it took me to a new page to complete a captcha and type in a book that the topic was about, and then allowed me to post it. Hasn't happened to me before.

Anyway, thanks for moving the books into my profile but I'm confused about the book merge request. All of my books have only ever been in Amazon, therefore Kindle, so are you saying that if someone uploads a book version that is incorrect (like hardcover), that I, as the author, am unable to ask for that to be corrected?

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Kerry,
I see that you undone all my work correcting the titles.
Please note that the titles were corrected to comply with Goodreads standard.

Also, you have added this ebook edition with ISBN in 2014.
If this edition was never published you would need to contact support to have it removed.

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi Olivia,

Thanks for getting back to me. I'll look into the book with an ISBN as none of my Kindle edition titles have ISBNs, so this is probably not accurate.

With regard to the book titles, what I corrected them to is the published titles. The "series name" is part of the published title, similar to Harry Potter or Mission Impossible. It's not a subtitle or a footnote on the cover. It wasn't actually a series name until I'd written a couple of books and was advised to create one and went simple. Perhaps I should have taken more time to think about that. Anyway, I imagine that accuracy is part of Goodread's standards, and the full titles are accurate.
