Cecelia Mecca (ceceliamecca) | 33 comments Hello!

I made a change to my book series numbers, and though I changed it myself, a reader just noted that they are still incorrect in Goodreads. In order to reflect the correct series numbers (and match the ISBN and Amazon data):

The Protector's Promise should be 7 (not 6.5)

The Rogue's Redemption should be 8 (not 7)

Thank you!

This is GR policy and is not dependent on what Amazon does.

Cecelia Mecca (ceceliamecca) | 33 comments Hi Sandra,

I talked with some authors about what I should do to make it less confusing for readers, including the possibility of cover re-designs etc., and they said they've been able to list novellas with whole numbers.

Book series that are made up entirely of novellas should be numbered with integers.
