Richard Wolkomir | 3 comments I just added my latest novel to Goodreads, a thriller called "Caliban Rising." I thought it would be best to combine the Kindle and paperback editions, but when I tried to do that, I got the message that I must combine two editions, which is exactly what I was trying to do.

I'm confused. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks.

Abcdarian | 23346 comments They are already combined. This would make it look like one edition to the combine function. If you added either edition using the "Add a new edition" link, they would be automatically combined. Maybe that's what happened?

Richard Wolkomir | 3 comments Thank you--I'm not sure what happened, but if they're combined, so they are.

I thought they'd appear as they do in the Amazon bookstore, as one image with a choice, paperback edition or Kindle edition, so anyone happening upon the book and interested, would see they had that choice. Given enough time, I may yet get the hang of all this.

Again, thanks. It's appreciated.

Here, you get that by clicking on Other Editions or More Editions on the book page: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

Richard Wolkomir | 3 comments Thanks, Lethe.

I have a number of books on Goodreads, besides this new novel, but apparently I'm still learning some of the ropes, or maybe all of the ropes.

Again, thanks--I greatly appreciate the help.

Best, Richard Wolkomir
