Stephanie Kay | 10 comments I tried to edit this and combine them, but was unable to. Could you please combine them so the Amazon link and reviews merge?

Corrected author name/spacing and combined.

Stephanie Kay | 10 comments Thanks. Is there a way to get the cover to show on the other edition and to link Amazon and KU purchase links to the first edition listed? Thanks

Added Amazon cover to valid Kindle edition; the other was a stray with no identifying pub details, so I've queued that for merge. You can't use the purchase links for editions with no ASIN/ISBN, etc.

That's not completely accurate. The links can still be used, but in the absence of an ISBN or ASIN, they will search by title. For a book with an uncommon title, that can work relatively well. For books with very common words in their titles, it tends not to be as useful.
