L.C. Taylor (lctaylorpublishings) | 27 comments This particular version is no longer published. I have recently published a rework with all 5 books in the series. Do I need to have this one deleted? The new book as a brand new ASIN and ISBN, so I am not sure they should be merged. Please let me know!

Old Book:
Mystic Valley Shifters: Volume One

New version ASIN (not on goodreads yet) B07L8L5SZ3

Scott | 18480 comments Goodreads does not delete old or out of print books.

That ASIN contains five books, so it is not the same item anyway.

L.C. Taylor (lctaylorpublishings) | 27 comments Ok thanks! Does the old one still show up or is there a way to label not a book?


message 5: by Scott (new)

Scott | 18480 comments It is a book.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Goodreads keeps the old books because readers will have shelved them.

L.C. Taylor (lctaylorpublishings) | 27 comments It's not for sale any longer on any platform. I am trying to avoid confusion when searching here on goodreads. It's not a book any longer it's been deleted from print and reformatted completely.

Scott | 18480 comments Please see Abc's message. Just because it is not available any more doesn't mean someone mightn't have read it when it was. Someone has marked it to-read, so that person may have it on her device. It would be unfair to delete it and prevent her from entering it into her reading history.

Gotcha! Wasn't sure since there are no reviews on that particular version. Thanks for all your assistance.

Thanks for the info Scott. I didn't see ABC's post until now because we were responding at the same time. I got it now though. Sorry to be a bother!
