Denna Davis (dennamdavis) | 5 comments Somehow, my book was added 3 different times, and now I can't really update any of them--or delete! This is the first book of my series and Book 2 is coming out really soon (4/21). So, I need to resolve this. The ISBN is 978-1518756337, (which is the #3 item below), but this is the one that is NOT under my author profile. And I can't add it as "my book" because it's somehow added by someone else or some other way.

Item #2 is the very old first version, it can be DELETED. It doesn't let me...

Item #1 has the reviews...which I'd like to move to #3, so that I can KEEP #3 with the reviews and the correct ISBN, so that I can also add my book 2 when it's ready...(4/21)

1. Emaji Nation: The Sparrow
2. Emaji Nation: The Sparrow
3. Emaji Nation: The Sparrow: Book One

Please, please, please help!

Denna Davis (dennamdavis) | 5 comments Yes, there is a physical book with ISBN and a ebook with ASIN. Ah, I see what happened there.

Can you merge to the physical copy (ISBN)?

Also, will I be able to update/edit this once it's done? The title is reading weird.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, BTW!!!

I merged the only edition lacking an ISBN or ASIN. The 3 remaining editions all need to remain.

The titles are now correctly formatted as per Goodreads policy.

Denna Davis (dennamdavis) | 5 comments Hmmm...the wording here is a little confusing. What do you mean by "3 remaining" editions?

1. Paperback
2. Kindle Edition
3. Old version (Kindle, I think...)

Denna Davis (dennamdavis) | 5 comments LOL! No, I meant there are only 3 editions. You said the "3 remaining" editions, as if there were more than 3. Are you seeing more than 3?? If so, we need to clean that up too..

Scott | 16340 comments The three other than the erroneous Kindle edition that was merged (deleted).
It may take a day or two for it to disappear completely.

Denna Davis (dennamdavis) | 5 comments Awesome!! Thank you guys so much. Final do I drop off all these notifications? LOL! Right now, I don't even see notifications from other things because my box is full with every topic in the Librarians group.

Thx again!
