Amber Lynne Hughes | 3 comments I was trying to combine editions, but the wrong book was populated as the "main" one. Everything should be combined into "Rich in Love: A Collection of Short Romance Stories" as the only book on my profile.

I believe I need someone's help to make this happen.

Thank you in advance!

Amber Lynne Hughes | 3 comments I'm new at this, but the individual books were short stories that were reissued into one collection (Rich in Love). So I was trying to get the author listing to reflect that. :)

Scott | 16316 comments only identical works get combined.

That is, parts should not be combined with wholes, regardless of publication history.

However, if you wish, you can add a note to the descriptions of the shorts stating that they are now available in the collection. It can have a link to the book on Goodreads (but not a link to another site, as external links are not allowed in book descriptions on Goodreads).

Amber Lynne Hughes | 3 comments Okay, thank you. I’m sorry I did it wrong. Just trying to tidy up the page. :)
