message 1: by Steven (last edited Apr 13, 2019 03:20PM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Steven | 12 comments Hi there! I created the listing for the book, but can't seem to edit it anymore. There's two issues:
1) The assistant editor BC Holmes isn't linked to the same author profile as https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
2) The illustrator 'Vivian Ng' is now going by 'Killian Ng.' ( https://twitter.com/VViiNNG )

Thanks for your help!

Cover artists should not be added as authors on Goodreads. Neither should the logo or bookplate creator. Removed them, and edited some author names to Goodreads standard.

Also, the ISBN13 was placed in the ISBN10 slot, so it got truncated. What is the full ISBN13?


Steven | 12 comments The ISBN is 978-0-9949374-7-6.

In comics and graphic novels, the cover artist is often a key part of the sales hook. Our cover artist, Naomi Franquiz, illustrates Marvel's "Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" and a number of other comics that match our audience.

Scott | 17263 comments ISBN-13 added.
If you have the ISBN-10 as well, that would make for smoother store linkage.


Steven | 12 comments I thought ISBN-10s were for pre-2007 books? Shout Out is hitting the market in May this year.


message 7: by Scott (new)

Scott | 17263 comments No, books still have ISBN-10.
If you don't have it's not a big deal. The Amazon link will just not go directly to the book page.

If no ISBN10 is listed on a book record, most of the links (including Amazon) will default to searching by ISBN13.

ISBN10s are not required to be listed.
