Emily Hurricane (eshurricane) | 4 comments Hi there! I flagged this as one of my books, but it affects all of them. I've recently switched all of my books on Amazon to different pennames to organize them from a business perspective, and am trying desperately to update it here on Goodreads.

I tried to update with new editions to then combine them, but when I try to create a new edition it won't let me because the ASIN is the same (I just updated my current amazon uploads, so the ASIN didn't change). Then I did an alternate cover edition, but now that won't let me combine the editions.

I saw in a previous post that author names can't be changed on GR. If that's the case, would it be possible to just delete all of my book listings so I can add them again as new titles? Or am I stuck just adding the new pennames as secondary author?

Thank you so much for your time!

Scott Looks like you created the alternate editions okay, and they are combined. Two things:

1. You'll need to have support change your name to the properly-punctuated one.

2. The new editions still have to have Emily S. Hurricane as the primary author.
