This series has been transferred to another author :
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Amazon shows the ASIN numbers all attached to Avery Song with new covers with their name on it - I have been digging and can not seem to see if this is just a pen name for Yumoyori Wilson or a totally new author.

I did find a facebook post from the author " 𝑺𝑺𝑺 𝑺𝑬𝑹𝑰𝑬𝑺:
The Supernatural Spy Academy series has returned to its original name AND is being transferred over to me! There is a reason for this, and if you read Year 3, you should know why! I'm happy that I'll be apart of this by taking over since this series is dear to Yumoyori W Wilson!"

Not sure if I should create a whole new series under Avery Song and the combine the editions (since they have the same ASIN number) or what to do here...I did search through the manual but did not find much help...Any help would be appreciated!

When the same book is republished under a new name, the original author has to stay as primary author on all editions. It doesn't matter if it is a pen name, a variation on the original name or a different author.
