Cora Clark (coraclark) | 9 comments Not sure where my original post about this went, so I am posting again.

Deadly Seduction was updated to the new cover, however, the old cover is still the one showing on my author profile, and when clicking on the book, that can't be right? I see no point in updating it in that case?

Can someone please have a look?
(The black and white cover is NOT the current one)

Only the primary author (in this case, your pen-name's account) can set the default. The instructions are here: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Thanks, Cora Clark is the primary author (amazon doesn't even show M. M. Wedin as the author at all) but I get that Goodreads doesn't want to update that.

Will follow instructions.

The cover of the first edition has M.M. Wedin.

Yeah it was, then I moved it to a pen name, which Amazon was happy to update. But never mind, I have already tried to get M. M. removed but it won't happen it seems. Just difficult when you want to separate genres on different pen names. Not your fault though

Emily | 12966 comments Please leave M.M. Wedin as the primary author and Cora Clark as the secondary author so that the books will be correctly combined.

From the M.M. profile, you can set the default edition as the one with the newest cover using the directions in message #2 above.

I can easily see that it can be updated to properly display who is the author, which is Cora Clark.

I have beta and ARC readers getting really confused when finding Deadly Seduction and Criminal Protection here under 'M. M. Wedin', and I have Wedin readers getting confused as well.

The correct way to display the author is by removing M. M. Wedin from the CURRENT edition. Would it then work if I separate the old and new editions? Would that be enough for the name to be removed?

This is proving to give a lot of headaches and anxiety, having to explain to people constantly why it is displayed incorrectly.

lethe | 13555 comments All editions should stay combined, and all must have the same primary author, to prevent system glitches.

If you want to challenge Goodreads policy and have the current author name as primary on all editions, please contact Support. Librarians are not staff.
