Fran Sorin (fransorin) | 3 comments Hello,

Currently this edition of my book, which is the edition listed for my giveaway going on right now, has a broken link when you try to click on the "Amazon" button. Can this be changed ASAP so it goes to the correct page?

Here's the book on GR: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

And the Amazon page: http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=x...

Thank you!

Fran Sorin (fransorin) | 3 comments Thanks for your note, Ashley.

So is this a problem every author has? It cannot be resolved?

The ISBN10 had the wrong final digit. Fixed.

(It also needs to be merged with the edition with the corresponding ISBN13, but we'll wait to do that until the giveaway is over.)

That is quite untrue. It works with any edition listed on Amazon under the same identifier, ASIN or ISBN. For ebooks, which are only listed on Amazon as Kindle editions, that means ASINs. For paperback, hardcover, etc., it means ISBNs.

Ah, thanks, Rivka. I mostly only read ebooks, so that has been true for me up til now. Good to know!
