Mattheau LeDuc | 1 comments Hello Group,

I'm new to this platform and still trying to navigate my way around it, so if I've come to the wrong spot, please just let me know.

I'm trying to merge two of my books; 'The Warsaw Papers' & 'TORN' into one book, with TORN being the newest edition to keep, and deleting The Warsaw Papers.

I had gone through a complete series update on Amazon (new cover, new series name and new title change), however both of these books contain the same manuscript inside. -I'm not even sure how 'The Warsaw Papers' made it onto your site in the first place.

I wasn't sure how to go about taking care of this, everything I searched online said I'd have to reach out to the Librarian Community, so that's what I'm doing.

I'm currently running some ads to drive traffic to the Goodreads site and I don't want to confuse anyone if they see the older version up, but I would like to retain the 5Star Rating it has, as well as transfer the "shelved" status it has for several people.

Thanks so much in advance...
