Scott Reardon | 7 comments Hi, the following books have been attributed to me, but aren't books that were ever published. I'd like to get them removed because they state that they're the second book in the series I've written, but they are not. They aren't part of the series at all because they never existed.

Here are the ISBNs for the books that never existed:
1. 0316310948 (ISBN13: 9780316310949)
2. 0316310964 (ISBN13: 9780316310963)
3. B078W6F2B6
4. 0316310956 (ISBN13: 9780316310956)
5. 1478936835 (ISBN13: 9781478936831)

I'd really appreciate it if someone could remove these for me. Please let me know if I'm not posting in the correct place.

Unfortunately, all have valid pub data/ISBNs/ASINs, so no librarian is able to remove them for you per GR policy. If they have never been published/never will be, your only option is to contact support- https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta....

Scott Reardon | 7 comments Thanks. I've reached out to them. Is there anything that can be done in the meantime to make sure that potential reviewers don't leave reviews connected to those books?

Those books claim to be the second book in the series I'm writing, but they aren't. They were never published. However, the actual second book in the seris--titled THE DARK CONTINENT--is going live today. I'm worried readers will be confused, and I'll miss out potential reviews.

I've clearly labeled both #1 & #2 in the series, and those are the only two linked in the actual series. That may make it less confusing for your readers.

You also have the ability as the author to set the default edition for a title, which would appear in title searches and on your author page- follow these steps.
