Stephanie Flynn (stephanie_flynn) | 9 comments Hello!

My book SECONDS TO ACT, Curator Series Book One, was on my profile since launch in April but now it has moved to someone else's profile.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

My other book MINUTES TO LIVE, A Curator Series Prequel, I didn't know was on this site, but it too, is on this other profile.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Can these two linked books be added back to my profile?

Thanks,
Stephanie Flynn

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1762 comments Moved both to your profile.

Seconds to Act was removed from your profile because you edited the author name and deleted the two extra spaces between your first and last name. Goodreads uses extra spaces to tell the system which profile to put the book on, so those extra spaces need to stay.

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1762 comments I have also added the rest of the books to the database and set up a series for them.

A couple of questions.

First. Are the ebooks available outside of Amazon? If not, I will merge the duplicate ebook edition of the first book as on Goodreads ebooks on Amazon are listed as Kindle editions with the ASIN not an ISBN.

Second, is the prequel novella only available through a newsletter sign up?

Stephanie Flynn (stephanie_flynn) | 9 comments The prequel is only available upon newsletter sign up.

The rest of the ebooks are only available on Amazon, enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

The paperbacks, as they release, are wide.

On Goodreads, books that are only available via subscription to an author's newsletter are not considered valid book listings on Goodreads. I have submitted to delete that record. See section labeled shorts in the below link.

Ok, in that case the books should be listed as Kindle editions with ASIN. I have submitted to merge the duplicate edition of the first book with ISBN. You won't lose any reviews, they will transfer to the Kindle edition.

I didn't request the prequel to be added on the site. I just found it. And I didn't know there were duplicates of book one. Thanks for cleaning it up!
