James Blatch | 2 comments Hello - apologies for the long list of revisions needed!

We took over the publication of a series after author Robert Storey died last year. The contract start date was Feb 1st 2020.

The series of six books and two boxsets is showing very out of date titles, covers and blurb on Goodreads. Robert initially published the first three books under a different title sequence.

I can provide any further help needed including sight of contract if necessary.

Thank you in advance,

James.

Sandra | 24689 comments First off, I've let GR staff know that Robert has passed away. So his author profile will change from a GR author to author profile.

GR doesn't remove out of date editions, think of us as a library.

All the titles were up to date, but not the covers or blurbs, you were looking at the old editions which didn't have the asins/isbns so they wouldn't link to amazon correctly. The default edition which shows up is always the most popularly shelved edition, unless the author has changed it. Looks like Robert never selected the default editions. Librarians cannot add default editions.

As you've reused the asin/isbns I'll create ACEs (alternative cover editions) which will have the asin/isbns & updated descriptions & covers.
