Patricia M Osborne (patriciamosborne) | 5 comments Please can you merge my novel The Coal Miner's Son on to my author dashboard - It appears to have two other entries besides the one I've added on my dashboard

Is it possible to merge them all together and have on my author page.

1. I combined the editions under your profile.

[just to offer some education:]
2. I deleted the edition you added.
**a. It was identified as a paperback
**b. Paperbacks use ISBN/ISBN13
**c. There is never an occasion to use an ASIN and an ISBN on the same edition
**d. The ISBN13 was in the ISBN10 field. If you get errors when trying to add an ISBN, stop and ask someone in the Librarian's group to help you. [that is the most common reason people put the ISBN13 in the ISBN10 field]
**e. The Kindle edition ASIN was in the ISBN13 field. As in item #2d above, if you cannot add the ASIN, that means you should stop and ask for help in this group. The most common reason people put the ASIN in the ISBN13 field is that it is in use elsewhere.

3. Kindle editions are a different format than any other ebook edition; they are exclusive to Amazon; and they always use the ASIN, which should not be used with any other edition.

4. You now have one valid paperback edition, with the correct ISBN/ISBN13, and one valid Kindle edition, with the correct ASIN remaining.

5. I have set up a series for your House of Grace books.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
