Gabriel Blake (gabrielblake) | 4 comments I'm an author and my 1st book The Mother of all Things has so many editions. Ten, in fact. I made many mistakes early on. It looks a complete mess. I just wondered if there was a way to delete all but the latest with the newer cover, the word Mother in blood red? Linked here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
Six of the editions with Teal coloured lettering and are old and of no use, as goes for the two with no picture cover at all. I am not a librarian and was sent here by Faith, who is a member and Emily, who is an ambassador. I hope it is possible to tidy up the early mess I made by clearing out the old but maintaining any reviews.
Kind regards,
Gabriel

you will have to paste the original links. The link you supplied goes to Harry Potter.

I can tell you upfront that all editions that were available at some point need to remain.

How embarrassing. I have no idea how that happened as I have never even read Harry Potter or been to the page. How strange. The link is now fixed.

Links appear truncated in comments. If you copy and paste a truncated link, the link will automatically lead to Harry Potter.

F.e., if I copy and paste your now corrected link from your comment #1, it breaks off after the first digit: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
