Peter Black (peterblackcbe) | 6 comments Help! I have just updated details on my novel and it has disappeared from my author page. I suspect it has been reassigned to another author of the same name. Can this be corrected please and it be put back on my page? The book is The Only Game in Town ISBN: 979-8636188247 and my profile is here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Emily | 15018 comments There are seven spaces between your first and last name in the author field. I have moved it back to your profile and removed your name from the title field.

Peter Black (peterblackcbe) | 6 comments Thank you Emily. Do you know why the Amazon link is not working? I have added the ISBN and ASIN but it still draws a blank. It works for my other book. Sorry I am still feeling my way around Goodreads. Thanks

Emily | 15018 comments Paperback books use ISBNs. The ASIN only works for Kindle editions. It is correct the way it is now.
Unfortunately, the Amazon link will not work for physical books that do not have an ISBN10. The new 979 ISBNs do not have a corresponding ISBN10, while the older 978 ISBNs do. This is something that Goodreads would have to redesign, so I don't know that it will work anytime soon or if that is in the works.

I have only figured this out in the last few weeks by trial and error. :-)

Thanks. I found it on Goodreads and moved it to your author profile.

If you would like it to be the primary edition since the Amazon link works from there, follow these directions.
