H.B. Lyne (hblyne) | 6 comments Hi Librarians,

I've relaunched an old series with a new title. Could someone please set up a series page and link the correct versions of my books to it?

The series title is Shifters of Caerton.

Working on combining the books, you can change the default edition that shows:

H.B. Lyne (hblyne) | 6 comments Honestly, I'm kind of frustrated as this now looks an absolute mess and is bound to be confusing for readers. There are titles here now that really shouldn't be.

1. Books published with one series name maintain that name if the series name is changed.

2. Readers who have already read and shelved those books want to keep the version they own. For that same reason, out of print editions are not removed from Goodreads.

3. The appropriate note on the series page clarifies the series name change.

To streamline your series & author page, you can determine the default editions.

I haven't requested the removal of old books. I've simply asked that my current editions be linked together as a series. However, it's now a mess with old versions and new versions all mixed up. I can't see how this is helpful for readers...

I'm sick of being told repeatedly to set the new versions as the default. I HAVE DONE THIS ALREADY!
