Dana aka ♥Belladonna♥  (belladonnas) | 4 comments Please help. I don't know what to do about this one.

These books are identical (on the inside), yet have different titles, covers, and author names. The original author reviewed the new version, so it doesn't look to be plagiarism. Can these books be combined? Or is this something for GR staff to look into?

When Love Meets a Man
Mr. Lust

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

PS. Both versions are still being sold on Amazon.

In some cases, a book may be originally published under a pen name, but then later reissued under the author's original name. When this happens, the author listed for any and all editions should be the author name the book was originally published under - so the reissued edition would need its primary author name changed to the originally published pen name, with the additional name added as secondary for all editions with it on the cover. Doing this will allow the various editions to be combined.

All fixed.
