DB Lorgan (dblorgan) | 10 comments I have an author page now and I had listed my recently released novel before the author page was up.
Now I have it on it but the old entry is still visible. Thus two listings for the same book.
I cant enter an isbn on my author page yet since the first book is there. Can we take it off the site so there is only one and it is on my author page.

Abcdarian | 20080 comments The author in the second edition was written with no spaces (DBLorgan). I moved it to your profile and merged it with the first edition.

DB Lorgan (dblorgan) | 10 comments Thank you soooo much!!
Is there a way to keep them separate though? (The first and second edition}
It is not a extension of the first it is a rewriting and enhancement of the story.
I also want the second edition title as I have it now.

Abcdarian | 20080 comments They were combined by another (and much higher up) librarian, so I hesitate to separate. I see that the second edition is much longer than the first though.

DB Lorgan (dblorgan) | 10 comments Can you approach this person( or someone) and tell them I want them separate. I am going to be doing some very extensive advertising and I want them separate.

Goodreads combines different editions of a work, even if there have been revisions.

You may wish to set the newest edition as the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how:
