Leona Keyoko Pink (keyoko) | 34 comments Two books have multiple versions out

Kept was published in the last few days and there seems to be 3 of them. I believe their suppose to be under the Kept(Bound #1) The other books that are showing are Bound Volume one Kept, and Kept(Bound Book 1). Also Bound is a series. Can it be made a series here or do I need to post on another thread? Just let me know what is most convenient for you. Right now there is only one book out in the series.

The second book is Head Star Academy
It has another book posted that just says Head Star Academy. HSA is also in a Series.

Also thank you so much for your time. If you have any questions let me know

lethe | 13730 comments For Kept, I found (and combined) two Kindle editions, one with and one without an ASIN: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...
I also found an ebook. Before I combine them all, is it correct that there are two Kindle editions, or should there be only one?

Leona Keyoko Pink (keyoko) | 34 comments I know this must sound so stupid but i'm not exactly sure what editions are>< Kept is an ebook. I know some site make them into books and we have it on some sites that have like kindle edition and some sites that say ebook so i'm not sure if thats edition or you mean like different text. They are both the same book if that is what your asking. Apologies again for my ignorance.

lethe | 13730 comments Don't worry about it. Kindle is an ebook format specifically for Amazon. It uses ASIN numbers. Other booksellers use different ebook formats, usually with an ISBN.

The Kindle versions looked like duplicates, so I went ahead and merged them and combined with the ebook:https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...
I also created a series: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1528...

I combined both Head Star Academy editions. Is Head Star Academy also the title of the series?

HSA is the title of the series. It would be H. S. A. We figure we might do a word play on the later books but the initials would be H. S. A. Thank you so much for doing this for me by the way

Also I wrote -https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... Cause i have another book in a series. Visions of the Maiden is book 1 in The Guiding Books. Visions of the Maiden I mention that i had the two other books (which was in reference to Bound and HSA series. I just dont want there to be any confusion. I wasnt sure if i should go to specific places for specific questions sorry if i made a mess of things. I know I have alot of Series >< lol

lethe | 13730 comments The two editions of Head Star Academy were both ebooks (one with, one without ISBN) and I couldn't find a Kindle version, so I merged the two and added a series: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1528...

Thank you H.S.A Series look amazing

lethe | 13730 comments I'll respond to your other question in the other thread.

But basically it's OK to post several requests about the same book, or similar requests about different books, in one thread. It's more confusing if you would post a request to combine in one thread, to add a cover in another, and to add a series in yet another thread if it's all about the same book. (I think I've confused myself now :-) )
