Νίκος (nzkgr) My book exists two times but it's the same version. This https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... is the version that needs to remain intact and this https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... is the version that needs to be deleted (it has some little info that is not correct anymore).

lethe | 13747 comments What info is not correct anymore? I only see Smashwords and the ISBN and those should not be deleted. GR doesn't delete out-of-print publications.

Edited to add: I have combined the two editions. If they are the same, they can be merged and the edition with the most info will be kept.

Νίκος (nzkgr) It's an eBook so there are no out-of-print versions. The version with the ISBN had a different cover image but for some reason the new one is there now. I don't know what needs to be done.

Edit: Thank you for combining the versions! Is it possible to send you the cover image of the old version so every version will have the correct cover?

lethe | 13747 comments You shouldn't take 'out-of-print' so literally, it just means 'no longer published' :)

If you could upload the old cover to your profile, that would be great, thanks.

Νίκος (nzkgr) I sent a message at your inbox with the links

Edit: in case you don't see the message in your inbox, here it is: This version https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... should have this http://i.imgur.com/PD1v6kW.jpg cover image.

Edit2: I have two pen names, one greek and one foreign, that's why the author names on the covers are different.

lethe | 13747 comments It's a bit of a mess. On the edition you want changed, the cover has always been the Greek one.

On the other edition, a cover change was done by a GR employee (as I discovered later). When I reverted the change, the cover you sent me showed up: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I don't know what to do about this. It is strictly forbidden to either switch covers or switch ISBNs.

Any supers or rivka around? Halp!

Νίκος (nzkgr) If things got complicated then leave it as it was and maybe we can find a solution later. For now it is enough for me that the two versions were combined. Thank you for your help!


message 8: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13747 comments You're OK with having both covers, even if it's not on the edition you wanted? Or do you want me to undo the cover change I did?


message 9: by Νίκος (new)

Νίκος (nzkgr) Undo the cover change for now.
