Stephen Davies (stephen_davies) | 4 comments Hi there. My new YA novel BLOOD & INK is coming out soon, but there are a couple of problems with the Goodreads entry. First, it has the wrong cover - someone has uploaded a cover-in-progress image that will not be used as the final cover in any edition. Second, the book has been assigned to the wrong author. It should be under 'Stephen Davies (author of Outlaw)'. Help much appreciated. Thanks.

Empress (the_empress) You only need to add 5 space when adding your name to you book. (Better then 13!)

Book moved to your profile. Marked the paperback as ARC since it is not yet published and moved the ISBN to the new paperback edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Added cover for the e-book

See how to set a default edition: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Edit: Lethe, sorry I think we overlapped with this one.

lethe | 14207 comments Stephen, a few editions of Outlaw were also on the other Stephen's profile. Moved them to yours. One of them had the last three digits of the ISBN missing: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
If you know what it should be, please let us know.

Empress (the_empress) Lethe, a nice trick, go to all editions, expand the details and do a search by the partial ISBN13. You will find a mach with the second edition: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

It is possible to be different of course but with a lot of the cases this method works to narrow it down. In this case publisher is different.

lethe | 14207 comments Very nifty! Thanks :)

ETA And Clarion is an imprint of Houghton Mifflin, so I think it's correct.

2nd edit: Have merged them and recombined: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

Not a problem, glad I helped to solve this. "Merging one duplicate edition at a time" should be all librarians slogan :D

I have found the ISBN13 truncation and users removing the 978 from the ISBN13 are the most common mistakes when dealing with bad ISBN numbers.

Stephen Davies (stephen_davies) | 4 comments Embroidered above the mantlepiece, lol! I was thinking a tattoo, perhaps. Thank you both so much for sorting this out for me. Very best wishes.
