Could a data editor please look at the Alyssa Day books, please?  I know this is not the usual way to get book edits done, but submitting them by book seems to be making a mess because not all versions are getting changed at once and then the ones that were corrected are getting changed back. The Warriors of Poseidon book titles are messed up. The following is the order that they should be in:

 

Atlantis Rising (Warriors of Poseidon, Bk 1)

 

Wild Thing (an anology that contains Wild Hearts in Atlantis which is book 2)

 

 

Atlantis Awakening (Warriors of Poseidon, Bk 2) Book 3

 

Shifter (an anology that contains Shifter’s Lady which is book 4)

 

Atlantis Unleashed (Warriors of Poseidon, Bk 5) Book 5

 

Atlantis Unmasked (Warriors of Poseidon, Bk 4) Book 6 ??? Not listed on her site yet.

 

This is how the author herself lists the books on her site (http://www.alyssaday.com/thebooks.cfm) so I am not sure what support is being given to get them changed back. I think it is best to have the stand alone books labeled correctly so that people know they are missing a story in the middle.

 

Thanks for any help someone can give on this.

Mel

I approved one of Melanie's submissions.  The problem is that some of the stand-alone novels in the series are being counted as the only books in the series, and not the anthologies of short stories (Bks 2 & 4) and I think that is what is confusing some of the people submitting edits.  I put the series  books in the description to try to help clarify things and hopefully decrease and/or stop the revisions.

Warriors of Poseidon book titles. The following is the order that they should be in:

 

Atlantis Rising, Bk 1

Wild Thing (an anthology with Wild Hearts in Atlantis, Bk 2

Atlantis, Bk 3

Shifter (an anthology with Shifter’s Lady, Bk 4

Atlantis Unleashed, Bk 5)

Atlantis Unmasked Bk 6

One suggestion for when a problem like this crops up: you can put the list of books as they are numbered in each description--there is no reason that the information cannot stay there permanently.  This should work too: put in a note for the approver that you are fixing the numbering and give your support for doing so.
