I have tried posting a book, but there seems to be a problem with the ISBN #0739428918. The name of my book is Women's Intuition by Lisa Samson. But the book that comes up is True Honor by Dee Henderson. What do I do with this situation??

Ok, well that makes sense. Common sense should have told me that, but I seem to be a bit lacking in that these days. :)

Linda--

I don't mean to over simplify things, but you might also double check that you are using the right ISBN.  It isn't unusual for a publisher to "recycle" an ISBN and assign it to more than one book, but the sources I usually check for that are only showing "True Honor" under that ISBN.  Sometimes, for reasons I don't understand, publishers include ISBNs for other books as well, even on the back of the title page (i.e. "Also by this publisher, read "How to Confuse PBS Members" ISBN 123456789).

If you confirm that is the true ISBN, as others have said, you'll have to post it as a non-ISBN book.

Cheers,

Catt

It happens sometimes. I have a Diana Palmer hardcover that comes up as a completely different book.  It's actually an anthology that looks like a book club edition.  The ISBN brings up another, completely different anthology on PBS and Amazon.

I defiitely had the ISBN correct, and it must have happened to others because there's at least 3 other HBs entered w/o the ISBN. But mine is listed now successfully. Thanks to everyone who posted and helped me with this.
