I tried to post a book, Santa in Montana by Janet Dailey.  When I entered the ISBN (9781420114744) the book came up as A Calder Christmas, which is on the back of the book as part of the description.  How do I post this?

It looks like it is the same book, just had the title changed in production.  I'd post it, and submit a book data edit with the complete title "Santa in Montana: A Calder Christmas".   Include a link to Amazon to support the edit.

Book data edits are one of the pull down options on the book description page.

There's an error somewhere Terri, sometimes we see typos on the back cover ISBN.  Double check your numbers.  Then check the copyright page, there's usually an ISBN printed there.  Is it possible the book has been retitled, and both are correct?

Doing a little checking, this might be one for the Data Correction team.  At a guess, maybe this listing was generated before the book release and the title was changed before publishing?  Everything for that ISBN at Amazon matches, except the actual title - which they list same as your book (Santa in Montana).  A Calder Christmas (as shown here at PBS) could have been a working title used before publication and never corrected in the PBS data base?
