When ever I post a new harlequin I get the fill in the info screen. and I just now tried to post a new one and it gave me a wron book name and I double checked the ISN and its right.. Is there a glitz in the system?

Sometimes publishers re-use numbers.  I suspect you might have to post it manually with a special PBS number.

  • If your book does NOT match the information in the Book Listing Preview:

    • If it is a minor difference, such as a misspelled title or the wrong author first name, you can post the book and submit corrections afterward using the Edit Book Data link.
    • If the booktype is different (if your book is a paperback, and the Preview shows hardcover, for example):
      • You will need to post the book without an ISBN
    • If the book title says "(Large Print)" and your book is regular-size font:
      • You will need to post the book without an ISBN

To Post a Book Without an ISBN:

  • Click the link "Post a Book Without an ISBN" at the top of the Post Books page.

 

I would use the post a book without an ISBN

ETA - PBS assigns you a number when you do this, but it is only for this one book. It can't be used again.

Go to the post books link under My Account and then use the Post Without an ISBN option.  PBS assigns the number.

Ana,

On the Post Books tab, there is a link to Post a Book without an ISBN.  Click that link and fill in the book information and the system will assign it a unique number.
