I have a book I want to post & it is wishlisted.  The problem being the title of the book is wrong.  Here is the ISBN - 978-0-06-137605-4.  The book is Deception by Selena Montgomery.  In the PBS system it is titled Betrayal.  I have checked all over and she does not have a title with that name coming out.  What should I do.  HELP!

According to Amazon, it has not yet been released.  Is it possible there has been a title change since the last time the PBS database updated itself?  Is what you have an ARC?

Deception is on pre-order on Amazon, so my guess is that Betrayal was a working title.

I submitted an "Edit Book" request. It's waiting moderator approval.

Check back in a few hours? Maybe a few days? The title should be changed to reflect the current title.

Thanks so much Melissa.  And no, it is the actual book.  Thanks for all the help, I never saw that happen before.

Books often change names before publishing.  Sort of a struggle between the author and the marketing.  And if another book is coming with the same title.
