PSA: How to Request Book Edits

Reblogged from: Bookstooge's Reviews On the Road

This post/tutorial with screenshots will hopefully show you how to requests edits for your books.


It is long, so please have patience.




How To Request an Edit


1) On the book page that you want to edit, click on the "edit" symbol




2) This will bring up the main Edit Page. It is a full length page and will require some scrolling, hence why I have had to include 3 pix to show it all.




3) Now we will begin to fill in data, from the bottom up.


      A) Source link. This tells where you are getting your data from. You MUST have

           this  info or the librarians may reject your request.

           Verification is important.


      B) Acceptable source links are as follows:

           BookLikes users can use the following sources for book and

           author information:
           - BookLikes affiliate partners (visible at Settings/Affiliate Programs),  

                -which includes:

                     - Amazon

                     - Book Depository

                     - Powell's Book
           - official websites of publishers
           - public domain information which provide open access to the information
           - library information
           - official author page

           - personal archives 






        C) Genre

             - This is already filled in for this book, so no need to add any.

             - If it was blank, you would click on the pull down menu and select the ones

                that apply


        D) Language

             - For those of you reading this, except for a very few, it should be English

                and the default should be English.








      E) Description.

            -This can be copied from any of the acceptable book

              sources listed above.  I will be using the description

              from Amazon to replace the incomplete description

              already there.


      F) Number of pages.

           -Edit from 0 to the correct number.

           -For AUDIO books, fill in this number with how many minutes

             it is, NOT hours. So a 7hr book would be 420minutes.

             You would enter 420.


      G) Format.

            -Usually already correct unless blank or some really weird thing.

            - Don't change this if the isbn matches the format on your

               source link. Ie, don't turn a hardcover into an ebook.


      H) Date Published.

           - Should be in YYYY-MM-DD format.

           - That is, 4 digit year, 2 digit month, 2 digit day.

           - ie, 2004-03-25 is March 25th, 2004

           - You don't have to fill in the whole date if unknown. so 2004

              would be fine for the above example, as would 2004-03.


      K) Publisher.

            - I recommend leaving this alone UNLESS you know what

              you are doing.



      L) ISBN 10/13 and ASIN   - VERY IMPORTANT -

           - a book should have either an ISBN 10/13 number

              OR an ASIN. It should not have both.

           - If it has both, as the book in my example shows, delete the

              ASIN, as the ISBN came first.

            - The only exception is a Kindle/Ebook bundle.

               Booklikes brings them into the database bundled.

               Don't ask me why.

           - do NOT change an already established ISBN or ASIN.

               Instead, search the database using the ISBN/ASIN you have

               and it should show up. If it doesn't, request to add a new book.






       M) Series and Series Position

            - Start typing in the series name. If it already exists,

              it will pop up. Some series have a number after them,

              if that is the only one available, type in the full series

              without the number and add as a new series

            - series position is pretty obvious.


       N) Author

           - Under the author dropdown are the following options:

             - Author

             - Illustrator

             - Editor

             - Translator

             - Narrator

             - Contributor

           - Use these as necessary.


        O) Title

            - clean this up as necessary.

            - Should not include series info, date, publisher info, etc.


         P) Cover

             - It should match the isbn/asin

                Do not change the cover to match the one you "like".

                Only upload a higher quality cover, not a different one.

            - Save the higher quality cover image to your computer,

               then upload using the "Select File" button.







       Q) Finally, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and hit

            the big green "Submit" button.

            - Your edits are now in the queue and a librarian will eventually

               get to them.







4) Remember, a SOURCE LINK is your friend and necessary. Without it,

    your edits cannot be verified and will most likely be rejected.

New from Decadent Publishing




by Heather Long


Maxwell Sauvage was born into a life of privilege…and boredom. As a “security consultant” to the powerful, he enjoys pitting his wits against the most intricate of security systems for business and pleasure.

Anya Swift is a woman with high-class tastes and a high-octane need for adventure. As an operative for International Art and Antiquities Recovery she stays just on the “right” side of the law, while satisfying her desire for the finer things and her thirst for adventure.

When a high tech camera catches Anya taking The Fortunate Buddha from the French Ambassador’s vault, Max is eager to help the provocative thief for his own reasons, not the least of which being that he set the camera.  But after one stunning night of passion, Anya disappears.  Now Max must find Anya before the Ambassador’s men and claim the thief for his own, but they are running against a clock, danger and deception.

by Landra Graf


Sigmund Bermudez has spent the last year out of the BDSM scene, mourning the death of his father and rebuilding the family business. When he loses a bet to his bodyguard that Madame Eve won’t locate a woman who’s down with his type of kink, he finds himself committed to a date he’s not sure he’ll enjoy. 

Lauren Elser has heard about kinky escapades from one of her more challenging patients, and never taken in part in one. When offered a chance to explore this undiscovered side of herself courtesy of 1Night Stand, she jumps at it. 

Neither of them is prepared for the emotional rollercoaster that comes with their date, and soon shibari bondage play turns into so much more. The only problem, is Sig’s not ready to open up and Lauren doesn’t want to be sued again. But if they work past the issues, there’s a world of wonder in store.
