Goodreads is Annoying Me

So seven years ago, Audible got the rights to publish Lavender’s Blue in audio, which of course never happened because we didn’t have a finished book until last month. But they still put a post on Goodreads and five people rated it. In spite of the fact that it didn’t exist. And since we’re still not sure about audio, it’s not going to exist even after the ebook and paper go live. So I asked Goodreads to take down the mistake. And they told me they don’t take down published books, that prepubs are good things. So I wrote back and said, “This is a MISTAKE not a prepub.” Then I went to the listing and changed the title of the book to Lavender’s Blue THIS BOOK DOES NOT EXIST IN AUDIO and left this comment:

Lavender's Blue THIS BOOK DOES NOT EXIST IN AUDIOLavender’s Blue THIS BOOK DOES NOT EXIST IN AUDIO by Jennifer Crusie

I don’t know what people thought they were reviewing, this book was never published seven years ago. It’s coming out for the first time at the end of July, but not in audio, but Goodreads won’t delete this. Very annoying. Sorry for the confusion. ARGH. Jenny Crusie

Of all the frustrating things we’ve been going through trying to self-publish this book, this is the most annoying. But I’m calm now. Really I’m fine.

Argh.
