Adding a book to a series when there is a glitch

I just tried to add convergence: a between the worlds novel by Morgan Daimler to the series page. I had just added it to my Books with no problem. But when I added it to the series I got a message saying it couldn’t be found. Any idea?

You are the only person on LT with that book, and you just added it today. It will take a bit of time before it shows up in a site search.

Patience.

It is quite normal for a book to take time to be indexed after it is first entered into LT. Try again tomorrow or the next day.

>1 thesmellofbooks: You can add it to the series from the work page. Click Add/edit under the Series and work relationships module, and follow the onscreen instructions.

Or try adding from the work page. That way I assume the search will locate the (already indexed) series

There's another way to add a work to a series that you can probably use immediately. (Cross-posted with SandraArdnas.)

1. Go to the work's main page.

2. Scroll down or search for the "Series and work relationships" Add/edit link.

3. Search for the series title.

That way adds the series to the work instead of the work to the series, and the results are the same.
