No publisher option in bookshelf reporting

So, I was editing the information for a book I was adding to the bookshelves when I noticed that while the ebook option didn't have a publisher on it anywhere, the paperback was published through the CreateSpace program. I wanted to correct that but I couldn't find a way to change it via the reporting form.

Did you enter a publisher before?
If you could link to the book, I can change it for you. :tiphat:

Thanks Gravy!

I think it's technically correct (CreateSpace being an indie publisher). :eusa-think:
