I should warn everyone that I retconned the shuttlecraft Copernicus, which we didn't see until the Enterprise-A, back onto the refit Enterprise. Because reasons. Discuss. I will take lashings with a carp as needed.
On a scale of "irreconcilable" to "not actually a problem", I'm pretty sure that "shuttlecraft names" are towards the right-hand end of that scale.

But I took the whole shuttlecraft, not just its name! None of the odd little shuttles glimpsed in Star Trek: The Motion Picture served my needs, so I just decided to give the Enterprise a proper big shuttle. I like to think it was sitting in some corner of the shuttlebay already, we just didn't see it in STTMP.

Actually TMP never really gave us a good look at the full-sized shuttlecraft glimpsed in the hangar-bay matte painting. But in Mere Anarchy: The Darkness Drops Again, I gave them their day in the sun and showcased their modular design as shown in this Andrew Probert sketch.

However, in Ex Machina, I also featured the torpedo-shaped shuttle Matt Jefferies designed for Phase II as an extra-maneuverable atmospheric shuttle. So it's plausible the ship could've had other shuttle classes aboard.

I shall call this the Bennett Loophole and refer anyone disappointed in my choice of shuttlecraft to this post.

Of course you did and that second link doesn't work.

Here's the one: http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Zhang_Sui

I remember that sketch from the Reeves-Stevens Phase II book.

According to Memory Beta, there's a shuttlecraft Copernicus of unspecified type assigned to the Enterprise in the 2270s. It could easily be the same one as in the novel, and/or the E-A one (with a new registry).

Does this eNovella have a review thread yet or should we just use this one?
