vicki_girl | 196 comments I have tried several times recently to add a second author to a book. After I hit save, the new author name disappeared.

This happened both in Firefox 15.0.1 and IE 7.

Is the secondary author similar to the primary author -- differing by only a few characters?

vicki_girl | 196 comments One was a middle initial "Dean Jensen" vs. "Dean N. Jensen". The other was "M.L. Tyndall" vs. "MaryLu Tyndall".

Is this intentional? I was adding the similar names because the authors publish under both.

Yup. You can see the workaround another librarian already used on the Tyndall book.
