L.J.M. Owen (LJM_Owen) | 5 comments Hi

Could a librarian please help me sort out a duplicate record and linking a record to my profile as an author?

I'm the author of Olmec Obituary. 1st/Kickstarter edition has 4 ISBNs:

978-0-9942342-0-9 - book
978-0-9942342-1-6 - PDF
978-0-9942342-2-3 - epub
978-0-9942342-3-0 - mobi

Before I joined Goodreads a reader added a record for the novel. The info isn't 100% correct, the paperback ISBN was used for an ebook. Can someone help to link it to my account as the author?

Here's the record:

My Facebook is Ljm Owen
My Twitter is @Bleuddyn_Coll
My email address is ljmowen@gmail.com

I tried to create a record for the book ISBN, not realising the other record had used it. Here's the link to the second record. Could you please help me link it to my account properly as author, and to the other record, so I can clean it up?

Than you so much in advance!

Vicky (librovert) | 2459 comments I've added records for the other ISBN numbers and cleaned up the duplicate.

You will need to claim your profile, we can not help you with that. Go to your author page (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...), at the bottom of the page you'll see the following line: Is this you? Let us know. If not, help out and invite L.J.M. to Goodreads. Click on "let us know" and fill out the application form.

L.J.M. Owen (LJM_Owen) | 5 comments Hi Vicky. Out of curiosity do you know how long it normally takes to be approved as an author? I applied seven days ago and haven't been contacted yet. Is there a standard waiting time? Thank you,L.J.

Please start a new thread next time, as this one is linked to a specific book.
