Joe Dunn | 2 comments Hello!

When I go to the Joe Dunn page, there are 48 books listed from various Joe Dunns; only two are mine:

http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

The two that are mine are:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18...

What's the best way for me to claim just these two titles?

Thank you so much!

Joe

Ashley E | 416 comments I added an extra space to your author name to differentiate your books from the others. Note that if you ever add more of your books, you will need to put two spaces in your name: Joe^^Dunn, with ^ = space.

Here's your new profile.

It's not actually a new profile; it was created (and claimed) in 2011. Just a few of the editions were in the wrong place.

Banjomike | 5530 comments This is the 'ordinary member' profile that claimed the Joe Dunn profile in Rivka's post.

Joe, try logging in to this one. I expect you have two profiles on the go. Blame Facebook.

The two profiles can be merged by using the Contact Us link on the Help page and asking for them to be. Please include links to both profiles so they know what to merge, and let them know what email address you would like to keep as your login.

Banjomike | 5530 comments It might be worth including a link to this thread so that support have all the info. It will save Joe repeating it all.

My best to you all.

CPAS (cpasegy) | 4 comments Is there any way I can claim the author profile of a family member who passed away?

No, but if you need edits made to their books or author profile please let us know in a new thread. It's best not to revive threads that are several years old.

Shanika Rana | 2 comments Hi,
I wanted to claim the author profile for the two books I have written, which are a part of a trilogy.

You will find a link near the bottom of the author profile page that asks if it's you.

Emily | 13206 comments Please reply in your original thread if you need more assistance. It is very confusing when multiple requests are on a thread that is several years old.
