Cam (camthereader) | 605 comments Hi, need help separating some books listed under an author. I don't know how to separate them since the author only goes by one name (no surname).

According to her blog, the books she's written, which are listed on GR, are
Carlie Her Protector

the rest aren't hers. Thanks.

Cam (camthereader) | 605 comments Okay thanks. I did edit the author profile. Should I keep it blank since all those books are listed under that name?

The usual procedure would be something like this:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

The blurb should include something about EACH author who uses that name not made to look like the profile of ONE person. Otherwise someone wanting to add a new book book by a different "Maria" is going to think that this is not the correct profile when in fact it is.

Cam (camthereader) | 605 comments Got it, thanks Banjomike. I'll edit the author profile for that name.

Banjomike | 5530 comments I've had a go at the "Marie" profile. All but one of the books was listed with an abbreviated author so I've fixed the author names, added covers, and tweaked the profile blurb. It nearly isn't a multi-author listing any more. Anyway, the principle is there. I've also revised the profile in my last post.

Cam (camthereader) | 605 comments Looks much better now with the revised Marie profile (and neater!) you did. Thanks!
