Helen Mason | 17 comments Hi,

My name is Helen Mason. This year, I wrote 5 books for Crabtree Publishing. Three of the books have been mounted on my profile. Two of the books have been mounted under the name of Paula Smith. I find that odd since I wrote them. I have the two books sitting in front of me. Paula Smith's name is neither on the title page nor the copyright page. My name is on both as the author. I am also listed as the author in the CIP data. The books are:
Length Word Problems (ISBN 978-0-7787-1079-0) and Word Problems: Mass and Volume (978-0-7787-1081-3).

How can I get this information fixed?

Thanks for your help.

and many others. Checking now.

Banjomike | 5530 comments The publishers site has both ISBNs by Paula Smith
http://www.crabtreebooks.com/Store/it...
http://www.crabtreebooks.com/Store/it...

and the second title (different ISBN)
http://www.crabtreebooks.com/Store/it...

That is probably where our importers got the duff info. I think you need to sort them out.

Helen Mason | 17 comments alibris has both names:
http://www.alibris.com/search/books/i...

Homeshop has my incomplete name and the bio of Paula Smith
http://www.homeshop18.com/word-proble...

How do I correct this? Do I need to go directly to Crabtree?

Your publisher is likely the best place to start, simply because they should have methods in place to send out data corrections to various sites.

Helen Mason | 17 comments Okay, I have sent a note to Crabtree. If I don't hear from them in a couple of days, I'll try again. Meanwhile, to fix it on this site, can I scan and send a copy of the title and copyright pages to someone?

Thanks for your help.

WorldCat has the correct data, and that's sufficient backup. Books fixed.

Helen Mason | 17 comments Wonderful! Thank you. I'll add them to my profile now.

You really are great! Thanks again.

Putting in the correct author name automagically moves them to the right profile. :)
