Paula (paulakrapf) | 29 comments I added a book on behalf of an author who is just getting started on Goodreads, she only has a basic profile and I'm helping her become a Goodreads author. I added her book to Goodreads but it's credited to the wrong person (they both have the same name). Here is the book listing:

The correct author is this Wendy Brown:

Is there a way to at least get the wrong Wendy Brown taken off the book while I advise the correct Wendy Brown on how to get her profile up and running? Thank you!

Plethora (bookworm_r) | 359 comments Her author name will have three spaces between first and last name.

Wendy^^^Brown (^ = spaces) to keep her books with her name.

She will need to claim her author profile. There is a link at the bottom of the author profile page:

Margitte | 4 comments There are two Paul Dunnes as authors. Currently all their combined books are listed together under one name. How can it be fixed?

Nucking Futs the Fire Fairy Book-a-holic (firefairyholic) | 348 comments If there are really two Paul Dunnes we can refer to the other paul as Paul^^Dunnes (where ^=space). So there will be two spaces between the first and last name and we can now separate their books
