Emy (emypt) | 5029 comments Heather, you are Heather^^Parsons, where ^ is a space. Have moved the other book to your profile now.

Heather Parsons (goodreadscom_heatherparsons) | 6 comments thanks.
I have 2 more books to list. what is the easiest way to do so? many thanks


message 6: by Emy (new)

Emy (emypt) | 5029 comments Just make sure to add both spaces between your first and last names, this ensures that the books are placed on your author page. The spaces are important for distinguishing different authors with the same names, but don't affect searching, etc.

While I have your attention, could you confirm that none of the other books here are yours: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Is this the book you're talking about? In which case the cover that appears on the book, that I see, is like you described, plus the same as the one on Amazon.


message 14: by Heather (new)

Heather Parsons (goodreadscom_heatherparsons) | 6 comments yes but it originally appeared as a plain brown one.
I re uploaded it as a jpeg image. i think the tif one was too large. sorry

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #19 - Done.

For future reference, if you want the book you create (not auto-imported) to automatically show up on your profile all you have to do is set the author name to "Jennifer^^^^^Smith" where ^=space.

message 33: by E.M. (new)

E.M. Swift-Hook | 35 comments I tried to claim a book in which I am a contributing author and instead managed to add a 'ghost' book that does not even exist. I would be very grateful if that ghost book could be removed from my author profile and I could have "Tales of Wonder" added instead. Thank you so much.
