The extra space between your first and last names only shows up on book edit pages and your profile edit page, but it tells the system which books are yours.

When adding a book manually, be sure to include the extra space, and the book will go where it belongs. If you forget, post a new thread in this group and any librarian can fix it for you.

John Douglas | 3 comments Hello, I have written the book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

However I cannot register myself as the author as there is already a John Douglas profile, if it possible to edit the author name to John Douglas JD so that I can confirm the book is mine and set up an author profile? Here is the link to the amazon site: http://www.amazon.com/Change-Your-Min...

Kind Regards,

Hallo, John. Edit of your name isn't necessary. You're in GR's database as John^^^^^^^^^^Douglas (10 spaces—popular name ^.^).

If by 'register', you mean that you'd like to claim your author profile (already set up when book added to GR's database) and become a GR author, then simply click the below link and follow the instructions. When GR processes your application, it will merge your existing regular profile w/ the author one.
