Daniel Older (danieljoseolder) | 3 comments I have an author profile, Daniel José Older (with an accent on the e in Jose) and one that publishers have been using to post my work, Daniel Jose Older, no accent on the e in Jose. Can these be combined?

Thank you for your time and help!

Ine | 263 comments Daniel, I've had a look, and if books are added by publishers by using Daniel^^José^Older (meaning there are two spaces between Daniel and José), they will automatically end up under the correct author profile. It doesn't have anything to do with the accent on the e, since Goodreads has a way of correcting for that.

If you want to claim Daniel^José^Older, you'll have to contact Support.

Not really. That's precisely what the thread Deon linked is for.

Ine | 263 comments Sorry to ask, but just so I get this straight and can avoid giving out wrong information in future: if Daniel^José^Older and Daniel^^José^Older are merged (as per the author merge thread), will future books for Daniel^José^Older automatically get added to his profile?

The remaining profile has single spaces.
