Adrian Price | 5 comments There is another author on this site with the same name as me, but we are not the same person. His works are showing up on my author profile as mine and I would like them removed from my author profile. They are as follows:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

If there is any way that you can help, or steer me in the right direction as to what I need to do to change this, I would greatly appreciate it. :)

Regards,

Adrian Price

Appears that I'm the first one here!

As a note, C&Ping links doesn't actually work - you have to copy the whole link out again. But I've copied them from the other thread for you:

Susie (dragonsusie) | 2472 comments What I've done is I've disambiguated the other author, which basically means I've put an extra space between their first and last names. All the books that aren't yours now appear here.

Because you have the default Adrian Price profile, every time a book gets added by another Adrian Price you will have to request here for it to be moved. The alternative is just as complicated - it is possible to ask customer services to change your profile to being the one with two spaces instead, but you'll then have the reverse problem, as in every time a book of yours gets added you'll need to ask for it to be moved to your profile!

This isn't a new problem for us, so if you ever spot a book that isn't yours that you would like to be moved, just request it here.
