Book Issues > Error when trying to delete a 'wrong' author

Steve Ward (stevewardthewriter) | 4 comments Hi,

One of the authors of this book is Steve Ward.

However, in the process of adding authors, a 'wrong' author with the same name has been added that I'm trying to delete (the top listed Steve Ward, with 5 spaces, is correct, the bottom listed Steve Ward is a different author unconnected to the book).

However, when I try to delete the incorrect (bottom-listed) Steve Ward I keep getting an ERROR message. I've seen the issue in another thread with the suggestion to save and re-edit, with the idea being that it typically works on the second try... but I've not had any luck after a *lot* of retries.

Any advice appreciated

Indeed. There are several data items author can add but not remove; secondary authors are one of these.


Steve Ward (stevewardthewriter) | 4 comments Hi, the same issue has arisen with https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I am the Steve Ward (5 spaces) that is a contributor in it, the one listed by the editor who made the entry is incorrect. I'd be grateful if someone could correct for me please.

However it gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book/author is used for other books, in the future please start a new topic.
