Kristin Campbell (kristinrcampbell) | 6 comments Author M.W. Smith (his page: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4...)
is trying to link his book, The Gate: Journey to the New World, to his page. However, there is another author by the same name and M.W. Smith's book is now linked to that author. Need help trying to fix this, please. Also, there are two of these books showing up and they need to be combined now.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Created a new profile for M.W. Smith who published The Gate. This profile can be claimed by the author by following this link.

The author is listed in GR as M.W.^^^Smith where ^ denotes a space. Authors with similar names are disambiguated by adding spaces and this is visible only in edit pages. I attached the paperback version to the Kindle edition.
