Elizabeth Darcy (nciacchella) | 51 comments Could someone please merge all three of these profiles under the name Nicole Ciacchella? Elizabeth Darcy and Anne Wentworth are pen names I'm no longer using, and I've since edited the books to reflect that I'm the author of all of them.

Nicole Ciacchella
Elizabeth Darcy
Anne Wentworth

Goodreads does not merge distinct pen-names. And as far as books first published under one name, and then another, please see our policy here: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4...
In some cases, a book may be originally published under a pen name, but then later reissued under the author's original name. When this happens, the author listed for any and all editions should be the author name the book was originally published under - so the reissued edition would need its primary author name changed to the originally published pen name, with the additional name added as secondary for all editions with it on the cover. Doing this will allow the various editions to be combined.
