Michelle Babb | 19 comments Please remove this book from my "author" profile:
Anti-Inflammatory Eating for a Happy, Healthy Brain
ISBN = 1632170566 (ISBN13: 9781632170569)
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I believe it belongs to the other Michelle Babb, whose profile is here:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
,,,since I see she has another title on Anti-Inflammatory eating.

While on the subject, it would be great if you could label my profile as a NARRATOR, & if that would somehow alert any librarians who are attempting to list me as the AUTHOR for anything. I have no plans to write a book, but I was advised that you don't have a profile-category for narrators, & that I should just call myself an author. So now I feel dishonest, and kinda devalued, & like I need to go find a support group...


...OK, so maybe you can't fix all my issues, but you could move that book off my profile, & I'll move on :)

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #3 - Done.

We cannot change anything with a GR Author profile, but I do not believe there is a way to change something like that.

You can add a description to your profile, explaining that you narrate audiobooks.

Also, since you have the 'default' author profile, any books by an author with the same name that are imported by Goodreads, end up on your profile and have to be manually moved by a librarian. A note on your profile saying you are a narrator isn't going to prevent that.

There is no way to do this. And the majority of books that accidentally end up on the wrong author profile are added by automated imports, so it wouldn't be likely to help anyway.

But you can always post in this group asking for any misplaced books to be moved.
