Robert Allen | 3 comments Hi all. I'm new to Goodreads and trying to get my author page in order. There are multiple Robert G Allen (s) out there and, unfortunately, the Robert G. Allen who writes mensa and chess puzzles (not me, I'm the finance one) is having his books show up on my author page. Can any of you help me remove those books, or show me how?

Thanks a ton,

Bob

Can you check if all remaining books are yours?

Robert Allen | 3 comments Thanks Arenda. I've written the forward to many books where I am listed as the author on goodreads. What's the goodreads policy on this? I imagine the authors of those books attached my name as an author as a way of gaining exposure for their work. Ideally I'd like to "clean up" my author page and only include books I've written or co-written.

So, if possible I'd love to remove the following books

Maximum Influence
The 11th Element
Be That Girl
How to Be a Quick Turn Real Estate MIllionaire
What Keeps leaders up at night
Unlimited Riches
Home Buying By the Experts
Create the Business Breakthru
Losing Your Only
Real Wealth Without Risks
Is Your Wallet Killing You
HeartPaths for Hard Times
The Diamond Healing Method
My Dog Ate My Retirement Plan
Key Questions in Career Counseling
From Bankruptcy to Multi-Millions
MlM business travel tax reductions
Gain the Unfair Advantage

Arenda | 22039 comments Sorry, we can't remove these from your author page.
The role (Foreword or Introduction) is mentioned on the book page.

Robert Allen | 3 comments That's fine. Thanks Arenda.

How do I combine the different versions of my book Nothing Down? Or should I just leave them separate?

You can combine the books on your author page, https://www.goodreads.com/book/combin...
The editions that are now separate on your author page have different subtitles. When the content is the same, or an updated version, they should be combined.
