Maggie | 1 comments Hello,
I edited the book Celestial Blue Skies to make the author Maggie Perrodin Collins because if it stays as Maggie Collins someone else named Maggie Collins gets my book. I need the book Celestial Blue Skies under my author profile. Please. This is driving me nuts.

Because we have more than one author named Maggie Collins, you are Maggie-2space-Collins. The extra space between your first and last names only shows up on book edit pages and your profile edit page, but it tells the system which books are yours. When adding a book manually, be sure to include the extra space, and the book will go where it belongs. If you forget (or a book record is imported), post a new thread in this group and any librarian can fix it for you.
