Jennifer (carpediem5366) | 10 comments All the books Julie Morgan (Goodreads Author) adds to here goes under the other Julie Morgan account.

How can we prevent this?

Currently her book Sniper https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Needs to be moved to this account please. https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Arenda | 20814 comments Moved the book to the correct author profile.

When there is more than one author with the same name, GR adds an extra space between first and last name.
For books to end up on the GR author Julie Morgan, there have to be two spaces between first and last name.

When adding new books, an easy solution is go the the book list of the author, https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...
At the bottom of that page is a link "to add more book, click here" which automatically uses the correct number of spaces in the author profile.

Librarians can always move books when they are not on the correct author profile.
