Ashley West | 28 comments Hello, I have an issue with my book. Its is under another author by the same name. I have included the link below to the book as well as my author profile. Could someone please move it my profile.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

https://www.goodreads.com/photo/autho...

Also one of the covers is incorrect and shows the wrong author name as Marie. This is the correct version that shows it the correct author name, Jamie:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

This version is incorrect, that shows the cover as Marie:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Could this version be removed?


Thanks.

Ashley

GR does not delete books or covers that are no longer available. The cover with Marie has been available, there is a Google cache page from Amazon.es.

Ashley West | 28 comments Thanks for moving the title...could these two titles be just combined? Will that google cache page eventually go away?

Ashley West | 28 comments Or couldn't at least a librarian upload the correct cover? That option seems to be available. Thanks

They are already combined.

You can contact Goodreads Support and ask if they can set this edition https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... as the default edition that will show on your author page.

Even when that will go away, that cover has been available on Amazon and will not be deleted.

Ashley West | 28 comments Arenda,

Could the cover be replaced by the correct cover? Librarians seem to have the ability to upload covers. This issue has confused some readers already. Thanks.

Anthony Howard (blackfox) | 1 comments I recently launched my new novel Devil's Diary: The Coming [
0996639721 (ISBN13: 9780996639729)] , under my name, Anthony R Howard. When I went to add it to my Goodreads author profile the day of launch, another author was receiving all credits for it. I am the sole author, and have all worldwide exclusive rights to the title. I do not know this other author who now has credit for my work. Book is somehow listed at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3.... I'd like this book assigned to my authors profile, and removed from all others.

Fixed author name & Moved to your profile. (it was originally imported by a bot without the middle initial in your name.)
