Simon Lewis (simonmlewis) | 7 comments My book, Jewtown, ISBN 9781907682452, is been accredited to an author with the same name as me. As it's my first book, I am not on the Goodreads Author Program. Any chance the book could be linked to me?

Abcdarian | 22266 comments Moved the book to a new author profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... If you would like to claim this profile, fill in this form: https://www.goodreads.com/author/conf... When it goes through it will merge with your current reader profile.

Simon Lewis (simonmlewis) | 7 comments Is my author page separate from my normal account or are the two merged?

Your claim will be processed by GR Support (not by librarians), which can take up to a few business days.

Simon Lewis (simonmlewis) | 7 comments Hi again

My book still seems to be with the wrong author. Any chance you could move it to my profile? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Thanks

Simon

Arenda | 22053 comments Moved the book to your profile and merged (= deleted) the empty duplicate.
Please don't remove the extra spaces in the author name, Those are required to keep the book on your profile.
