Leslie Welch (leslie_welch) | 6 comments Hi!

I just noticed that my book recently moved to another Leslie Welch's author profile (I think my publisher released a new edition).

The Goodbyes is my only novel. Is there a way to move it back to my page (and unlink it from the other author's novels)?

Here's my author profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

This is my book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind Regards,

Leslie Welch

Leslie Welch (leslie_welch) | 6 comments Hello! For some reason my book was linked to the other Leslie Welch again who writes in a VERY different genre than I do. Can we separate my book from his?

I changed my author name to Leslie J. Welch to hopefully avoid this confusion again.

Leslie Welch (leslie_welch) | 6 comments Hi There,

Any news about separating my book (29553193-the-goodbyes) from the other Leslie Welch's books? The only book that should show up under my author profile is The Goodbyes.

I changed my name to Leslie J. Welch (15096265.Leslie_J_Welch).

Leslie Welch (leslie_welch) | 6 comments Hi Scott,

Thanks for your response!

I would usually agree, but this is a last resort since this is the second time his books moved back under my profile after changing my name to the Leslie^^Welch format. Is there a way to see why this keeps happening?

I asked my publisher to add my middle initial when they release the next edition that will come out for the movie. I'm not sure what else to do...He's a self-published Christian author. It's just a very different audience.

Best,
Leslie

Adding a middle initial for disambiguation is perfectly fine. As in mentioned in the Librarian Manual.

Can anyone help me? Thanks!
