Jaylee (thewritingj) | 5 comments One of the authors in this anthology, C.M. Lloyd... her page is here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

When I added her, it linked to another author. I know the trick about adding a space before the author's name, and tried that... but it still did not link to her? I'm unsure how to make it go directly to her. Can someone help and look at it please? :)

(It took a bit of sleuthing to determine which book you were referring to. . . . Next time please add a book page link. :-) )

Jaylee (thewritingj) | 5 comments Oh goodness, lol. Where is my brain. Thank you so much for putting up with me... haha! :)

Would you mind telling me how you wrote that author's name to get it to link properly? She would like to know for future books.

To associate with the correct author (in this case), the name required two spaces between the initials and the surname: “C.M.^^Lloyd”.

[Note that author disambiguation needs to be assessed on a case-by-case basis and the correct number of spaces to use—if at all—is not always apparent simply by viewing names.]
