C.C. Hogan (cc-hogan) | 7 comments I wonder if you can help?

My original books were added manually some time ago under my author profile:

However, my newest books (and I imagine the next books too) are appearing automatically under this profile:

What can be done to make sure the books appear under the first profile?

All the best

Krazykiwi | 1767 comments Moved books to your profile.

Sorry, missed your other question.

The bots will import books from various sources, but if the book already exists with the same ISBN or ASIN, it will not re-import them to the wrong profile. The best thing to do is to add them yourself as soon as you have an ASIN or ISBN assigned, even if that is pre-release. It's easy enough to update a placeholder edition with final cover, dates and description.

Or just post here, we usually get books moved pretty quickly.

C.C. Hogan (cc-hogan) | 7 comments Thanks, Krazykiwi!

The bots were faster than me, apparently. I suspect I am going to have the same problem with People of Dirt in the next day or so - I have only just put it up on Amazon. I will add it manually and see what happens.

All the best

Krazykiwi | 1767 comments YW. The bots can be a bit hit or miss, some things show up almost immediately, and others can take a few days or weeks. But like I said, if it happens again, just post and we fix it :)
