C.R. Robertson | 23 comments Hi,
I have tried to add my third book to my list of works, but can't work out how. I tried to manually add it, but now have a random title of Elements now on my dashboard.
My books listed are:
Elements of Flames - ASIN: B01HVIO9NC
Elements of Dragons -ASIN: B01LE3YAOS
Book I need added:
Elements of Fae - ASIN: B01N4FVJSG
Book I need deleted:

Can anyone help?

CR Robertson

Always check using the ASIN or ISBN rather than the name.

Fixing it now.

Kelly Marie (kmarie83) | 12 comments Hi,

Can I have this book added to my profile please. It's under the wrong author with the same name.

Is there something that I can do from stopping my future works going under this author's profile. Every time I publish a new book that's where it goes.
Many thanks,

Because the other profile is the default (single-space in the name) profile, any automatic imports from amazon or wherever go to it. Your profile uses 2 spaces between your first and last names to differentiate from the other author and separate your books. If you add your book before the auto import does, with its ISBN/ASIN, and put the 2 spaces in the author name, it will go directly to your profile.

It's an easy fix for a librarian to move the book, but I can understand the annoyance of having to watch for it on another profile. :-)
