Morton (mortified) | 12 comments Matthew Edwards
some of the books attributed to this writer are written by my friend of the same name.
https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/6...

my friend's books are
Tales from the upper room 2006 2007 2008 2009 2011
Something in the Blood 2015
I don't know who the other author(s) are.
He has a new book (solo title) coming out soon and i want to help him get his page sorted before that.

Bea Done. Your friend's page is here.

However, the books are caught in a cache and have not all shown up yet.

message 6: by Matthew (new)

Matthew Edwards | 3 comments Hello. I am trying to claim my author profile as suggested by Ben Morton however I am receiving this error message:
"Sorry, you are already in the author program as Matthew Edwards and only one author profile may be claimed at a time. For more information click here."
What have I done?


message 7: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 22809 comments Matthew you need to email support as volunteer librarians cannot do anything for claimed profiles. (It may be the wrong one but the claimed one is still in the mix).

support @ goodreads (dot) com

Alex | 2739 comments re #10/14 Moved to the default (which requires disambiguation). No need to contact support for that.

Matthew, please be aware, for future reference, that yours is the 3-space profile, meaning there are 3 spaces between your first and last name (i.e. Matthew^^^Edwards).

These spaces need to be added for a book to be properly placed on your profile.
