https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Does not belong to author: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

How to set up a different author page?

Emy (emypt) | 5020 comments The usual way is to add an extra space between surname and forename. I've done this one so you can have a look and see what I did :)

I see. Thanks!
A new author page is setup, but the book still appears in the other author's page: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
Anything else needs to be done?

Emy (emypt) | 5020 comments Nothing else - the author front pages are always heavily cached, so it shows there even though it's now not there really. If you want to reassure yourself, click on "YAN GE'S BOOKS", and it'll show the exact list of that author's books including any changes you have just made.
