Rebecca Weller | 6 comments My name is Rebecca Weller,
I am the author of Hleo and Veridan, but I didn't write The Happier Hour, it keeps getting added to my author profile page. This is the third time I will have had it deleted, if you could please delete it that would be great,
Rebecca Weller

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6188 comments moved it to the correct Rebecca and merged it into the other editions (as it had no further information and there are already PB, kindle and ebook edition)

That book appeared on your profile because you have the default one so every book added with "Rebecca^Weller" as author (^=space) will go to your profile automatically.
GR distinguishes between authors with the same name with a different amount of spaces between first and last name - the "happier hour" is written by the 2 space Rebecca but Bots do use only one space and in this case it was added by a user who did the same.

But that's a really easy fix for librarians to move it to another profile.
