Teresa | 12 comments The author of Invasion at Miratev is a different Brian Nicholson.
Book link:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Brian Nicholson that this book is incorrectly listed under: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

So you want this book https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... , removed from this profile https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... ? It's odd because it's set up as a series on the GR/claimed author profile and there is nothing on the unclaimed profile.

I combined them all onto the GR author profile. The series was set up by the publisher. If you can help prove they are on the wrong profile please do.

Found my own proof I think http://greygeckopress.com/author/bria... pictures are clearly different. And looks like it was a kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...

Moved the books to the other profile as the OP requested.

Links to individual users' profiles are not allowed in this group. Please edit out the one above, or I will be forced to delete the post which contains it.

Series automatically show up on the author profile that books 1 & 2 have as first author. If the books are on the wrong profile, so will the series be.

Yesterday after editing a comment, I also received a notification that there was a new comment, which there wasn't. So apparently the system now notifies you after editing your comment (not very useful, but that's a post for the Feedback Group).

So yes, the comment was addressed at you to remove the user link, and no, nobody said anything mean about you :)

lol. thx.


message 8: by Teresa (new)

Teresa | 12 comments Nah, it could have been me she was referring to--I had a comment to help clarify the differences in the two Brian Nicholsons. I deleted it. Sorry to confuse you two. I figured offering evidence for the person trying to fix an error would help save them some time with the book being written by a new author and that it would fit with "The only exception is when linking to an author's profile when requesting edits/merges." If it is the link in OP then she can delete this thread. I'm probably going to delete my account soon anyway if support can't help me with a technical issue.

Teresa it was me. Sounds like you only did things to get the data correct. To that you have to point to profiles. But, I was definitely linking a profile to prove a point that wasn't needed to correct a profile.

Hope your issue gets resolved. Good luck.

Erin Johnson (erinjohnsonwrites) | 8 comments Hi! I have a few books under my author page that aren't mine. If you could please remove, that'd be great! Thanks!

Also, this book seems to be a duplicate somehow and I'd like it deleted please: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Thanks again!

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #10 - Done. That one is not a duplicate. One was kindle the other paperback. I fixed the ISBN on the paperback, and combined with the kindle.

Erin Johnson (erinjohnsonwrites) | 8 comments Awesome, thanks so much! Also, it looks like I missed one book that needs to be removed from my profile:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Thanks again for your help!
