message 1: by Matt (new) - added it

Matt Cahill (mattcahill) | 11 comments Hello there,

I wanted to add myself as a contributor to an existing Goodreads entry (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...), however I'm wary about using the Add a New Book option on my author profile as I'm afraid of creating an erroneous duplicate of the original entry. Unfortunately I don't see anywhere on the existing entry's page for me to add myself as a contributor. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Matt

Added you as a contributor; asking here is the correct thing to do! Adding a new edition would indeed have created an erroneous duplicate; a librarian can always edit the existing book record to make a requested change if warranted.
