Hákon Gunnarsson | 309 comments I was adding this anthology, and I made a typo. One of the names is Sojourner McConnel but should be Sojourner McConnell. Could someone fix this for me. With thanks in advance.

Hákon Gunnarsson | 309 comments And if someone could put Shae Hamrick name first among the authors. She is the editor and an author. I seem to have ended up in first because I added the book. With thanks in advance.

Hákon Gunnarsson | 309 comments Okay, I seem to have made a right mess of this. D.B. Martin, should be DB Martin. I'm very sorry for all the trouble.

#3 D.B. Martin is the correct one according Goodreads...

Hákon Gunnarsson | 309 comments Thanks fRee. I had seen that D.B. Martin too, but that is not the right DB. He is the one that can be found here:

Could you change it for me?

done. Here is his profile now https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... D.B.^^Martin (^=space)

GRs requires all initials to be followed by a period. Since there was already an author with the name D.B. Martin we add an extra space between the names to create their own profile. If you manually add any more books with his name, be sure to add that extra space and it will end up on their profile. the extra space is ignored by search engine.

I also combined the kindle and ppbk versions https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

This book https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... is properly combined with https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... ?

Hákon Gunnarsson | 309 comments Thanks Corinne. It has 31 days of october on the cover so I think it probably is, but I wasn't around when the first was done, so I can't be certain. I will remember that extra space if I add more of his books. Thanks again.

Hákon Gunnarsson | 309 comments One more error. Shelly Haskett Harris should actually be Shelly Heskett Harris https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
I'm very sorry for all the trouble. Even though it doesn't look like it, I have added books to the database before without problems, but this time everything seems to have gone wrong. If someone could fix this for me I would be grateful. With thanks in advance.

Please don't sweat it. We are here to help and appreciate your effort to fix up the database.

I did reach out to the editor about that "odd" book if you want to follow that thread and see how/if she responds.
