David Dalton | 5 comments I have a new book out with the title "Why Straight Guys Love Their Gay Guys: Reviving the Roots of Male Sexuality." The new book is now on Goodreads. There are several authors whose name is the same as mine, so I believe you need to add it to my list manually. Many thanks...

David Dalton | 5 comments Thank you! How in the world would my name get three spaces??

Because there are other David Dalton's on GRs. That is how we disambiguate authors. The search engine ignores the extra space so your readers will find you.

If you manually enter a book, add the extra spaces and it will be on your profile.
Also, you can try to beat the bots from putting your books on the default one space profile by entering it yourself as soon as you know isbn/asin.
