The book is already on Goodreads here- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3.... It has not found its way to your author profile because of the author name; the book you're requesting to be moved has "Michael A. Smith" as the author on the cover image, while your author profile reads "Micahel A. Smith."

Is one of them incorrect, or are you known by both names?

You're aware your Goodreads author name reads Micahel? Was this ever a name you went by, or was it just a typo? It could affect how the books appear on your page; the author name in the book record should appear as it is on the cover image.

Okay, thanks You can contact support at this link to get your Goodreads author name corrected- https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta....

As far as policy goes, the name that's on the cover of the book must remain primary. I can add your corrected author name as secondary on those so they'll appear on your author profile.

Your only other option with those is to ask support about those, too; I'm not sure what the options are an author name is obviously misspelled, but as a librarian it's not something that I can change myself.
