It was created before the first book was added to my author profile. Now I can't have two books on two different profile. So I need to add it on Alisonswan profile

We go by the cover, not the copyright page.

I uploaded the new cover where the name is Alisonswan and every book I publish will go by only this name from now. I think it'll take a few days to show up on the sites. So then, can u fix this problem?

lethe | 13731 comments Alison, I added the Kindle edition with info from Amazon:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Since Amazon mentions BookRix as the publisher, I took the cover for the ebook from there:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I added Alisonswan as a secondary author to both editions. I have added the primary author as Alison^^Swan (^ = space) and merged Alison Rosaline Swan into that profile.

There already is an Alison^Swan. If the books on that profile are also yours, I can merge both profiles: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

thank u, and the other Alison^Swan isn't me so there's no need to merge both profiles.
