Bill Thompson | 30 comments I just incorrectly added Callie: The Bayou Hauntings to my author dashboard. Could you please remove that book, and instead add this one:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

For future information, can you tell me how to select an existing title and add it to my author dashboard? That will hopefully keep me from making this same mistake over and over. Thank you!

I've moved the correct book (and deleted the duplicate stray), as well as a bunch of others, over to your author profile. When adding a new book, you are Bill^^Thompson, each ^ indicates a space btwn your first and last name to disambiguate you from other authors with the same name.

As far as adding new books go, here are a couple of links that may be helpful to you-

You may find that if your books are imported by bot, they'll go to the default profile (which only has one space btwn first and last name). If that's the case, feel free to create a new thread asking the books to be moved to your profile. Searching by ISBN/ASIN before adding a new title will tell you immediately whether the new edition/title has been added to Goodreads already by user or by bot and prevent duplicate/strays from being added.

When a book is already on Goodreads, but not on your profile, you can not fix that yourself. You have to ask here in the Librarian Group to have it moved to your profile.

Bill Thompson | 30 comments okay, I was afraid of that. Thank you!
