Audrey Adair | 6 comments Hi there,

There is another author with the same name as me, so I followed the Goodreads policies and used two spaces between my first and last name. However, I am finding that readers are creating listings of my books under the first author's name. The first Audrey Adair is a music composer; now my books, which are Scottish and Time Travel Romance, are also listed under her name. Is it possible to combine these editions under my author profile? And how do I prevent this from happening in the future?

Thank you!

The editions you added had no ISBN or ASIN, next time if you add a book also add the ASIN or ISBN so there will be no automatic import and no duplicates.
