Arenda | 20239 comments The Kindle edition was already on a separate profile. I've moved the hardcover edition to that same profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...

If you want to claim that author profile (and the book), you can follow this link: https://www.goodreads.com/author/conf...

For books that are already on GR and need to be moved or otherwise corrected, please use the folder "Book Issues".
"Adding New Books" is for books that are not (yet) on GR.

Alan D.D. (alandd) | 66 comments Hello. I wish everyone is having a Happy Holidays. I wanted to ask for help in this same thing.

My book "Perfecta Maldición" was wrongly added as "Perfecta maldición" and to "Alan D. D" instead of "Alan D.D." and as an "ebook edition" instead of "kindle edition."

Could anyone correct these issues and add the ASIN (B076NX1VL8)?

I tried to do it but I don't have the options available.

Here's the book in question: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Link to Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07...

In case anyone need it, my GR author profile is: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Not because I'm trying to get anyone in trouble but just because I need to take it up wiht the publisher if it's them."

The hardcover was added by the publisher.
(The Kindle edition was added earlier by an Amazon bot; these automated imports can't distinguish different author profiles with the same name).

When adding books manually, the best way to use the correct author profile, is go to that profile, the list of books by that author. At the bottom is a link to add more books. When using that link, the correct number of spaces (between first and last name of the author, to separate author profiles with the same name) will be used.
See link here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/list..., "* Note: these are all the books on Goodreads for this author. To add more books, click here."

Moved the book to your profile by correcting the author: https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...
Also corrected format to Kindle. The ASIN was already added to the book.

Please don't use a thread that is linked to a specific book for other requests. Also generally a new thread will be better noticed.
