Sharon Selby Currently, my book is on a different Sharon Selby's page. I'm wondering how to move it to mine. Thank you!

Moved you to the 2 space profile which you can claim

Author FAQ

Please note: Because we have more than one author named Sharon Selby, you are Sharon-2space-Selby. The extra space between your first and last names only shows up on book edit pages and your profile edit page, but it tells the system which books are yours. When adding a book manually, be sure to include the extra space, and the book will go where it belongs. If you forget (or a book record is imported), post a new thread in this group and any librarian can fix it for you.


Can you please tell us the correct ISBN for the book?
Currently it's wrong because someone put the ISBN13 into the ISBN10 field (yes, that's called differently on purpose as one has 3 digits more than the other and therefore the ISBN10 field truncates everything to 10 digits).

Paul (paulgoetze) | 14 comments I changed the author for Osman Welela’s books now, so that they at least appear under the right profile.

As a librarian I can’t merge claimed profiles, so we need another person to help out here. Unfortunately the thread for posting such issues seems to be closed for new comments.

Could anyone please help here?


Edit:
Since the O.W. author does not have any books anymore after chaning the author now, it should be taken care off by the cleanup scripts.

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6185 comments #5 there is nothing closed for new comments https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... but profiles with no followers/quotes don't belong in there
(your pt 17 thread is quite outdated - the newest one is stickied everytime)

Thank you! I've submitted my application to the Goodreads Author program. My ISBN is 978-1-7751926-0-2
