Michael Mejia (michaelmejia) | 4 comments Hello! I'm a Goodreads author and I need to add this book to my page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Also, is there a way to separate myself on Goodreads from the other Michael Mejia(s)? I can add a middle initial, if necessary, though my name is listed without on my books.

Not sure what you mean by separate, you already are. If you mean books being imported then you would have to modify your name with all the places they would imported from to have the middle initial, along with modifying your profile.

Biggest issue is that a normal person adding a book would still probably put it in the default single space profile if they did not create it right, because books are usually added with the Author name as it shows on the cover, so you would then have to move it anyway.

One way around having to move books to your profile is to create it on your profile with the ASIN/ISBN before it would get imported, by doing that it would not import the books, since the ASIN/ISBN already exist in the system.

Got it. I think it seemed that I wasn't differentiated because the book hadn't been moved yet, so the author name referred to all Michael Mejias. I see how it works now. Thanks! M.

Cool. I'm a contributor in My Mother, etc., Brothers & Beasts, and Forms at War. I'm also a contributor to this title: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Thanks! M.
