C.B. Archer | 58 comments Hello. Can you please help?

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

incorrectly has me as:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

When I am:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Can you also please kill that other guy, but like forever somehow? He keeps constantly getting made whenever someone adds one of my books to Goodreads and I keep needing to get him taken care of.

Z-squared | 8580 comments Done. But I can't kill the other profile. It'll be created automatically every time a book is imported into Goodreads with the wrong spelling of your name (i.e., minus the periods). Amazon probably has your name listed as "CB Archer," which Goodreads interprets as being a whole other person. Your options are a) keep posting here to have them taken care of (we don't mind! that's what we're here for!) or b) be proactive about adding books to Goodreads before the bots do it for you.

C.B. Archer | 58 comments Thank you so much Z-squared.

I am wise to the ways now and add my own books the day they are released, this has stopped most of the problems. :)

But if I am in a compilation I can't control it. So it isn't as bad as when I started out!
