David Pollak (mindfulnessmaze) | 5 comments Hi there,

I have an Author page.
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

I have a Book page.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Question: How do I link the Author page and the Book page?

Sandra | 26912 comments David, not sure what you're asking. That book is on your profile already.

David Pollak (mindfulnessmaze) | 5 comments ok thanks. I was aware the book is on my profile but didn't realise that they were also linked - the book 'and' the 'profile'. Thanks Sandra

David Pollak (mindfulnessmaze) | 5 comments Funny thing...
A Screenshot from a moment ago shows that when I wanted to add a Quote and typed my name in and it then went a Cream colour - seven books were listed for my name and my book was not listed. Therefore, my author name at least appears to not be connected with my book unless of course it is 'NOT' possible to add my name such as that associated with my profile and connect it with my book which does not show in the list of books for David Pollak.

David Pollak (mindfulnessmaze) | 5 comments "QUOTES BY DAVID POLLAK
No quotes have been added to this profile yet. Add one now." And yet I have added two quotes already so therefore I am thinking that one thing is not working. Thanks

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1770 comments Because you have the two space profile, when adding a quote you will need to type your name with two spaces or you won't be given your list of books to choose from.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments David, I edited both your quotes so that they are attributed to you. You can check them here - https://www.goodreads.com/author/quot...

In future when you enter quotes, make sure you mention author name as David^^Pollak (where ^ = space) so that the quotes are attributed to you

David Pollak (mindfulnessmaze) | 5 comments Ah... thanks Michael that's wonderful of you and it was lovely of Sandra to try to help also which I appreciate also. Ok, David (two spaces) Pollak works for me! I plan to write it down so it does work next time. Good job and thanks again. In fact, it's kind of a fairly cool nickname - lol :-)
