Jessica Lewis (papertraildiary) | 68 comments Hi there, I just added a book, but it automatically made itself under the wrong author. How can I fix it or make sure it gets the right pages when adding? Thanks!

Here's the book:

Here's the author page that should be linked:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Ah, thanks! And can I ask why the titles/ISBNs had to be changed? That title is incorrect now, the second part is not a subtitle. It's just a really long title! https://www.playwrightscanada.com/ind...

And now I can't seem to edit the book anymore myself.

...I know the cover is misleading too. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We usually use '/' to indicate the book consisting of two separate stories collected in one book.
If you want I can change the colon to hyphen, coma or period.

In the sort by title field the word 'the' should be at the end, so I corrected it. For the future adds you can leave this field empty and it will populate itself correctly.

I also corrected ISBN from 1770979099 to 1770919090.

It is two separate plays in one book. The proper title includes the '/' so it'd be best if that can stay. However I see it's an ampersand on Amazon, so that could be used. How come I can't edit the page anymore?

Thanks about my ISBN and sort-by mistakes.
