annob | 1729 comments Hi,
I'm a Librarian in need of some advice. I am trying to add pen name to a book record, but when I press save the second author name isn't added. All other edits are stored, but not the added name. So I'm guessing there is a technical reason, like the author pages have been linked and therefor reject the name as 'duplicate' or something.

These are the two author pages in question:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (claimed profile)
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (currently writing as)

Anyone who has ideas how to solve the issue?

- I'm not keen on leaving half a series on the current 'landing page'
- I'm equally not keen on moving the first half of the series off a claimed profile, and back to the current 'landing page'
