Stephanie Vigano (stephanierosevigano) | 5 comments I published my first book "Deceived" on Amazon in December 2016 under the pen name Stephanie Rose, but once I realized how many other Stephanie Roses were out there, I scratched the pen name and re-published it under my full name, Stephanie Rose Vigano. Deceived by Stephanie Rose Vigano is not showing up on my Goodreads page because my original Deceived by Stephanie Rose somehow already became attached to another Stephanie Rose's profile, who is not me.

Here is the Deceived that is attached to the wrong Stephanie Rose:

How do I get this book removed from the incorrect profile and get the updated version moved to my page here?

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Sandra | 26906 comments I've moved Deceived to Stephanie^^^^^Rose where ^ = a space. Unfortunately, Stephanie Rose will always be the primary author for that book, we can't change it to Stephanie Rose Vigano. That's GR policy. However, we can add the new kindle edition with both names. Done.

I've created the series which ties the 2 books together.

Some information which may prove helpful in the creating the default edition:

Stephanie Vigano (stephanierosevigano) | 5 comments Thank you so much, I sincerely appreciate your help!


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 7260 comments hmmm Sandra I might be wrong on that but isn't Stephanie Rose Vigano just the more complete version of Stephanie Rose and should be possible as only author name therefore?

Yes, that is right, since the author requests it.

(It is different with f.e. public-domain editions that use the fuller name, while a shorter name was used during the author's lifetime. In those cases the fuller name should be added as a secondary author on those editions.)

Steven | 28 comments There are multiple Christopher Moore's writing books but they are all ending up under the same one on Good Reads
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
The picture here is not the same man as the Author you have this book under
https://www.amazon.com/Christopher-Mo...

these books Amazon has under a different author profile.

https://www.amazon.com/Christopher-Mo...

This book Amazon doesn't have an author profile but the book's pages's description of the author doesn't sound like who Good Reads has. "Christopher Moore is Lecturer in Digital Media and Communication at Wollongong University, Australia. He is a researcher in Games Studies, the Digital Humanities, Celebrity and Persona studies, and recently co-edited the collection Zombies in the Academy: Living Death in Higher Education (2013)."

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/081...
from amazon page above "CHRISTOPHER MOORE is associate professor of musicology at the University of Ottawa. His research focuses primarily on French music of the twentieth century, which he examines in relationship to questions of criticism, style, gender, identity, and politics. He is currently writing a book about musical criticism in France during the 1930s."

these seem unlikely to be the same Christopher Moore

Correct. Fixed.

Stephanie Vigano (stephanierosevigano) | 5 comments Awesome! Thank you everyone. :)


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 7260 comments #6 I have moved the Zombie editors editions (to the 11 space profile)
and the History of heritage + coloring book to the 10 space profile

The rest might be somthing for the project folder (including Chris Moore doubt that are really all his books...)

But: that's what happens if you have a pretty common name and are assigned to the default...
(The 4 space Christopher seems to be sort of various profile in case someone working on that further needs that info)

Abcdarian | 23422 comments If anyone takes it up, here is the Amazon page for the GR author: https://www.amazon.com/Chris-Moore/e/... He should be moved somewhere else by staff after sorting, so the default can be various.
