Zoë | 6 comments Hello
How do you create a new author profile? Currently https://www.goodreads.com/author/list... has a number of books that are by different Michael Stewarts. I have been asked by the author if he could have a profile set up with his titles attached.

thanks
Zoë

Ismail | 2201 comments Please list all the books written by Michael Stewart who you know, and I (or any other librarian) will move them to a new profile, not the default one that all the books by any author with the same name go to. After that he can claim his profile.
Thanks Zoë

Zoë | 6 comments Hello,

The same author has been unable to edit his most recent book that has been attributed to the wrong author. Please advise.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... should be on https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Could you also confirm that he should be able to edit his owen if he has claimed his own profile?

thanks
Zoë

What does he want to edit?


message 8: by Zoë (new)

Zoë | 6 comments Thanks Scott - is he allowed to move his own books if they have been assigned to wrong author?


message 9: by Scott (new)

Scott | 25113 comments It's not possible. Only librarians can do it.

Zoë | 6 comments Thank you for confirming. I will update the author.
