Babs (babsbookbistro) | 22 comments This book....

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... Is linked to

Elliott Baker but not the right one the below link is the right author and I have no clue how to make it happen.

Thanks :)

Z-squared | 8580 comments The second profile you linked to is a personal profile, not an author profile. We can't link books to personal profiles, just author ones. And as that author hasn't claimed his profile, his book will appear on the 'default' Elliott Baker profile here:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Presumably he may have written some (or all) of the other books on that profile as well.

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments That link to Elliott Baker is to a user profile not an Author Profile. There is only one Elliott Baker Author Profile on GoodReads if you look up authors with similar names.

Babs (babsbookbistro) | 22 comments Can he changed his profile to author one with out the book? I thought they had to have the book first
