Vera Hollins | 35 comments Hello,

Someone has made an author profile for me on Goodreads and added my Wattpad books to it. I'm a Wattpad author and I haven't been published until now. The problem is that this author profile is called "veramimic". They got my last name wrong because it's not "Mimic" but "Micic".

I want to claim this profile, but I want to change the name from "veramimic" to "Vera Micic". Is that possible and what would happen with the books that are under the wrong name?

Thank you,
Vera Micic

Here is the form for claiming that profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/conf... When it goes through it will merge with your current reader profile.

Vera Hollins | 35 comments Hello!

I submitted the form you left me here ten days ago, but so far, there is no response from Goodreads and that author profile is still not merged with my reader profile. Can you tell me how long it takes Goodreads to process requests like mine? Should I submit this form again?

Thank you!

Abcdarian | 23417 comments My guess is something went wrong; it usually doesn't take much time. I'd try it again. If it doesn't go through in a day or so, email Support (@ goodreads.com) .
