Miranda Paul | 10 comments I don't know how or why this keeps happening, but these books keep getting automatically added to the other Miranda Paul author page, not mine.

Can someone switch and attribute MIA MOVES OUT to the correct profile page? Thank you!

Title: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Correct Author Page: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Thank you. If you have any advice for why this keeps happening or how to prevent it, that'd be wonderful. Thanks.

Arenda | 20237 comments Moved the book to your profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...

This book (and the books from the other two threads) were added by automated imports. These imports can't determine if there is more than one author with the same name. The other profile is the 'default' Miranda Paul profile where all imported editions end up.

As to prevent it: you'll have to add the book yourself, to your profile, before it can be imported. Make sure the isbn or ASIN is attached to the listing, as that's what is checked by the imports.

And if you would have the 'default' Miranda Paul profile, all books by other authors with that name will end up on your profile and need to be moved from it.

Moving books to or from an author profile is usually a quick and easy thing to do.
