Avery Duncan (authoraveryd) | 5 comments Hi, This is my book, but it has been given to a different author with the same name.

Is there a way to stop this in future? (it's auto adding the titles from Amazon)

TIA! Avery

The only way to keep it from happening is to add the book with the ASIN or ISBN before the import occurs.

Avery Duncan (authoraveryd) | 5 comments how long does it usually take for the import to happen? (I'll have to remember this for next time)

and thank you :)

It depends on a number of factors, so it is highly variable.
