Shereen Vedam | 122 comments Hi there,

My book (I'm in a boxed set) is showing up as a new profile instead of in my profile. Could the two profiles be merged so the book shows up under my dashboard? And can we remove the blank profile with my name on it?

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (this looks like a blank profile)

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (this is my profile)

Jane Blythe Hello

I'm part of the same multi-author boxed set as Shereen and have the same issue. Could you please make the boxed set show up under my profile and get rid of the extra blank profile. Thanks!

This is the blank profile - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

And this is my profile - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

The book appears to be have the correct Jane Blythe attached to it. If it was changed recently, it may take some time for it to disappear.

Edit: Weird, both profiles are formatted the same way. I don't know how there can be two.

It happens; I had one earlier today. If there's no GR author involved, just backspacing and then spacing again will usually fix it so they will merge.
