Gary W. Burns (gary_w_burns) | 3 comments One of my books has the author as Gary W. Burns and is not showing up on my dashboard. I need the author name changed to Gary William Burns which is the author name on all my other books so that this book will be the same as the others in the database and show up on my dashboard.
Book URL:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Thank you.

Abcdarian | 19941 comments Done. As all your books have Gary W. Burns on the covers, it might be a good idea for us to change your author name to match. There is a follower currently on the Gary W. profile (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...) so I will request that the profiles be merged by staff.

If you have any objection to us changing from William to W., please post.

That sort of change is only done by author request. The author has not so requested.

Gary W. Burns (gary_w_burns) | 3 comments I have no objections; please change all to W. rather than William.
Thanks.

Done. Please note that some of your books have imported in the past under the name Gary William Burns. If more do in the future, they will need to be moved. Just post here again and one of our wonderful librarians will take care of it.
