message 1: by Trisha (new)

Trisha (standingcrow) | 7 comments I apologize in advance for the confusion - obviously having my “nickname” was a bad idea. I am hoping you can correct this for me, I’d fix it myself but my request for librarian status has not been approved.

My correct and complete author profile is: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

I have self-published 3 books:

Chakras and Chakra Balancing (ebook and softcover) - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

When Darkness Meets Light (ebook, hardcover and softcover) - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Woofie Makes New Friends (ebook and softcover; also Amazon softcover which has not been added yet) - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

All versions should be on my profile (above).

However, because I made a wreck of things with my nickname (Willow) or “Willow”, there are now two empty author profiles with some version of one or more of the books listed above. Those profiles need to be deleted if possible as they are all me, and all of my info is complete on the correct profile listed at the beginning of this post. In case you need to know, all books are published under my real name, Trisha Perkinson (without the nickname) and I can provide links to where they are available online as well if you need verification of this.

The extra profiles that should be removed are:

(Willow) - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

“Willow” - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

I apologize again for the confusion I created. And thank you in advance 😁😁😁

Please let me know if you need anything else to correct this *err* mess I unintentionally created :/

Scott | 26316 comments The Chakra book has Patricia Boyd Perkinson on the cover, so I had to change it to that.

I removed the Willow from the other book as the cover just has Tricia Perkinson.

Scott | 26316 comments For the Woofie book, can you tell us how the author name actually reads on/in the book? I cannot tell from the cover displayed, and the links to Amazon don't bring anything up (it looks like one of the copies has an ISBN13 in the wrong field.)


message 4: by Trisha (new)

Trisha (standingcrow) | 7 comments It says, “written and illustrated by Trisha Perkinson.”


message 5: by Trisha (new)

Trisha (standingcrow) | 7 comments And I understand on the Chakra book. Thank you for all your help.


message 6: by Trisha (new)

Trisha (standingcrow) | 7 comments Is the ISBN 13 wrong field on goodreads or amazon? Here are the links to Amazon -

softcover: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/171818...

Kindle edition: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07GL4...

I hope that helps

Scott | 26316 comments Ok I fixed the author on Woofie. On this edition:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
it looks like an ISBN13 trying to fit into an ISBN10 slot.


message 8: by Trisha (new)

Trisha (standingcrow) | 7 comments Okay Thank you so much! The white cover Woofie paperback was published through blurb with ISBN: 978-0-46-493900-9. Can you change that or should I? This is not the same edition of paperback available through amazon (different cover and ISBN - which I have not added yet on goodreads. We’re you able to delete the two extra blank Author profiles? And are you able to add the Chakra book on my author profile even with the name variation?


message 9: by Trisha (new)

Trisha (standingcrow) | 7 comments I now have all the editions and correct formats for Woofie. My author profile shows the book, however when clicking on the “Amazon” link, it cannot locate. Is there any way to change the primary edition of this book to the Amazon paperback, as this is the primary edition I will be promoting.

The link to that edition is - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4.... All four Editions are available online, but through Amazon is how I want readers to be able to find and purchase the book.

I know I’ve been a real pain, and I apologize for that. I appreciate all your hard work and your help 😁
