Michael Allen Allen | 2 comments Hi, my book is on Goodreads under the author name "Michael O'Leary", which is the same name as several other authors. This means I can't claim it without claiming all their books, too. I actually use "Michael A. O'Leary Jr" as my author name, so changing the author name on my book to that name would solve the problem. The book is:

Is it possible to change the author name of Térata so we can fix this issue? If not, how can I go about claiming only Térata, and not everything else?
