Crini | 4 comments Hi,

could someone please correct this author's name:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Their name is "JY Yang", no spaces and periods between J and Y!
(as stated in their press kit: https://jyyang.com/press-kit/)

lethe | 14837 comments Goodreads policy is to have periods after initials. Also, this is a Goodreads Author and librarians cannot edit those profiles.

"JY" aren't initials, that's their name.


message 4: by Crini (new)

Crini | 4 comments Someone actually requested to wrongly add those periods:

And I know for a fact that the author asked this to be corrected in the past, but apparently it was changed back thanks to this request.

Scott | 24936 comments If it's the name then surely it should be "Jy"?

No, it's spelled JY, as is explained in the press kit by the author, which is linked above.

As Scott explained in message #2 librarians cannot edit claimed autor accounts.
The author will need to contact support. If they will agree to change the name it would be also prudent to request support to add a librarian note to the author account with the approved author name, so it will not get changed back again.
