You do not have an author profile yet.

We can create one, but we need something more than a single name to separate your book from the others by authors with that name. I see you are using a middle initial on your user profile. Would you be ok with Lucy B. as your author profile name as well?

Lucy B. | 2 comments Yes, that will work. Please make "Lucy B" as my author profile.

I think the problem started because of this ambiguity. I did not realize there other author names are available which is same as mine, so I just updated it to Lucy B, before sending the thread.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Hi Lucy,
I set the author name on your book to 'Lucy B.' (please note that Goodreads policy requires initials to be followed by a period), added cover to the paperback edition and added Kindle edition.

You can claim this profile using the link below:

If you'll chose to do it your current reader account will be merged with the author account once the claim is accepted.
