Amanda Evans (amandajevansauthor) | 10 comments I have a new book just published and when I went to add it to my books, it is coming up under a different author profile. https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

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

What I've discovered is that my profile has a period after my middle initial and there are a number of books that should be listed under my profile but aren't because when they were added to goodreads they didn't have the period after my middle initial.

Is it possible to remove the period after the J in my name on my real profile https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... and combine both profiles so all my books are listed under my profile?

Many thanks

(This is my profile but I would like to have the period after the J removed and have it combined with the profile for Amanda J Evans so that all my books show on the one profile.)

Emily | 12959 comments Goodreads standards use periods after initials regardless of how they appear on book covers or elsewhere. The Adding New Books folder is to request books to be added. Next time just post in the Book Issues folder.

Thank you Emily, I didn't realise that the issue was relating to adding books. I thought I needed to get both profiles combined. Thanks for letting me know though and I will make sure to use the book issues folder if there are any problems in the future.
