Travis Hill (angrygames) | 9 comments Please add "Three Days" to the correct Travis Hill (note: 2 spaces between names) author profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Title: "Three Days"
ASIN: B07XCSGD71
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XCSGD71

I apologize, but this happens every time I publish a new book -- GR never attributes it to the 2-space Travis Hill.

As always, thank you very much!

annob | 1615 comments Hi, book moved to your profile: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

The book was automatically imported, and when that happens the author name is written in exactly like it's written on the source site. That is why it ended up on the generic profile for your name. The only way I know of stopping the import is to add a new book manually to your author page prior to the import takes palce, and make sure you fill in the ISBN or ASIN in the appropriate fields. If the ASIN/ISBN already exists in Goodreads database, the import process is blocked from adding a duplicate record.

However, moving a book is quick and easy for a Librarian, if you want to avoid the time it takes to manually add your future books.
