Taro (ts55) | 10 comments Jonathan Rauch has two profiles:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

The former is his Goodreads author profile, to which the latter should be merged.

Manon「マノン」 (thenthememoriesfade) | 888 comments GR Librarians can't merge "Goodreads Author" profiles that are claimed by the author (which is the case for the first link you sent), only GR staff can do it. You need to use the contact feature for this.

I send them your request and it should be merge soon by GR staff!

message 9: by Simon (new)

Simon Chadwick | 4 comments Could someone please help me too? My children's picture books are written as Simon Chadwick, but because there is a novelist of the same name the book I've just added is written as Simon R Chadwick. Can it still be added to my list despite the extra 'R' in the name?

This is my profile:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
This is the book I need to add:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

Thank you!

Hi Simon,
firstly, Goodreads policy is for initials to be marked with a period.
Secondly, I linked the book to your claimed profile by adding your claimed profile name as a secondary author.
Thirdly, if you wish to have all the books listed togather, you have an option of changing your claimed profile name to 'Simon R. Chadwick'. Please contact support for them to proceed the change if that's your choice.
