Don Newton | 20 comments When I was creating my author account it asked me to choose my books. I'm pretty sure I was accurate when I said https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4..., was my book, but all the others were not. Now, I have every book by every Don Newton attributed to me. While I'm flattered, I'm fairly sure they might not be. Can we fix this please? There are more than 24 pages of books on my profile that are not mine.

You'll need to write to Support and let them know that this is your book, and you need your author profile moved to that one.
Let them know the name of your book again. It should be sorted out soon.

I moved over the Chronicles of Erador books as well. They may be out of print, but they are still yours.

Working on series page and title formatting.

If I understood how Goodreads works, or where the "three space profile" might be found, I probably wouldn't have the issue I am now. Where might this be? Will support know what a "three space profile" is? The same people who assigned every single book by every Don Newton ever to me?

So how did you know they were mine? The only way you could is if you saw my original answers to the question "Which of these books are yours?" So how did I end up with every one of these books assigned to me?

Don Newton | 20 comments And before you think I'm not grateful for your help, I am. But the enormity of this error just baffles me. It might be easier to just change my name...

This issue of False Gods is not part of THE PROPHET series. Book one of The Prophet releases on October 12. But I guess we can fix that later.

Don Newton | 20 comments I did my best to explain this to support. Now we'll see what happens. Thank you both!

They are on your Amazon page, so they were probably seen when adding information about the other book.

Don Newton | 20 comments So, now the book is here https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... it looks all correct, has me as the author, but it doesn't show here https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
So that's progress...
But, I can't figure out how to get that book to show up on my page. Help? And Trial of Sa'riya should be the ONLY book that's a part of THE PROPHET SERIES. It's there but it's combined with the ASCENSION issues, and it shouldn't be.

Emily | 14473 comments You have to set it as the primary edition to see it.
Go to the new edition and follow these instructions:
https://help.goodreads.com/s/article/...

It is correctly combined with the other editions. Republished/rebranded books are still combined with the originals.

Please do not edit valid information on existing editions. If you would like the Kindle edition added you can do that or someone can do it for you. Then you can set the default edition to that one.
