Brian Reeves | 2 comments Hi there,

I tried to add some books I wrote to my author profile, but something is wrong and it won't let me add them. It thinks I'm someone else.

My author profile currently lists *A Chant of Love and Lamentation*, which is mine, but the following books are also mine:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

There are also a few books on Amazon that aren't showing up on Goodreads, not sure why.
The Burning Warriors, ASIN: B07XRB5W21
Island of the Dead, ASIN: B007Q8RGI8
The Forbidden Shore, ASIN: B07XSD2P5K
Heart of Fire, ASIN: B07XSFFP78

Thanks!

I've moved everything to your profile. For future reference when adding books yourself, you are Brian^^Reeves- each ^ indicates a space between first and last name, and is the method GR uses to disambiguate authors with the same name.

I also added the other titles, and created a series here- https://www.goodreads.com/series/2718....

While the ASIN information is helpful for a new book addition, please take a look at this for any future add requests- https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

Brian Reeves | 2 comments Thank you so much!

Not sure how I ended up with an extra space between my first and last name. Is it possible to remove that? Or was it done because I share a name with someone else?

Sandra | 22746 comments The spaces are what GR uses to distinguish between authors, so no we can't remove the space.

The Adding New Books folder is for requesting the addition of books that don't yet exist on Goodreads. Moved to Book Issues.

Emily | 13000 comments The space does not show on your main page or in your book records seen by readers. It is just on the editing pages.

And the mobile app.
