I added my book to the goodreads catalog and it linked my name (Kevin Kelly) to a different Kevin Kelly.

The book link is here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

How do I delete both names and insert the correct name with a single line of text that reads "Kevin Kelly & Chris Laingen" that links to a single profile page?

Please advise, thanks

Abcdarian | 19392 comments The book has been moved to a new profile https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... where there are 4 spaces between first and last names to disambiguate from the other Kevin Kellys. (The spaces are invisible on the page.) You can claim that profile by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

I don't think Goodreads policy will allow two names on one profile, but I'm not the final arbiter by a long shot.

Correct. Each author gets a separate profile.
