Ros Jackson | 6 comments I added the print version of my book in order to run a giveaway, but for some reason it's created a new author entry. This is the book in question:

I can't edit it because it doesn't recognise me as the author, and I need to add a slightly different cover. This is the book, with all of its ebook versions: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

The print cover is here: http://www.rosjackson.co.uk/banner/ts...

I can't seem to merge it myself, thanks!

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Librarians can't merge profiles if one is a claimed Goodreads Author profile, but there's a thread to ask staff to do it. I merged the books by adding Kate Flora to the Kate Clark Flora books but considering some are published with that name, there will probably continue to be automatic imports to the Clark profile, so it may not be worth asking for the merge.
