Mark (goodreadscommarkgillespie) | 33 comments Hi,

Could you please move the following book to the correct author profile please? All my books seem to go to this author first and if there's any way of fixing this I'd truly appreciate it.

Book -

Author profile - you very much.

P.S. There is a copy of 'After the End Trilogy' in this author's profile. This is also my book although it appears in my profile too so no need to add it, just to delete from this author's profile. Thanks.

Arenda | 22173 comments Both moved to your profile. The After the End Trilogy is a valid paperback edition, combined with the Kindle edition that was already on your profile.

Goodreads imports books from various sources. These automated imports can't distinguish between authors with the same name. So either the author/publisher has to add the book (with isbn/ASIN, as that's what is checked by the imports) to the right author profile on GR, or a Librarian has to move the imported books (which is an quick and easy task, especially when the link to the book and the correct author profile are included in the request, like you did).

Mark (goodreadscommarkgillespie) | 33 comments Thanks for your help Arenda. I do try to add the books manually with ASIN but the ASIN is already taken very quickly and moved to this other author's profile.

No big problem though.

Thanks for your help.
