Patrick Hello! I have been an active participant on Goodreads for a while and I noticed that I have an author page?
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
I haven't written anything but I have narrated a few books for LibriVox. How do I mesh these two profiles together without erasing or "damaging" my own profile?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you!
Patrick

If you wish to claim the profile, you can do so here- https://www.goodreads.com/author/conf....

When that happens, you can indicate if any of the books currently listed on that page aren't yours. If your claim goes through, your user and author page would be merged.

Patrick Seems the titles that are missing are:

The Spanish Brothers by Deborah Alcock
The Story of Napoleon by Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall
Tor, A Street Boy of Jerusalem by Florence Morse Kingsley

Can they be added?

Emily | 13584 comments Is it this edition of Napoleon or another one?
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
I don't see an audio edition of The Spanish Brothers unless I have overlooked it. We can create one if you give us the info. (In the future please link to the specific editions.)

Patrick That version of Napoleon is fine.
I’m not sure where to find the info for Spanish Brothers because I found the Gutenberg project pdf.

Emily | 13584 comments Is there a link to the audio version somewhere?

2) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
My book - page - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

My author page I use - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Sandra | 23848 comments #9 books moved to your profile & combined. The reason they went to the wrong profile - they were imported with an extra space between the initials. So next time when setting them up at amazon etc, just make sure they don't have the space.

And FYI making librarian notes on books is pretty pointless as unless a librarian is working on the book no one would see it. Posting in the LG is the way to go.

Once the books have moved to your profile, they are pretty heavily cached, the bad profile will disappear when they run the cleanup script. So you should delete your follow the author, otherwise it might not disappear.

Patrick Since I'm an audiobook narrator and not an author, can I have my last name taken off my page?

No, the name should be as it appears in/on the book. Please correct the shelf display name.

lethe | 13732 comments Only staff can separate author profiles and user profiles. If you prefer not to have a claimed profile, you should contact them.
