Caroline (caroblisslars) | 5 comments Hello,

For some reason, despite the fact that my name on the book's page and the name on my author page match exactly, my latest book has not been added to my author profile.

Here is my latest book:

Here's my author profile:

Please note that this is NOT my author page:

Can someone help me get my new book onto my author page? I appreciate it.

It seems like there should be a much easier way to accomplish this than posting a request on a forum. Is this really the way I get the right books on my author page? This and a lot about Goodreads's functionality and visual design seem really archaic. When will the site get an overhaul?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Sandra | 24791 comments Not sure why it didn't go straight to your profile, but it was auto-imported with an extra space after Caroline. Fixed.

And as a FYI only you can see your Dashboard. We only see your profile page.

Yes, the only way to get a book to your profile that was added wrongly is to request it in the Lib Group. Preferably in Book Issues.

As to your statement about GR, librarians are volunteers and all requests re site functionality should go to Support, contact link in the group header, or the new Help section, also in the header.

Caroline (caroblisslars) | 5 comments Oops, sorry for the wrong link. Thanks so much for your help with this. I've been using Goodreads for a long time as a reader, but I'm now learning the ropes as an author! I appreciate the help!
