Avinash Ramakrishna (teacheravi) | 2 comments I recently joined goodreads as an author and I was adding my new book to my profile and it went to another author with the same name! The link to the book is https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5.... The book should go under my profile, Avi from Crab Orchard, TN

Sandra | 22729 comments Avi, you need to have an author profile that is separate from the other Avis'.

I've moved your book to a clean profile, so you are now Avi^. Which is how we distinguish between single names. The ^ represents a space then with a period after it.

To claim your profile scroll down the author page to the link, Is this you? Let us know. Once approved, support will then merge your author profile & reader profile.

I've also added your paperback edition.

Thanks, Sandra, but I'd rather just use my full name rather than a space and period. I've changed the author profile to reflect Avinash Ramakrishna, so now how do I get my book linked to my profile? Thanks.
