message 1: by Jane (new) - added it

Jane Davis (janedavis) | 11 comments Hi, At the Stroke of Nine O'Clock has been added to the wrong Jane Davis profile. Please can you change it to https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (I note that Smash all the Windows is also showing against the other Jane Davis author profile, but is also shown at 68689939.) Many thanks.

done

Goodreads disambiguates between authors of the same name by using spaces between the author's first and last name.

Your author profile has 4 spaces: Jane^^^^Davis, where the ^ equals a space.

When publications are automatically imported from Amazon or other sources, the "handshake' between Goodreads and the other source do not recognize multiple spaces, so the work goes to the default 1 space profile.

When you ask for assistance, it is helpful to include that your author profile has 4 spaces.
