Andrea | 2 comments hello...this book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

should also be on my author profile:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

There should be 3 books on my author profile:
Heart of Stone,
Mamaw's Kitchen
Climb

There is another author profile named Andrea Cannon with no picture or information. This is not me. One of the books listed, Dark Magnolia, is not mine.

thank you

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

2. Your author profile has 2 spaces: Andrea^^Cannon, where the ^ equals a space.

3. 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.

4. You can post in this forum to have it moved, or you can add the book with the 2 spaces between your first and last name before publication.

5. When you ask for assistance, it is helpful to include that your author profile has 2 spaces.
