Crystal Webster | 2 comments Hi Librarians!

I could use some help! When you search, my book has 2 entries. I can't seem to figure out how to combine them. Can someone give me guidance on how to fix this? The links to the 2 entries are below.

Thank you!!
Crystal

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: Crystal^^Webster, 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.

6. Your books are combined.

7. I slightly reformatted the title, as the Goodreads system identifies parenthetical items in the title field as a series name.
