Hannah McBride (ideally_hannah) | 7 comments Hi!

There seems to be a duplicate of my book attributed to another author with my name. This one should be removed: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

The correct book is here (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...) and is linked to my profile.

Thank you!

1. Goodreads differentiates authors of the same name with spaces before the last name.

2. Your profile is Hannah^^McBride, where the ^ equals a space.

3. Books automatically imported from Amazon or any other source go to the "default" profile, with 1 space.

4. When asking for assistance, it is helpful to mention that your profile has 2 spaces.

5. Do you have your "ebook" published on any other platform besides Amazon? Amazon "ebooks" are designated as Kindle editions and use the ASIN. If you don't have an ebook published any other platform, I will merge the ebook and the Kindle edition.

6. One of your paperback editions used an ASIN, but paperbacks should use the ISBN, which was already in use. I merged the 2 paperback editions so that the only paperback edition is the correctly formatted record.

7. Your books were combined into one work, so I separated your novella into a unique work, and created a series for the 2 books.

8. I added the Kindle publication information to the novella.

9. Please advise about your ebook/Kindle so I can finishing combining your books.

i'll take care of it.
