Joseph Smith | 1 comments I have searched in many areas but unable to find answer besides being directed to this location for help also used the contact option but was unable to send information just the response of "Goodreads request took too long."

So here is as much detail information at this time I can give you.

I am having a problem getting a book that I wrote into the right Author location. It went to the wrong Author but has similar name.

Below is the URL that shows the book in wrong location.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Below is the URL at Amazon that shows proof I am the Author of the book.

https://www.amazon.com/Come-Build-Us-...

Here is the ASIN Number below.
ASIN: B08GCV1V7W

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

2. Your author profile has 2 spaces: Joseph F.^^Smith, 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 before your last name before publication.

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