Ray Padgett | 4 comments Hi! I've got my second book out next week:

It's currently attributed to the wrong Ray Padgett. This is me:


Edit: Also, it doesn't look like I can add an author photo, but there is one here:

Alison | 944 comments Moved book to Ray^^Padgett. ^ represents one space. Goodreads uses spaces to separate authors of the same name.

Is "Various Artists' " correct as part of the title? I don't see it on the cover.

That author photo has a credit on your site to the photographer. We are unable to credit photographers on Goodreads so I did not upload it. If you claim the profile you'd be able to upload a photo. Scroll down to "Is this you? Let us know." if you wish to convert your user profile to a claimed Goodreads Author profile.

Ray Padgett | 4 comments You don't need to credit the photographer, that's just in case any outlets do need some sort of credit (it's just a photo my wife shot). Thanks! Just filled out the claim form too.

M.L. Johnson (mlynnjohnson) | 1 comments This is a similar issue to mine. I'm the author for Rourke's Remorse (Melissa L. Johnson), but book is credited to Melvin L. Johnson.

How do I get this fixed?

Emily | 14839 comments Do you want it listed as M.L. Johnson or Melissa L. Johnson?
Do you have any other books?
