Margaret Owen | 2 comments It turns out there is more than one Margaret Owen, and our bibliographies have gotten a bit mixed up. I'm the author of The Merciful Crow duology, and I would also like to claim the following books:

1. done

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

3. Your author profile has 2 spaces: Margaret^^Owen, where the ^ equals a space.

4. 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.

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

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

7. I combined the like editions.

If I missed something please advise.
