Thank you for your time,
Mike

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: Michael^^Chatfield , 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.
