Grumpytinkerer | 2 comments Hi,

I have added the following 3 books.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

But they have been added to the wrong author: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

To my knowledge the "Jacq" who wrote the three books that I added does not have an author page. It's a pseudonym of the author Pierre Pevel.

Regards.

Sandra | 26084 comments Moved them to a new profile.

As its a single name author profile I've added a period to the end of the name. So Jacq.

MissBecka Gee (missbeckagee) | 14 comments Hiya! I added a new book (They Call Me Gomer...), but it added it to the wrong author with the same name.
Should be added to this author's profile The correct J.C. Miller instead please.
Thanks in advance!

I moved the book.

Did you add the book from the author page?

If you add the book from the author page, there is a note at the bottom:

* Note: these are all the books on Goodreads for this author. To add more books, click here.

That makes sure that it goes to the correct author.
