Daniel Barnett | 10 comments Hello there,

I noticed this morning that the first two installments to my series, the Nightmareland Chronicles, have duplicate pages under a different author who shares the same name as me. I'm not entirely sure how this happened, but my Librarian permissions don't allow me to make the necessary changes to correct the author and combine the pages myself.

Would someone be willing to lend a hand? This other Daniel Barnett has one space between his first and last name, while I have three.

Nightfall (original): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
Nightfall (duplicate): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Lullaby (original): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
Lullaby (duplicate): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

I'm guessing this has something to do with Amazon counting the subtitle as part of the title, and Goodreads automatically generating its own page, but I'm not sure. In any case, I would so appreciate some help cleaning this up.

Daniel Barnett | 10 comments Thank you, Andrew! You're a hero.

That's good to know. Do you think someone else might have created these pages, trying to be helpful? I would love to figure out what happened, so I can avoid this issue in the future if at all possible.

Daniel Barnett | 10 comments Okay, cheers. I will be sure to do that when I release Volume 3. Thank you again.

Daniel Barnett | 10 comments Hey Andrew (or anyone else who might pop by), I made a stupid mistake while trying to prevent this problem from happening again with Volume 3. I didn't realize that paperbacks have their own ASIN, and so I added the wrong ASIN to the page, resulting in the same exact issue all over again. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience (again), but would it be possible to merge the duplicate page with the right one?

Correct: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Duplicate: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
