1. done

2. Goodreads differentiates between authors of the same name by adding spaces before the last name.

3. Your author profile is designated as: Rosie^^Jones where the ^ equals a space.

4. It is very helpful to mention that your profile has 2 spaces when asking for assistance.

5. Is there a series name for these books?

Rosie Jones (rosiejonesauthor) | 5 comments Thanks Suzi, I wasn’t aware of that so will keep it in mind for future! They’re from the Battle series.
Thanks
Rosie

Series created.

Authors don't usually know about the spaces, and it makes it a lot easier for librarians to help if you can tell them.

For future reference, the Adding New Books folder is for requesting the addition of books that don't yet exist on Goodreads. Moved to Book Issues.
