Esther Autumn (estherjautumn) | 1 comments Hello, my book doesn't appear underneath my author profile, although the listed author name is the exact same? Here is the book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...
Is there anything I can do in the future to prevent this?

1. The book was automatically imported from Amazon. Your Amazon profile does not have the period " . " after your middle initial.

2. The only way to keep it from happening is to change your Amazon author name to have the standard period after your middle initial.

3. Goodreads cataloging standards require that your middle initial has the period after it, so changing that is not an option.

4. You can also add, or ask on this forum to have added, your new work before it is imported from Amazon.
