1. Goodreads cataloging standards require periods after initials, and disambiguates between authors of the same name by using spaces before the author's last name.

2. Your author profile has 2 spaces: D.L.^^Jones, where the ^ equals a space.

3. 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.

4. You can post in this forum to have it moved, or you can add the book with the 3 spaces before your last name before publication.

5. When you ask for assistance, it is helpful to include that your author profile has 2 spaces.

6. When you add a book, it will go directly to your profile if you go to this page:

Books by D.L. Jones

and scroll down to where it says: * Note: these are all the books on Goodreads for this author. To add more books, click here. [there is a hyperlink for adding your books on the "Click Here " that will ensure your author name is correctly formatted.
