Bob (snowmanexpert) | 1 comments My new book The Elements of Stress and the Pursuit of Happy-ish to not attributed to me but a different Bob Eckstein, or at least another account of my name. That account has 8 friends (I am the contributor on the other books listed under that name as well.) Mine has 368 friends. Can the accounts be combined? That would fix this. But for now I can't add my new book to my dashboard.
Thanks,
Bob

I have moved the books to your profile but to have the profiles merged you would need to ask support. Librarians cannot work with claimed profiles.

Henry Davis | 5 comments My book Creating Christianity is linked to my old account. I have now deleted that account as I was not the only Henry Davis on here, so I have created a new account Henry.Daviscc

Could the following book and the past versions of the book be linked to my new account?

Thanks

You don't currently have an author account.

Is that your only book? It can be moved to its own account and you can claim it as the author if you like.

Henry Davis | 5 comments Hi Scott, Yes, that is my only book, if you can move it so I can claim it that would be great, thank you.
