Chloe Morgan | 5 comments I originally published as Chloe Morgan and had a conflict with another author. I now publish as C. Morgan. How do I combine these profiles and get my books under the C. Morgan?

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Hi Chloe,
you have a couple of options:

1. You can choose to keep all your books listed under Chloe Morgan and keep only one profile on Goodreads. Goodreads policy allows for lengthening of a first initial to a full first name.

2. If you would like to use C. Morgan all the books that have been published under Chloe Morgan will have Chloe Morgan listed as a primary author. New editions or alternate cover editions with C. Morgan on the cover could be added. These would have Chloe Morgan as a primary author and C. Morgan as secondary author.

2a - You can choose to switch your claimed profile to C. Morgan. You will need to contact Goodreads support to request the switch.
or
2b - You can claim C. Morgan as your second author profile. You will have to use a different email address to claim a second profile.

Please let us know your preferred options so that alternate cover editions with C. Morgan on the cover could be added with (option 2) or without (option 1) C. Morgam as a secondary author.

Bec (gecko-girl) | 20 comments I wasnt sure the best way to fix this but not all the books listed for this author are his https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
Just Remedies & Memories, Ancedotes & Antidoes and Stethoscopes & Carving Ropes belong to this Harry Cooper (Which should actually be Dr Harry Cooper) the rest (the history books) are a different harry cooper.
Thanks

1. Goodreads does not use titles in author profiles.

2. Reviewing these

Disambiguated this author, and moved all other books to appropriate unique profiles.
