1. Goodreads disambiguates between authors of the same name by using spaces before the author's last name.

2. Your author profile has 2 spaces: D.M.^^Sears, 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 2 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.M. Sears

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.

7. The covers that are available on Amazon are updated, and your series is created:

The Untimely Journey of Veronica T. Boone Series


8. I added some information to this profile: Michael Bleriot
and a link to your D.M. Sears profile.


9. The original author's name on the cover must remain the primary author, so D.M. Sears is added to, but as the secondary author of the Bleriot books.

10. I formatted the titles/series names to conform to Goodreads standard naming conventions.
