Is a book I just wrote. Is there no other way to claim my own works on GR than asking Librarians?

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Moved to your profile. If you are adding the book yourself, inserting an extra space between your first and last names (Steve^^Windsor) will send it to your profile, but in the case of automatic imports like this one, it goes to the single space profile. Not a problem for us to move books though.

Steve Windsor (authorstevewindsor) | 12 comments Hmmmm. Why does my profile have 2 spaces?

Melaslithos | 1356 comments Adding spaces is GR's way of disambiguating authors with the same name.

Sharon | 8 comments I am a new author and I wanted to know how to have my book put under my profile. The is another author with the same name how can I separate us to create my own author profile.

"Occasionally you may come across an author profile that encompasses two or more authors of the same name. In order to separate these authors and their respective books you will need to identify which books belong to which author. Once you have, leave one author alone and for the second, go into the edit page of each of their books and add an additional space between their first and last name.

This will create a new author profile for the second author.

If by chance there is a third author of the same name (which has happened), simply add a third space between the author's first and last name."

M.J.L. Evans (mjlevans) | 5 comments How do you get your book to show under your profile? My first one is there, but the second isn't and I've added it to Goodreads - not sure what to do.

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #9 - If you could provide a link/ASIN/ISBN for the one not showing we could look into it, without that it can be hard to know what you are talking about.


message 11: by Philip (new)

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #9/10 - I think I found it. Should be in your profile now, but please provide link/ASIN/ISBN when putting a request in.

Reason it was not showing in your profile was because you forgot the period between your initials. You Profile is "M.J.L. Evans"
