Josh J. Cole (joshjcole) | 2 comments Hi, I'd like to claim the short story collection 9Tales Told In the Dark as one of it's authors, but it was added under another Joshua Cole's name. Is there a way to do this that I'm missing?

Hilary (hilarywithonel) | 40 comments Do you have an author profile already? Different authors with the same name are kept separate by a varying number of spaces between first and last name, so Joshua^sCole will not be the same as Joshua^s^sCole.

I am the Editor for the following Author J.Thiele (Jordin Thiele)
Blood Runs Deep
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
Bloodties
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...


Author Profile: Melissa Bell is not me and has never been me.
https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...

However her profile lists the following as her books
Blood Runs Deep
Bloodties
Defying Death
EROS

The only book that should be listed on that Author's Page is
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...

All the rest are mine, I have no idea why it seems to want to give this other author of only one book all of my glory but can someone please fix it. I do not want her profile confused with mine or vice versa. Thanks!

your profile is Melissa^^Bell which ^ = space, to disambiguate with other Melissa Bell. So, if somebody or auto imports added your book using Melissa^Bell, then it will go straight to this default Melissa Bell. If this happen, just post a new thread...

My author name and profile are Josh J. Cole, and I think I'm the only one. I'm not sure if I have an author profile per say, since this would be my first credit.

Mohamed Yosri (yosri) Since you are not (Goodreads Author), I undo my changes and let other librarian to decide.

Book's description says Joshua Cole, so I made the listed author Joshua J. Cole.

Josh, you can claim the new author profile here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/conf...

I also moved up the editor to the primary author slot, as we do for anthologies.
