Jeff Wilson (jeffwilsonbooks) | 1 comments Book ASIN: B00V7LCOGY is incorrectly displayed under the wrong Jeff Wilson profile. Can you please edit the book details so that it will be correctly associated with my author profile (part of a series connected to The Blood Prince ASIN: B00RHB6P3Q)

There is also a separate Createspace paperback edition for this book that needs to be added to Goodreads.

ISBN-10: 1511530243
ISBN-13: 978-1511530248

I would appreciate any help you may be able to provide with these issues.

Traci Anne Hayden (TraciAHayden) | 4 comments This is getting very frustrating...my book that was published yesterday is already on Goodreads under another author by the same name...this other author hasn't published anything since 2011 and is still being linked to MY books...btw, this is the 2nd time this year (2015) this has happened. How can we stop this from happening and how can I get MY book under MY profile.

MY PROFILE https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

OTHER AUTHOR'S PROFILE
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

MY BOOK (NOT HERS)

DUPLICATE OF BOOK THAT NEEDS TO BE DELETED

Goodreads is an incredible place to find the next great read, but it is extremely frustrating for an author to have control of their book. Someone else added my book and added it to the wrong author. Maybe consider stopping readers from adding books so the author can be sure the book is listed properly. Or consider a way of allowing the reader to pick the correct author instead of a mistake happening.

Abcdarian | 19813 comments Books moved to your profile and blank edition merged.

The other author's profile has the single space between names, which means auto-imports go there automatically. Your author profile has two spaces between the names (Traci^^Hayden) in order to differentiate your books from the other same name author. If you add your book yourself, just insert the extra space and it will go to your profile.

Your books were not added by readers but by automatic outside book-seller sources. It is not difficult for a librarian to move the books; please don't stress over it.

It gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book or author is also used for other books. I am closing this thread. Start new ones for other books.
