Eva Marie (evamarie3578) | 755 comments There is a new author:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

and the name 'Unique' is already in our system. Since it's one word I'm not sure how to handle it.

Melody (runningtune) | 13278 comments They are actually the same author. They are both Kiki Swinson books. There was one listing for Unique who did not belong (Unique Soul) and I removed it.

Owen O'Brien (owenobrien) | 3 comments Hello,

I have a similar issue. I am the author of "Shiver Shake" and my name is Owen O'Brien. According to goodreads, I am also the author of "Changing Step: A Guide to Career Transition to Civilian Life for Men and Women of the Australian Defence Force" which was co-authored by another person also named Owen O'Brien.

Is it possible to separate us into separate authors?

Thanks!

-Owen O'Brien (Shiver Shake)

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments Owen - I have separated you out we disambiguate by adding a space between first and last name - Your author profile is Owen^O'Brien(the other person Owen^^O'Brien.

Have you activated your author profile - if not and you want to then follow the link below

Thank you Melody. Not sure how I missed that since it should have been pretty obvious. Thanks though!
