Whoops - I'll start a new thread for it.

Harlequin Books (HarlequinBooks) | 55 comments I was adding Debut author Mary Moore's (http://www.goodreads.com/goodreadscom... ) book The Aristocrat's Lady to my bookshelf when I discovered there is another Mary Moore (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...) author page when I tried to combine issue of The Aristocrat's Lady. The print issue is showing up on the correct profile but the eBook issues are showing up on the incorrect profile.

Would you please fix this or instruct me on how to correct the issue.

Mary Moore is a common name, so we have several of them. Yours is Mary-3space-Moore (there are 3 spaces between her first and last names). When books are imported, they always default to the 1space version of the author. To move them, edit each book and add 2 additional spaces on the author line, then save.

It's just too many books to do it manually.
Thanks.

58 books? I'm impressed you even considered it!

Merged.


Book Wish Foundation (bookwish) | 3 comments Author http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... should be merged into http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

Two works are listed for the former: What You Wish For: A Book for Darfur, which should be attributed to the latter, but is not, and Irises which is currently attributed to both.

Thank you!

Sandra  (MyFictionNook) | 257 comments Hi,
I think this author http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... might be the same as this author http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... but I don't know how to prove it. Can someone help me figure this out? I've moved books from Traci Hall to Traci E. Hall because that's how Worldcat listed them, but based on the genre of those books, I think the two Traci Halls might be the same.
Thank you!

Lea-Ellen (Lea-Ellen_night_owl_in_IL) | 9 comments Sandra (TMoT) - message 979 -
I have merged these two author profiles (they are the same author - I checked out the books on her website). I also added her biography info. (Her website was listed on one of the links you provided.)

Lea Ellen {night owl in IL}
