Harlequin Books (harlequinbooks) | 67 comments Hello, I ran across an interesting issue today. After I added Lakeside Reunion by debut author Lisa Jordan I clicked on the author name and was brought to http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... It had other titles so I went to the author website (http://www.lisajordanbooks.com/p/writ...) to make sure she did not have other books and she does not. I then searched for her here on goodreads and found a profile for her, http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/63...

Does she need to make her profile an author profile before the book can be removed from the other author's profile? I contacted the debut author Lisa Jordan about the issue and let her know she should probably change her account to an author one but I am not sure when or if she will.

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments There are a number of authors named Lisa Jordan, I disambiguated them.

Your Lisa Jordan is Lisa^Jordon where ^= space. (the other is Lisa^^Jordan).

I have added some author details. If you want to send her this link it will allow her to claim her author profile

Kim | 604 comments This is a difficult one as you're only using a single name we can't do the normal way of disambiguating authors. I have removed the book by putting it under Julio Cesar where there were already some editions.
