Paula (paulakrapf) | 29 comments I have a client, Lee Harrington, who is author of Rex and the City. There is another Lee Harrington on Goodreads, author of completely different books. We created an author profile for our Lee, the Rex author, but the other author's books still show up as our Lee's - obviously not fair for either one. Can you help figure out how I can separate the listings for the Lees, or can someone here help out? Thank you! Our Lee is only author of the Rex book, the other Lee is author of six books:

Shibari You Can Use: Japanese Rope Bondage and Erotic Macram

Sacred Kink: The Eightfold Paths of Bdsm and Beyond

The Toybag Guide to Age Play

Ropes, Bondage, And Power: Power Exchange Books' Resource Series

Spirit of Desire: Personal Explorations of Sacred Kink

Like Tooth and Claw: Shapeshifter Erotica

Thank you!

Can you give me a link to the author profile? You have to add an extra space between first and last names. I did that on the book page, but somehow lost the link to the author page. So, I put the book page back like it was.

Here's the explanation from the manual of what I am talking about:

Paula (paulakrapf) | 29 comments Thank you! Let me take a look at the manual - this is the link I have for the other Lee: http://www.goodreads.com/author/edit/...

It's just weird. Before I went in to edit the book details, I saw an author profile page with a picture of a lady with blond hair, and quite a bit of text. Then I added the space to the name, and went to edit the author page, and couldn't find it! I hope I didn't inadvertently make more work for you!

(I'm sorry if I did!)

Paula (paulakrapf) | 29 comments No I don't think so. Lee - my client - has an author profile set up now: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/76.... What I'm hoping is if I click on the other Lee profile, the one with no photo, and add the extra space, that I can then take the Rex book off that profile and both Lees then have their own profiles/book listings :)

I would think you would have to edit the data for all of her books, if you added the space to her name. Each book would need to have the "correct" spelling attached to it.

Yep, that's the profile I saw and "lost"! :)

Paula (paulakrapf) | 29 comments I think so... I'm going to give it a shot. Thank you for your help!
