Brenda Kirton | 28 comments I don't believe some of the books attributed Diane Kelly are hers. The cover for Fossils says Diane J Kelly. And the cover for Stick Insect says Diane A Kelly . The third anomaly in the list is Methods for evaluating... Might be a separate author as well. All three of these books are a departure from the style of the the author of the three fiction novels and from what is written in her bio.

Amara Tanith (aftanith) According to her website, the only books she's written are the Death, Taxes, and ______ series, so the incorrectly attributed three have been moved. :)

Deidre (AlaskaReader) | 1 comments Not sure how to fix this. Author James Cook with one kindle zombie book No Easy Hope ( Surviving the Dead)
by James Cook
is combined with Capt James Cook, long dead. Perhaps they are the same, maybe he is a zombie now. How do we fix this? Neither one are Goodreads authors.

message 8: by Amara (new)

Amara Tanith (aftanith) Fixed. Capt. James Cook is James^Cook, while the correct author for No Easy Hope is James^^Cook.

Sandi Jones | 2 comments Can someone please separate the books wrongly attributed to my adult author name. I am author Sandra Jones, and I have published Midnight Cravings and Wish for the Moon. The other books are a different "Sandra Jones." Thanks!

Amara Tanith (aftanith) Both books have been moved, and if you're interested, you can claim your author profile here.

(And in an amusing coincidence, "Sandra Jones" is also my mother's name. ;) )

Sandi Jones | 2 comments Thanks! I created a author profile under "Sandra Jones."

R.W. Gray | 2 comments For some reason my author profile and the book I authored have been separated when they used to be joined.



I think it might be because someone edited and put in my full name instead of the pen name. But I changed that back and it's not re-linking.

Any help would be appreciated.

The author names has to match EXACTLY. The book had a space between the initials.

All fixed.
