❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) I've added the .pdf and the epub edition of the books here and here.

I haven't added the Kindle because we use the ASIN number Amazon assigns to the Kindle edition, not the ISBN. If you have the ASIN number, please post it here and we'll create the record. We can't use Amazon as a source for any book information, so we can't get this information directly. Thanks! :)

❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) I'm not sure what is happening, but I can guess. Did you apply for the author program before I added the book?

"Anonym" is a popular author name (see

We can't disambiguate single name authors, so the system doesn't have anyway to figure out which of those books are yours.

I'm certain there's a way around this, but I don't know what it is - hopefully Rivka will see this thread and chime in as she is the woman with the answers. :)

❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) I can't do anything to resolve this for you, unfortunately. Rivka will have to chime in with suggestions.

It might be possible to change your author name to _anonym - we can try it but I'm not sure how the system will take the non-alpha character. I just tried a sample search of _anonym and the search engine just dumped the _ off and gave results for anonym only.

Looking into it. Meanwhile, looks like your book is showing up properly now.

Huh. There are actually 3 Anonym profiles right now.

I asked a dev to take a look at this, but there's definitely something weird going on.

Ok, went with "_Anonym" for your profile, and your book should now be showing up there.

Groups you are a member of will show up on your profile whether author or not. There is no checkbox to remove that.

That's a caching thing, and should resolve in a day or so.
