Hi Constance. When I tried to edit, I got this message:

"Sorry, this author is on Goodreads and is responsible for editing their own data. If you see a typo or other error, then you may want to report it in the Goodreads Librarians Group."

You should be able to change your author name from your dashboard. Do that first, and if you then find you can't edit your books I will see if I can do it.

Regards,
Michael.(less)

Michael Logan is on page 209 of 528 of Child 44: Wasn't too taken by the beginning, and the prose rather poor, but the story and character interactions are now getting way more interesting. And either I've stopped noticing the clunky sentence structure or it has improved.

“Oh, those hateful sods will never make it to Heaven. They’re all on an express elevator to the gay spit-roast dungeon in Hell. Within five minutes of kicking the bucket, they’ll have demon balls swollen with fiery spunk slapping off their shapeless chins.”
