Still need help!

Last night when I did this, just a blank cover is all I ever saw as my book. Today, I see there is a picture.

However, the picture needs to be changed.

We used Lulu during the editing process of the interior. And are using Createspace as the POD provider.

Lulu was never finalized, Createspace was with the current cover used on Amazon until the graphics arts are compete.

Hayleypublishing.yolasite.com link will take you to createspace.

I'd like to get the current cover on Goodreads.

Thanks...!

Next issue, when I tried to claim it as mine (not sure if that's the correct terminology) it brought up "The Gangerwads" book, also by Carl Lee, but not this Carl Lee.

With no options to get rid of any incorrect books, (actually might be author in this case,) my book is now listed on the wrong Carl Lee's profile on GR


message 10: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments I have created a separate Carl Lee author profile

Use this link to claim it

http://www.goodreads.com/author/confi...

Your author profile will be Carl^^Lee (where ^=space). Make sure when adding books there are two spaces between your names.

It is better for you to have the two space profile, as that way the automatic imports will not assign books by different authors with the same name to your profile

Works for me. Thanks again!

Carl Lee (carllee2850) | 22 comments This is my new Author page: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

Earlier today, the book cover was correct. Now it is not.

So, we repeat the third post in this thread...

We used Lulu during the editing process of the interior. And are using Createspace as the POD provider.

Lulu was never finalized, Createspace was with the current cover used on Amazon until the graphics arts are compete.

Hayleypublishing.yolasite.com link will take you to createspace. (but it also has the current picture.)

I'd like to get the current cover back on Goodreads.

Carl Lee (carllee2850) | 22 comments One more little thing...

My book, shows up on this author's profile as well: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

You should remove it from there.


message 14: by Carl (last edited Mar 21, 2013 12:28AM) (new)

Carl Lee (carllee2850) | 22 comments Looks like it's all better now.

Now I've got to figure out how to use the Author page. Any suggestions to get me started on the right path. I seem to pick the wrong ones frequently. lol

Like maybe a suggested to do list.

Thanks for all the help.

Emy (emypt) | 5029 comments #13 done

And the GR Author group is probably a good place to start: http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/3...

Thanks Emy...!

This "The Gangerwads" book thingy is an elusive thing for you guys. Now it’s appeared on my Profile.

Fixed.


message 18: by Carl (new)

Carl Lee (carllee2850) | 22 comments rivka wrote: "Fixed."

The Author page is good. I'm thinking there's not one place there's a copy of my cover and it links to me everywhere I am.

Now, on first profile, (reader profile), again, only "The Gangerwads" is there.

Thanks for all your fixes. Praying there's no more, as I'm sure it's getting old for you.

This is the other Carl Lee's profile. My book was on it a few days ago. But that was fixed.

http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

This is my Author profile, and it's your post # 17 fixed. (thank you)

Before, when I clicked the home page (called this my reader profile) there is a view of the cover in the upper right hand corner. When I posted # 18, it had "The Gangerwads" front cover.

This morning when I viewed, it had the correct cover. (Actually thought you fixed it without leaving a reply "fixed")

So I'm looking good, thanks again for all the help.

Hey Daniel,

It's fine with me, because I think I'm done with this thread anyway, but to avoid confusion, I believe you're suppose to start a new thread for every add request.

Good Luck

CL

lafon حمزة نوفل (lafon) | 3557 comments Carl is right, in that a new topic is less confusing. That being said, Daniel your book is here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...

And you can claim your author profile here: http://www.goodreads.com/author/confi...
