J.E. Van Loke (jevanloke) | 3 comments I joined the author program and added my book Courage Passion Wisdom and Grace. I went in to edit the description and it tells me I only have permission to edit metadata.
Please help me find where the disconnect is. I know I should be able to edit the books profile but I am new at this and a little confused.

Thank you!
Jon

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments You have not yet been added to the author programme,

if you had then the author profile would have good reads author on it

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

When did you apply? it can take a while depending on number of requests for it to be approved

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments If you post what you want in the description someone will change it for you

J.E. Van Loke (jevanloke) | 3 comments Thank you for the quick reply Paula.

I thought I was already added. How do I tell if I am or not?

I applied about a week ago.

Thanks again!

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments A claimed author profile looks like this one

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

The profile you claimed does not as yet - once GR approve the request yours will have the same Good Reads Author on it.

A week or more is not unusual

Did you use the link below to request the approval?

J.E. Van Loke (jevanloke) | 3 comments Yes. That is the page I submitted.

Again, thank you so much, Paula, for clearing that up for me.

Very Grateful! Hope you have a wonderful day (or night) depending on where you are!

Jon

Sima, someone else added cover to your book. :)

You have an author profile on GR now. You can claim it by following this link. It may take a couple of weeks to get added and once done, your user profile would be merged with the author profile.

From next time, please start a new thread as this is linked to another book.
