Molly Billygoat (mollybillygoat) | 9 comments Hi! I have just manually added my newly-published book, A Dreadful Daughter's Spells, to Goodreads successfully.

I'm not sure, however, to claim this book as my own. My username on this site is Molly Billygoat (my online pseudonym), but the book is published under both my real name (Leah Broadby) and Molly Billygoat. Strange it may seem, but I have my reasons!

Upon trying to figure this out, I was directed to this group. I hope someone can help me. :)

Here is the link to my book on Goodreads:

Here is the link to my book on Amazon - it is both a paperback and ebook:

Thanks in advance!
Leah Broadby/Molly Billygoat.

I recommend that you read these:

Multiple Pen Names:

Goodreads Author Program:

Betsy | 583 comments I corrected the cover so it's the actual cover image, not just the cover art.

Molly Billygoat (mollybillygoat) | 9 comments Wow, thanks Betsy! I wasn't sure how to do that. I've been on Goodreads for awhile, but only recently became active so I'm a real newbie. It is a great resource for writers and book-lovers. I'll check out the above links - thank you Liz. You guys are really helpful. :)

Molly Billygoat (mollybillygoat) | 9 comments I'm so glad to have found this site. I must recommend it to all writers/readers! I contacted support, as the directions suggested, for trying to get any books I publish to appear under one common name. I'll see how that goes. Thanks again. I look forward to getting more involved. :)
