Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Otis didn't address the question of uploading the ebooks for distribution from GR, but he did say:

"Basically, we encourage fan fiction in the stories & writing section - but it should remain there unless it is a long form piece of writing (ie like a book) and the author is intending to publish/self-publish it. If that is the case having an entry as a book would be ok." (emphasis added)

-- which, minus the question of having the ebook uploaded, would see to apply here.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Making the story freely available as an ebook can be counted as self-publishing.

Correct.

Correct. If Goodreads were asked to take the offending book down by the copyright holder, they would. Failing that, it generally stays.
