message 1: by Cathryn (new)

Cathryn Chandler (vicki_c_lee) | 2 comments I just released a cozy mystery-- and would like to add it to my author page/dashboard etc... my pen name here is Cathryn Chandler, for the Cozy it's Cat Chandler. Can I link the two pen names, or what do I need to do to claim the book as mine? The book is titled: A Special Blend of Murder by Cat Chandler, and it is only on Amazon. URL: http://amzn.to/2s0dy4L

Will that series have always the same characters?

Cathryn Chandler (vicki_c_lee) | 2 comments Yes-- except for the victim and suspects... but the rest of the cast of characters will be recurring... Thank you for adding the author name-- I appreciate it.. does that mean my Cathryn Chandler author name can now claim the Cat Chandler book? I'm sorry-- I find some of this a bit confusing..

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments Are you keeping the books published under two different but similar names for reason?

If so then we should add the name Cat Chandler rather than Cathryn.

Yes there is if the author is specifically using different variants of a name to separate out genres of work
