message 1: by Darrell (new)

Darrell Newton (darrellnewton) | 5 comments I have switched from my pen name (Justin Tyme) to my real name (Darrell Newton). Amazon now has this book listed under Darrell Newton. I would like to either move them from the Justin Tyme profile or create a new book (same ASIN) under my Darrell Newton profile. Is this possible?

I will repeat this process for other books under my old Pen Name.

Reference:
Justin Tyme profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
Darrell Newton profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Thank you in advance.
Darrell

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....

As far as publishing books under more than one name, please see: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4...
In some cases, a book may be originally published under a pen name, but then later reissued under the author's original name. When this happens, the author listed for any and all editions should be the author name the book was originally published under - so the reissued edition would need its primary author name changed to the originally published pen name, with the additional name added as secondary for all editions with it on the cover. Doing this will allow the various editions to be combined.


New edition added here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

As the author, you have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

(Note: You will need to be logged in as the original author name to do this.)
