J. Thomas-Like | 1 comments I recently got divorced and changed all of my book covers to reflect the new author name. I would like my goodreads profile to reflect this as well. I was previously known as J. Thomas-Like with the following titles: The Widow and the Rock Star, The Widow and the Orphan, and The Widow and the Will. My new author name is J.A. Thomas.

I also recently published two more nonfiction books under my new name of J.A. Thomas. Please feel free to contact me at if you have any questions or need anything more from me. Thank you!

Empress (the_empress) I would suggest that you remove your email from your post to prevent data mining bot from grabbing it and spamming you :)

Librarians do not work for Goodreads (confusing, I know!), so we wouldn't use an email to contact you anyway.

We will need to use both author names to manage this. All books that have been initially published under J. Thomas-Like will have to have that as a primary name still, but the new editions will have your updated name as well. Which means ..... you can have two author profiles! Hurraayy! You can claim the new one from this link. Or you can swap them, but I suggest that you contact Goodreads directly so that they can transfer your followers as well. Their email is support at goodreads dot com.

Here are your new editions:

See how to set up a default edition here.

A question: Is this large print edition?

please note your update name has TWO spaces between J.A. and Thomas.
