Sheila (readersentertainment) | 5 comments What do we do when we come across a profile that appears to be a pirate site? I checked the links on the profile and it is a pirate site. But, what do I do about it being on Goodreads? It's a company listed on the profile, not a person. But how do I report this? https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

That's a valid publisher-as-author page, not a pirate site, but in the event you need to report something contacting support is your best option- https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta...

Scott | 21446 comments Mary, you need to contact GR support directly. Librarians cannot help with this.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Mary,
are you sure this wasn't just a click-bait?
The links seams to be to the sellers website, and your book don't even have an audiobook version.

Either way, I think it would be prudent to remove the name of the user from your post and keep it limited to private messages.

Scott | 21446 comments I have flagged the post so GR should take a look at it.
