I want to change the author name on my books on Goodreads. The process is already completed on Amazon but I would like to keep the contacts I have already made and change my author name. I've tried to do this myself, and also applied for Librarianship which has been declined for some reason. If anyone can help me with this I would be very grateful. I feel that I can't move on until this is done. I have a number of novels I wish to change not just the one listed above.
Thank you in anticipation

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments You can't just change a name on your profile as this would change the author name on the existing editions, and this is against GR policy.
In this case you will have a new editions added with the new author name.
If the books were previously published under 'old' name, this will stay as a primary author for all editions, and the 'new' name will be added as a secondary author.
Please see:

For the books republished with the same ASIN/ISBN alternate cover editions would need to be created.
Please see:

You'll be able to claim a second author profile if you wish, but this would require you to use different e-mail address.
