Ana Saiz (anasaiz) | 18 comments As per rivka instructions:

“We cannot merge the second profile into the first, as that name is on the book cover. Please start a new thread to discuss the options we do have in this sort of 2-name situation.”

The latest book I’ve participated in is an anthology. The publisher has taken my full legal name instead of my author name, so the book is associated to a profile that doesn’t belong to anyone.

This is the book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

And this is my author profile:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

What options do we have so the book appears in my profile?

Thanks!

We can make your author profile Ana Saiz García, as that includes Ana Saiz within it. Any books published later under Ana Saiz later would need to be moved to it, but just posting in this group can get that taken care of.

Alternatively, if you prefer to keep Ana Saiz as your profile name, we can just add that as an additional author on the anthology.

Ana Saiz (anasaiz) | 18 comments Thank you very much rivka. I would rather keep Ana Saiz as my profile name, as it is the name that appears on most of my publications. So could you add it to the book as author?

Thanks again!

Ana Saiz (anasaiz) | 18 comments Hello rivka

That has happened again with another anthology I have participated in:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

This book was previously associated to my profile, but it has disappeared and I don’t know why. Could you add me as an author here too, or should I open a new topic to ask for it?

Thank you very much.

That appears to be a magazine, which probably does not belong on Goodreads.

Ana Saiz (anasaiz) | 18 comments Hi rivka. No, it’s a book. Do you need any kind of information that demonstrates it?

ISBN would be helpful. Link to a listing on the publisher's site would be as well.

Ana Saiz (anasaiz) | 18 comments Thank you rivka, I’ll try and get it from the publisher
