We are building up a database of Australian authors who are also Goodreads members. It gives you, the author, a chance to get to know each other if you haven't already met and it gives us (your avid reading public!) a chance to try some home grown talent. If you'd like to be added to the list please request in this thread.

Heads up - we list our authors by first name then surname.

PLEASE NOTE: Before you request to be added to the list we would like you to have an author's profile, which is part of the Goodreads author program. Instructions on how to go about getting this can be found at the link here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/program

Basically it will give you, the author, your own profile where you can add your own books, videos, blog entries "plus" be able to publicise upcoming events and add your author widget to your own website.

From the moderators point of view it will also help us to add you to the list, and the avid reading public will see all your details as soon as they click on the link.


The old request threads have been archived and can be found here:

Hi Phrynne,

I'm already on the Goodreads Authors list, but under a pen name (Tito Kithes Athano) because I've vanity-published an 'alternative history' series based on the Roman Republic.

My Real name is Bob Springett.
I live in Sydney.
born 1952
Male, married, two adult daughters.
Interests History, Theology, Science fiction
I often beta-read for free in those genres.

Brenda | 71125 comments Mod
Welcome Bob :) Because your author name is Tito, that's what it'll go by (because of the link) but Phrynne may be able to add your correct name afterwards.

Hi Tito/Bob!!!
Do you want me to list you as Bob Springer or Tito Kathanes? I can fix it so either name takes you back to your author page.

Hi Phrynne,

The short answer is 'neither'. My name is Bob Springett, not Bob Springer. LOL!

I would prefer 'Bob Springett', but whatever is easier for you.

Lol! Sorry. Just reading too fast - one of my foibles. Can be a good one , can also lead me into trouble.
Let's see what I can do anyway

Okay Bob. You are listed under Bob Springwood (just joking) Springett and the link takes you to your author page.

message 28: by Lance (new)

Lance Morcan Hi Phrynne - Not sure if I qualify for your list...
I'm a NZ-based Kiwi author/former resident of Australia who usually writes in collaboration with my Sydney-based son James. We co-authored the epic historical adventure White Spirit, an incredible true-life, wilderness adventure, which is set in 19th Century Australia. And I've just written and launched a short (fiction) story titled The Last Tasmanian Tiger, which I've added to the group's appropriate thread. Hope that's okay!
Cheers from NZ
Lance

Wonderful thanks Phrynne!
My thoughts go to those Aussies affected by the bushfires and smoke at present. We currently have our own problems over here on this side of the ditch, too. Seems like these are troubled times, eh?
