message 1: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Taylor (rebeccataylor) | 8 comments Hello! My book, Her Perfect Life, is releasing from Sourcebooks Landmark in June, 2020. The book is already up on Goodreads here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... AND it is correctly connected to my author profile.

The problem is that it doesn't show up when users are searching for it in the search box. I've had several people tell me they are unable to find my book on Goodreads as a result.

Is there anyway to fix this? Thank you for your time!

You can always search by ISBN or ASIN if there is one.

Thank you for the reply. But my book has been listed on Goodreads for months now.
