Moon  (chanpreet) | 28 comments An author has requested help with getting a Godoreads Author Page set up. They have a pre-order on iTunes and the Amazon pre-order hasn't propagated yet.

This is their profile on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1...


Here is the pre-order link: https://books.apple.com/us/book/laven...

What does she need to do?

Emily | 13184 comments If they want to set up a second author page for their new name that's fine, but the book has to be on Goodreads first. Does it have an ISBN or ASIN? Is there a publisher's page anywhere? We can't use info from Apple books to create the book record.
Or, they can add it themselves. The author profile will be listed as H. Hunting with the period after the H.

Moon  (chanpreet) | 28 comments There is an ISBN and this is a small press/self published title.

And thank you! Should she wait to create the page until after the preorder on Amazon propagates?

Emily | 13184 comments The ebook edition and the Kindle edition will be separate. She does not have to wait until the Kindle edition is available. The preferred way to claim the page is for the book to already have an ISBN or some other evidence of its publication.

Perfect, thank you so much Emily!
