Roberta Pellant | 5 comments I am listed on Amazon as a author of a book, but not listed as an author on Goodreads. Please add me so that I can create an author page. Please VERIFY me.

lethe | 13747 comments Two editions of the book were added here: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

You are not mentioned on the cover. What was your contribution?

If you were one of "the readers of Budget Travel Magazine", I don't think that is enough to warrant an author page on Goodreads.

Roberta Pellant | 5 comments No, It was a book. The Smart Traveler's Passport. I was a contributing author. You can see on my Amazon Author page and I can also send you the link on Google Books where I am listed.

lethe | 13747 comments As I said, according to Worldcat the contributors to the book are "the readers of Budget Travel Magazine". This IMO is not enough to warrant an author page on Goodreads.

Roberta Pellant | 5 comments Ok, thank you for your response. Do you support thesis or dissertation authors?

SOME dissertations and theses that have been published, either as a physical book or on a database like ProQuest, would count as books on Goodreads. We would need a link to it to add it to the database.

Both of those appear to have only a handful of printed copies, only available in the respective colleges' libraries. That would not qualify as published.

(ProQuest has some published theses from St. Mary's, but does not seem to have yours.)
