Nelson A. Paguyo (paguyomd) | 3 comments Hello,
I am an author and I tried adding my book to GoodReads. My account was made by my previous publisher and I now have access to it. When adding my book, I forgot to upload the cover. Could someone update to include the cover? My next question is, am I able to update my Author's name? It does not have MD included, nor do the books that I have on my profile. If someone could help me out with this I would really appreciate it. My author name is accurate on the book in question. Thanks so much.

Goodreads does not use MD or any other Suffixes or Prefixes with author names.

The only suffixes used are those part of the actual name, such as Jr. or "III"

You can put your degrees and qualifications in your biography.

Cover added.
