Katharine Sadler | 19 comments Hi,
I'm changing my author name on all of my fantasy books (19 in total), and I've changed the covers on Amazon. I need to be able to change them on Goodreads. Is there a way I can upload the images from my computer to the site myself?

These are the books I need to change:

Thank you,
Katharine/ K. G. Sadler

lethe | 13731 comments All books first published under Katharine Sadler need to keep that name as primary author, so all name changes need to be reverted.

Covers on existing editions may not be replaced. Alternative-cover editions need to be created for the new covers.

I'm moving several books from the default Katharine Sadler profile that appear to be yours. I noticed that you have several ebook editions with no publication information. Are your ebooks available on platforms other than Amazon?

Thank you so much for moving everything and putting the correct covers with them. I really appreciate it!

Currently, all my fantasy books, except Dying Dreams are available only at Amazon. The Reapers Series has been available at other sites at other times. I will go in and update what information I see that is missing.

I have created a second goodreads account for my pen name, K. G. Sadler. Is there a way that I can move the books over to that name and be set up as an author under K. G. Sadler?

Thank you,
Katharine

Goodreads standards require that initials have a period after the initial and no space.

Is this new author account a Goodreads account? Because the original K. G. Sadler author name has been corrected to meet Goodreads standards.

Thank you! I wasn't aware of that rule. I just went in and edited my account to reflect that. I now have an account called K.G. Sadler. Is there a way for me to move the books over or is that something only a librarian can do?

Thank you so much for all your help!
Katharine
