Some things to know, in no particular order, but all are important:

1. Goodreads naming conventions require that authors with initials have a period after each initial and no space between initials. So the author profile for your new pseudonym is: K.G. Sadler. It is here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

2. Ownership of new profile:
***a. You can contact Goodreads support to move your claimed profile to this name. To do that, use this link: https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta...
***b. You can use a different email address to claim the new profile.
One email address/GR login may have only one claimed profile.

3. It is Goodreads policy to keep the original author of a work as the primary author for that work. If you re-issue a work with a new author name, that author becomes the secondary author. As the primary author Goodreads Author, you can set the new edition as the default edition to show up on searches and on your author page. ONLY the primary author can set the default edition, so that must be done from the original author's profile for the works already published. Instructions: https://help.goodreads.com/s/article/...

4. If you need to have an Alternate Cover Edition [ACE]created for a work in the future, please contact this group to do so. Changing valid data for existing editions, even if they are out of print is against Goodreads policy, and is vandalism of the database. You can put a note in the descriptions stating the republished author's name, similar to the method used originally in your description, but the other way around.

5. If you have an ebook that is only published on Amazon, then do not make a separate ebook edition. Amazon ebooks are designated as Kindle editions, and use the ASIN. Do not use the ASIN for a print edition, but use the ISBN.

6. I have moved your books to your primary profile, and added the pseudonym as the secondary author and made ACEs for all 20 of the books you have listed. I deleted a few stray duplicates and corrected/updated your series.

If you have any questions, please advise.
