Chloe Garner (chloegarner) | 2 comments I write under three different pen names, but all three are linked to the same identity in my other social platforms. When I check for whether I can link them here, the notice says that you guys are working on it - which I appreciate. Do you have any idea when it might be possible to have multiple author names on a single account, or how you might notify authors when it does become possible?

rivka | 562 comments Jamie, while it's not currently possible to link all pen-names in a single author account, we can add your claimed name as a secondary author on your other pen-names' books if you want. That will cause all the books to show up on the single author profile (as well as the ones for the names they were published under).

Alternately, or in addition, you can link to the other profiles in your claimed profile's bio section.

Rivka, may I just clarify something. I write under two very slightly different names. One uses a full first name the other uses initials. Nevertheless, the surname is identical. I asked about having the books showing the initialed name added to my full name Gooreads page. I was told no because the author name has to be identical to the account name. Has this changed?

I have added the second name to the account page but really would like to have the books also displayed.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this.

Tanya Robinson. I have books published under both.

rivka | 562 comments We have more than one author by that name. Is this you? https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Or this? https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

My apologies. I should have said. I am the first link. The one with the photograph of roses as my profile.

Thank you for your help. My primary concern is to have my latest books 'Tears of Innocence' and 'Negative Beauty' (both authored as T. R. Robinson) to also show up on the Tanya Robinson profile.

Rivka,

I've reached the point where I am going to need to do this. I have released new covers for my Chloe Garner novels and need to push through the updated versions here. Can you help me get this untangled? Thanks.
