Sonia (secretbean) | 5 comments Please would someone help me add some books to my author page? I'm the graphic designer and created the covers of these books, so my credit isn't always obvious.

Sonia (secretbean) | 5 comments I also realized that my author page is not linked to my profile page. Am not sure how to change that, but just in case you need both, here is my author page: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
and here is my profile page:
https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1...

Thank you!

Maryana | 2 comments Added your name as "Cover Artist". Now both books appear on your author profile.

If you would like to claim your author profile, which would merge with your personal profile page, click the "Is this you? Let us know" link at the bottom of the page:

Sonia (secretbean) | 5 comments Thank you very much for your prompt help, Mar'yana!

(On "The Bounce" I am also a co-author of the book itself. I'm also the graphic designer on all of the books I've worked on.)

Thank you for the tip about my author page. I have clicked on and filled out the "Is this you" link, so is that all I have to do?

Goodreads policy is not to list cover artists as secondary authors. (See https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...)

Book records edited accordingly.

Sonia (secretbean) | 5 comments Thank you for responding, Rivka.

That makes sense (not putting a cover artist as an author), but as well as the covers I designed the books, and at least on a few of them I'm listed as a co-author along with the artists (since they are graphic novels and so the visual presentation of them is an integral part of the reading experience).

Cover designers are also not listed as secondary authors, regardless of genre.

If there are any books where you wrote some of the text, or contributed some or all of the internal illustrations, those would be fine.

Sonia (secretbean) | 5 comments Sorry, I wasn't clear. Yes, I contributed internal illustrations.

As the graphic designer I created all of the interstitial page art, the art on the cover, the art on some of the internal cover galleries, as well as double page art at the beginning and end each chapter.
