Anna | 10 comments Would you add me please to your authors' list, Mandy.

Anna Jacobs (who also used to write as Shannah Jay), 50 novels published and still counting.

http://www.annajacobs.com

I find it very difficult to find myself as an author on Goodreads. If anyone can give me a useful URL, I'd be grateful. I find the Author program/dashboard immensely confusing. I can write novels, but oooh, technology sometimes 'bamfoozles' me.

Hi Anna,

Is this the URL you're looking for: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/237098.Anna_Jacobs?

From there you should be able to edit your profile data etc.

Cheers
Vicki

Kevin Klehr (goodreadscomkevink) | 78 comments Mandy, you are such a busy and passionate person with this site. I've just magically been given author status as well, even though I have only one book.

Although I haven't had much time on the web in the past week, I am enjoying my brief visits to the Goodreads site.

Thanks for going to the trouble of doing this for us.

Regards - Monya Mary

Monya (monyamary) Whoops, I don't have a website - oldish and technologically challenged. But I do have a blog - not added to often enough. Old = Slow.

Thanks for that link Dean. I love the way some authors now have a 'soundtrack' they listened to and received inspiration from as they were writing their books.

Jenny do you have a Goodreads author page?


message 35: by Lillian (new)

Lillian Grant (lilliangrant) Hey Mandy

I don't have a picture of me because I'm incognito. Lillian is my pen name. I work in a very uptight profession so I like to keep my identity as a published erotic romance author a secret. :)

Jenny wrote: "Not quite sure how to go about getting a GR authors' page, Mandy."

Mark gave instructions in another thread. I will try and find it for you.


message 39: by Mandapanda (last edited Sep 30, 2010 11:45PM) (new)

Mandapanda Jenny wrote: "Not quite sure how to go about getting a GR authors' page, Mandy."

To get a page you just have to add your published book(s) to Goodreads. You need librarian status to add a book, but that is easy to get. Follow this link: http://www.goodreads.com/about/apply_...
If you are uncertain about adding your book just send me a private email with a link to the book's info on the web (e.g. publisher page or your personal website) and I can do it for you.

Once you add your book an author page is automatically created!

Jenny, follow this link and it will tell you how to use your goodreads author page.

Hope this helps.:)

Although I am an Oz by choice, naturalised in '85, am I acceptable as an Oz author if the subject of my novel has nothing to do with Australia ?
If I am allowed to join put me down with this link www.geoffwoodland.com for Ice King.

Thanks for adding Ice King to the book shelf. :-o)

Nice to meet you Lia! Your book The Fortunes of Ruby White looks really fascinating. I put it under general fiction in our group bookshelf but it looks like it might have aspects of a thriller or maybe even some romance in it as well.:)

Yes of course Geoff! We all migrated here at some point or another. I'll add your name with pleasure.:)

P.S. I usually just add the link to your Goodreads page. Are you intending to add your website and bio etc to your GR page?


message 50: by Geoff (new)

Geoff Woodland | 313 comments Sorry, didn't realise - the link to Ice King is on my web site, which is on my Goodread profile.
