Hi Prash, I would suggest posting either in the Author's Corner or the if the book is on sale right now in Books on Discount. Thanks!

message 25: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Hatt | 20 comments I wonder if anyone can help me. I have two books available, but only one (A Light in the Darkness) is on my author profile, yet the second book (Maps, Legends and Misdemeanours) is on Goodreads. Being a computer dunce, I cannot work out how to get it on. Apparently, it's supposed to appear automatically, but doesn't. I would most appreciate any help. Many thanks.

I've had my book appear under another author's name and I've had to contact Goodreads for help. They might take a few days to get back to you, but I've found the Goodreads staff to be very helpful.


message 27: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Hatt | 20 comments Many thanks, Katharine. I shall do that right away. Who is the best person to ask? I've tried finding a contact, but thus far have failed.

At the very bottom of this page, you can click on "author program" then choose "contact" from the right side of that page, and fill out the form. Best of luck.

It looks like your author name is different on your books. The author name on Maps, Legends and Misdemeanours is MR Kevin E Hatt...This is something I can fix for you if you'd like. Is everything else on the book's page correct?

Hi, Sheri. It looks like there is no full stop on the E. Ordinarily it's Kevin E. Hatt, rather than E Hatt. Also, it should be Haszard#2. I also noticed that one of the titles has a full stop after Maps - whereas it should be a comma. I thank you very much for getting back to me, and wish you well.

P.S. Title is A Beautiful Glittering Lie

message 38: by Jo (new)

Jo Carter Hey everyone

Just have a query about where to post something. I'm starting up a quarterly newsletter for my author website and I'm wanting to advertise for people to be featured in my Bookshelf Zoom article. Here's a mockup I did of myself. http://s10196.p20.sites.pressdns.com/...
I'm hoping to get a new reader every quarter and I'm wondering where I should post this.

Thanks :)
Jo

Sheri | 6243 comments Mod
Hi Jo, I thing the best place to post it would be in the Author's Corner, but the Blogs folder would work for that as well.

Nancy Paniagua | 1 comments Hello Everyone,

I'm writing from rainy soon to be snowy Cleveland OH. I've just started my venture into the Publishing world and am currently working with Cedar Grove Publishing as an acquisitions and marketing manager. Our main focus is on the multicultural children and YA market (which is underrepresented) So far I am enjoying the experience of this new venture, and as I searched GR for groups I came across this group, and I feel I will be learning a lot from all of you! We are currently in the midst of a Giveaway for a new book coming out next year SYCORAX's DAUGHTERS... Well I look forward to getting to know all of you. Good Luck!


message 45: by Douglas (new)

Douglas Rutnarak | 3 comments Hey guys!

I'm new to Goodreads and this is my first group! I like to share my self-published book. It teaches teenagers the fundamentals of Negligence Law and how to follow them. This includes what happens when your adolescent publish a defaming tweet (libel) or flying a drone above your neighbor's house (trespassing). The book is composed of quirky illustrations that will make any teen and his or her parent laugh.

Please check it out at www.tooninbooks.com.

I would love suggestions on how to get this book more well known in the indie world!

Thank you so much.

message 50: by F. (new)

F. Foster (fstephen) I've been on Goodreads and a member of this group since at least 2014, but under a business-related identity. Now I'm back as a new author. I went first to your "Giveaways > Holding a Giveaway" links. The oldest link there is from 2011, the newest from July of 2019. Again, this is a giveaways page. These antiquities suggest that the subgroup is cluttered with giveaways that cannot be meaningful to anyone, not even to the givers. Would there be reasonable value in deleting the clutter and starting anew? Perhaps a good sweeping would increase the value to readers and writers.
And yes, I do realize that I can quickly get to the newest entries.
Enjoy your day,
Steve
