Simone Noelle (Simone_Noelle) | 3 comments Hello all,

I'm a bit confused on how I can turn my Goodreads profile into an Author Profile. I have been self-publishing on Amazon. Does a Librarian in this group need to upload my titles for me into Good Reads?

Thank you,
Simone Noelle

You can either add them yourself or ask here and one of the librarians would add them for you.

The only restriction is we can't legally use Amazon (or any other bookseller) data.

So instead what needs to be done is for you to fill out the following in a topic (in this case the current topic would be fine):

* Title
* Author(s) name(s)
* ISBN (or ASIN)
* Publisher
* Publication date
* Format
* Description
* Link to cover on a NON-BOOKSELLER site, such as a publisher site, an author site, etc. No Amazon, B&N, or other bookseller links can be used as sources for covers or other book data.
