Goodreads Author Emergency!


If you are an author with books listed on Goodreads, quick, go peek at them to make sure they aren’t “Lost”!

Barnes & Noble is in a snit with Amazon and Goodreads has taken sides. Now we, the authors, are caught in the middle! All Amazon credentials are now VOID on Goodreads.

You have to manually “recover” your books to see them. You need to be able to supply ISBNs or ASNs for each book manually. Ebook versions are separate from print versions, so you have to “recover” both. You can’t use the information on Amazon, either. CreateSpace does work, but you can’t post the link to Amazon to reactivate your book. Even then, I couldn’t figure out how to get my cover images back. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks a heap, Goodreads! Way to act mature!

    You tell them Kate!

  2. I’m surprised they took a side, but it is a big issue and everyone is falling on one side and there is a lot of pressure to pick a side.
    It’s like Red Sox vs. Yankees. The most offensive choice is to have no choice at all.
