Update Your Author Profile at Good Reads

2677v1 max 450x450 Update Your Author Profile at Good Reads

Visit www.goodreads.com and update your author information. Do a search for your name and you will likely see a “blank” photo where your photo should be. Below it is a link to “email us if you are the author” and then they quickly set up an account for you to log in to. (They responded to my request in less than a couple of hours.) This web site seems to get their “feed” from Amazon. Good Reads describes itself as “A place where you can see what your friends are reading and vice versa. You can create ‘bookshelves’ to organize what you’ve read (or want to read). You can comment on each other’s reviews. And on this journey with your friends you can explore new territory, gather information, and expand your mind.”

This web site reminds me of a very small Amazon book site, with the ability to add reviews, see other people’s reviews, etc. An author can add articles, news, comments, book excerpts, reviews, etc. so it’s worth taking twenty minutes to set up all of the information on your book. I found this web site while doing a search on my own name and a topic I’d been writing articles on. Though their Alexa traffic ranking is just 12,803, if I found my own author profile on this web site without even looking for it, others will too and it’s important to always have your photo, contact information and additional reviews about your book wherever it can be found.
