How to Become a Goodreads Author

Some of my fellow indie authors have found the process for becoming a Goodreads Author a bit obscure.  I thought it might be handy to write out the process in what I think is its simplest form:

1. Become a Goodreads member, if you aren’t already

2. Search for one of your titles

3. If your book isn’t on Goodreads, click the button at the bottom of the search results page… the one that says, “Still can’t find the book?  Add a new record”

4. Once your book is on Goodreads, search for yourself as an author

5. At the bottom of the basic author profile page for you, there should be a link that says, “Is this you?”  Click that and request approval.

Hope that helps!
