Author Profile, Author Dashboard, and Widgets
All members of Goodreads have regular reader profiles where they can review books, add friends, and post information about themselves. When an author signs up for Goodreads, he or she begins with this basic user profile.
For any book listed in the Goodreads catalog, you can click on the author’s name to find the author profile. This page lists all of the author’s published work, whether he or she is a member of Goodreads or not. When an author joins the Author Program his or her user profile will be merged with the author profile. Becoming a Goodreads Author carries special privileges, such as the ability to
- edit profile information,
- add book cover images,
- write a blog,
- list quotes that you like
- upload your videos,
- promote events, book launches, book signings,
- and start featured author groups.
