I discovered today that I’m listed on Goodreads as an author. Well, sort of. A game book I wrote back in the mid-90s is listed there, and when you click my name, you’re taken to a list of books written by someone with my name, but ten of them aren’t me — they’re another author with whom I share my name.
So to clear things up, I contacted Goodreads to let them know I’m the author of the one, but not the others, and then I did something bold – I asked to be listed as a Goodreads Author. If they accept, then I’m going to start acting like an author there, and well, you know, actually write something.
I’m going to do it anyway, as I’ve been working on a couple of ideas in my head that I need to get notes for so I can actually look at the idea of, well, writing.
Even if they don’t accept me, it tickles me that I’m listed there and on Amazon.
