Hi Ottilie, yeah it's weird and yes, I've had an Amazon Author Central account (using the same webbiegrrlwriter email address I used here for this userID) since January of 2011 i think. I actually had to go log into my Author Central profile and click on the Book Extras tab to make the changes I'd just completed here on the Shelfari Web site propagate through to both my Author Central page and my book's page. It all shows up in Kindle now so I know my Author Central account is, in fact, linked to this Shelfari account....just not sure how to get it to be an author account (or to merge accts)
I'm pretty sure you're thinking of the Goodreads Author profile. They do that approval thing for us Indies. I wish they didn't, seems discriminatory but it's fine. So long as you have a book on Kindle or Smashwords or somewhere "valid" they approve you lickety split. Or they did for me last year.
I'll be posting to the Creative Reviews group and tweeting so I'm sure you'll see it :) Plus I'll have to be sure to tag it "Book Extras" and "Shelfari" so you can always just use the tag cloud to find the 2 posts. Thanks for following back :) L8R
Hi Ottille Glad to find you here--and even more glad to find your account is an AUTHOR account (unlike myself and Cambria who both seem to have created regular user accounts using our Amazon logins...not sure how or why) :-( I'm trying to figure out how to merge my author account (http://www.shelfari.com/authors/a3524357/Sarah-R-Yoffa/) with this fleshed out user level one (http://www.shelfari.com/webbiegrrl). Do you know how to convert it? Or did you just do it right the first time? (LOL)
BTW I'm doing a 2-part blog on Shelfari and how Book Bloggers and Authors can symbiotically benefit from working together (or that's part 2 anyway) Check for it next Tuesday. Until then, cya on Twitter...maybe (under the flood of 150 tweets per minute) Yeah, maybe not.
Hello Ottilie, I am also a writer. I wrote a book called A Phoenix Dream. I am now going to check out your books on Amazon. I like meeting new Authors and always encourage people to write....
By the way I just have to say your really cute! I'm not hitting on you or anything just saying.......
