Noob question here.

Hi all, I've recently published my first novella on
lulu and I'm wanting it recognised on goodreads so I can set up an author profile there. It's not in Goodreads library yet and Goodreads is not recognizing the isbn when I try to add it. Advice?

    I was always under the impression that readers of books reviewed what they have read on Goodreads, so they are placed their 'manually.'  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goodreads#Book_discovery

    that is how books get on to it.

    Yup but When I tried to ad my book the isbn was not recognised. I think maybe I need to wait till my book appears on Amazon as jon suggested above.

    As soon as my book is published, I add it to Goodreads, well before it is available on Amazon. I have been doing this for years. You must add your book and select ebook, Kindle, paperback, hardback, etc... Obviously the Kindle book, I add later. Use the link from Lulu for ebook and paperback and it should upload. You can then add image for your book cover. I find the process straight forward and am puzzled why they don't recognise your isbn.
