Well, I got listed at good reads but it wasn't me. Another writer, who shares my first and last name has one of my e-books listed under his books.
I just went looking to find out if anyone has read one of my 3 e-books from Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing and did a Google Search only to find that another Anthony Davis exists who has a good reads account, lists my e-book, 1000 Tomorrows, as among his over 30 other books.
I also found my e-book listed with two other ones I self-published at Amazon and they were published by A.P. Davis, that's me, but given that the author's name is Anthony Davis, not Tony Davis or Anthony P. Davis, for some reason, good-reads got it mixed up and added my 1000 Tomorrows to the list of books another Anthony Davis wrote.
It's hard to get a book published that neither has basically the same title as another book already published and listed and been on the market for many years as it is to find an author with your name, but then I did not include my middle initial. So I did try to communicate this issue to the people at good reads and hopefully they will remove my 1000 Tomorrows from that other Anthony Davis' list of books he wrote. He actually wrote some interesting books but I bet he don't know one of my books is among his list and it will be best for both myself and the other author of a similar name as my own to have that reference to 1000 Tomorrows removed from his profile page at good reads.
And then I looked up A Thousand Tomorrows and looks like that book was written a while back and has sold many copies. So far, I have sold only one copy of my e-book and none of those 2 other ones. Oh well, it's like that. I am at least listed as among the first 1 million or so authors at Kindle Direct Publishing, and that's better than not being on that list at all.
It is fun to write and get a book published, but it is best to first make sure with the people who you publish through, like in my case, Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, that both my name is given as the author by providing either a pseudo name or a variation of my name like Tony Davis so it won't get confused by others searching for a book to read and perhaps I need to make sure my titles are exactly original and not even listed in a Google search. I might have to start naming books' titles by acronyms and symbols and abbreviate my own name so that way no body will have a problem finding it. Or that might make it even harder to find. Hmm.
