Getting an API key

  1. Login to Goodreads and visit their API Keys page.
  2. Enter Novelist as the application name and your blog name as the “Company” (though ultimately these details do not matter—they can be anything).
  3. Leave the other fields (application URL, callback URL, and support URL) blank.
  4. Click Update App Info to save your settings.
  5. Your API key will then be shown on the page. You want to copy the API key value and paste that into the Novelist settings. You do not need the secret.
