Anthology Authors more than 10 names

Our latest anthology has 16 authors. How can we list them so they can all claim the book and their pen names? Doubling up in the first/last names slots creates new pen names and doesn't work. Please tell me how to fix this problem.

Under 'contributors' click "add' select "author" and enter each as an author. As far as I know you can add as many authors as you want.

Hubbard's Writers of the Future anthologies (there are at least 30 of them) are linked to the author pages of the author of each story. They don't all show up on the product page, just the first two or three, and after those it says "25 more" or "30 more" and you click those words and a box opens up with links to all the author pages. So, clearly it can be done. I agree with the other poster that it's probably just a matter of entering each one In the Contributors box and then clicking the Add Another button right below button that lets you choose Author, Editor, Illustrator, etc. Just keep adding another. I have never published a book by more than one author so I have no personal experience, but from looking at the data entry page, I'm pretty sure that's how it's done.

Not sure - I've been involved with something like this and I can recall it not being that easy. Author may need to contact support (maybe via author central) and ask to be added.

It seems super-easy to me. I tested it out on one of my draft books and it worked fine.

I'd like to see your Author Page, Ms. Veinglory.

The name I am using is my pen name, so it's not difficult. But I tested this on a draft, it is not visible on Amazon.

Im having this same issue. My anthology has 12 contributors. How do I add more than 10 names?

I appreciate the answer, but that is not an option in KDP. Once you reach 10 contributors, the "Add more" option no longer presents itself.

Funnily enough, I see this thread immediately following an old thread which contains the solution:

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)

Good luck! -- NJ
