If the book already exists on Goodreads, please link to it, as well as to a non-bookseller source for the cover.

If it doesn't already exist in our database, we can help you add it.

OK. Just start by posting in this thread and say what the book title is and what your author name is. We will see if your book is on Goodreads.

Monique (Kadiya) | 1099 comments G.,

Let's start over, shall we? You want to add a cover image to your book. You are not a Librarian nor can I see that you have claimed your author profile, either of which would allow you to add the cover on your own. Absent this, a Librarian will need to do it for you.

Therefore, a Librarian will need to know what book to upload a cover image to and what image to upload. You will need to provide that information in order for a Librarian to do that, which is why both rivka (who works for GoodReads) and Banjomike requested that information.

To clarify your earlier question about a non-bookseller source for the cover image. We cannot use images from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, or another retailer of books. We can use images from the publisher.

Edit: The post I was responding to has apparently been deleted.

That is why I tend to quote the entire message in my responses. The reply button just adds the start of the message to your reply but I frequently paste the whole thing in. It is often a good idea to at least quote the specific parts of a message that you are responding to.

Also, I notice that the poster has deleted the original post as well.
