@Bobby, Facebook feeds can take a while and feedbak group is showing posts that scream "bug" to me; you can go back to your profile, under apps tab, and try re-adding books to your facebook timeline.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 2 comments Looking at series page looks like all but these three funky image files now added.

Third from bottom image (series book 13) http://img5.blogs.yahoo.co.jp/ybi/1/9... does not look like book cover?

shows as

Same for 4th (book 12) and 7th (book 9) from bottom image links.

(Book numbers taken from goodreads series order; all the broken links from yahoo.com site)

Can you repeat that with links and I will correct?

Book 13 (according to series order at goodreads; I speak very little Japanese) did not get image added because Image file link showed an orange x instead of bookcover. That's the same reason for 12 and 16 I think (I did not upload images to those two but apparently someone just did).

I put correct cover on book 9 and deleted invalid covers from books 12 and 16. Do you have links to the correct bookcovers for books 12, 13, and 16?

(Or is everyone else seeing bookcovers where I see the orange x? Looks to be all the yahoo.com links; I don't see an image link at all for Book 16 in original post)

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 2 comments Because you are the author, will do. Normally we don't delete that (instead add a librarian note that they are the same author).

I got the duplicate author off your book; but, looks like a super-librarian or staff has to delete the duplicate profile.

Actually, no. The book has the author's name in Arabic, and it stays. If the author wishes to also have his name listed in English (especially if he plans to publish an English edition, but even if not), that's perfectly fine. But we will not merge the profiles any more than we would for a non-GR member.

message 22: by Robert (new)

Robert Greene | 23 comments Hi, I tried to find a "non linked" book cover but this book is too new I guess. I'm a big fan of Ivana Murleau and this one is her funniest ever! Can someone try to find the book cover for "Bad Amateur Ebook Writer Romance Story ISBN 9781927124246"? Thanks

Did you try the publisher's website?

Lindy (LindyLee) | 8 comments Have I got this right??

I put a new book not already on Goodreads and then I ask here to have the cover added?

Sorry; I misunderstood Rame to be saying both were him.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 2 comments Back on message 12, am I the only one seeing an x in an orange background/circle instead of a bookcover? (Underneath the x are Japanese characters and some text denoting yahoo blog)

Just let us know which book and a non-bookseller link to bookcover image.

They ARE. That's not the issue.

message 31: by Freya (new)

Freya (FlameCat) | 4 comments Hi, could you please add a cover for this book please?

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/60...

Cover:

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=ye... (Not sure if I can use the images from Google Books)


message 32: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 32700 comments Mod
No, Google Books is not an acceptable site for images.


message 34: by Traveling Diva (last edited Dec 05, 2012 10:28AM) (new)

Traveling Diva (travelingdiva) | 372 comments #36 - The cover for the first one, Seth Speaks, is for a different edition. In fact it looks like the full work (rather than only just the first volume) so I did not add it. It shows on the publisher site as ISBN 978-1-878424-07-5 which is different than the edition you linked to. It also doesn't seem to be Korean.

Checking the rest...Third and fourth are from booksellers and we cannot use them.

I suspect the fifth is also a bookseller and not a publisher - is that correct?

message 39: by Koenraad (new)

Koenraad (koenraadkelemen) | 3493 comments #36 Based on the translated text of the 'About us' section of their website I should say Laguna is a publisher. It begins with:

'The publishing house Laguna was founded in April 1998. From humble beginnings with a few titles published in a year, we came to the production of over three hundred titles published annually...'

So I went ahead and added the cover.


message 40: by Lindy (new)

Lindy (LindyLee) | 8 comments Why hasnt' good reads made it easy for peopel to add thier own cover?


message 41: by Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) (last edited Dec 10, 2012 09:58AM) (new)

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 2 comments You should be able to add your own covers Lindy. Did you claim your author profile?

It is easy. Anyone can add a new book and add cover at that time.

If book has no cover, an author who claimed their author profile can add at any time or ask librarian to help.

Legally covers cannot be sourced from booksellers (exception, the publisher's website). Goodreads has set some policies because of that so sometimes the cover requests in this group take a bit to get to a link or file upload librarians can use. And sometimes we have to revoke a cover being added because came from bookseller or overwrote an existing cover.

If book has an existing cover is where some goodreads policies come into play. Existing, published covers cannot be overwritten (librarian can correct with a better quality file but not change unless clear was not really a bookcover or was never published).

When authors update covers at booksellers (amazon, Barnes and Noble, kobo, google play, etc.), they are updating the edition for sell. Goodreads ain't selling. So we don't have the same policies but ran into so many problems with covers trying to be altered by members/authors so used to editing their products elsewhere it was causing problems that made goodreads set some policies.

Goodreads lets members catalogue books and once a bookcover or an edition (even an out of print, cover-since-changed, or whatever edition) gets added to goodreads and potentially member bookshelves—it doesn't get messed with. Instead a new edition has to be made for a new or updated cover.

Authors wanting to make sure their updated covers are the primary/default/featured editions, need to set that edition as the primary edition. (Otherwise goodreads uses the most popular).

Janet (JanetNorcal) | 7 comments http://www.amazon.com/Crescent-Carniv... This is the cover on my copy of Crescent Carnival. Can you add it to goodreads please? I have the Pocket Books edition, July 1974. ISBN: 671-78729.2


Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 2 comments We aren't allowed to use images from amazon. Do you have a non-bookseller link?


message 44: by Janet (new)

Janet (JanetNorcal) | 7 comments Let me see what I can find! Could I take a picture of the ancient cover I have (I couldn't find a cover elsewhere, which was disappointing).


message 45: by Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) (last edited Dec 10, 2012 07:06PM) (new)

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 2 comments [Edited] A picture or scan of your own book is very acceptable. If you click your own thumbnail photo and underneath the thumbnail choose "more photos" "and it will let you add more photos.

Once uploaded to your photos, let us know and we'll add to the book.

(Once we add to book, you can delete photo.)


message 46: by Janet (new)

Janet (JanetNorcal) | 7 comments Sounds good.


Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 2 comments Duh...I need to correct my how-to's - instead of "edit profile" under your thumbnail photo, choose "more photos"
