Michael Murray (michael_murray) | 10 comments The cover showing for Magnificent Britainwas only in use for a short time before I replaced it with the one shown here https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...
This edition of the book has a different ISBN to the original.
Would it be possible to change the cover?

Michael Murray (michael_murray) | 10 comments Could you tell me where to look to find out how to add an alternate cover edition then please.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Actually with a different isbn number, just add that isbn as another edition. The older edition has to stay (no isbn/asin or cover changes/overwrites) but you can set the new edition to be the primary (default/featured) edition that shows on your author page, in searches, etc.

You can add like adding any other book then combine with the older edition.

Or, if you prefer just ask and we'll do for you.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Looks like the kindle edition has new cover but kept the same asin number (please don't remove or change isbn/asin numbers on existing editions), so I think you are wanting an alternate cover edition for the kindle asin B007A4F71G, an ebook (nook edition) for bnid 2940044375185 and an ebook edition for isbn 9781301120321.

Not sure if you are wanting to learn how to do yourself or if you'd like us to just do for you. Just let us know.

Michael Murray (michael_murray) | 10 comments Yes those are the versions currently available. If you can do it for me that would be greatly appreciated.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) All the editions are there (still filling in some data bits). Authors can choose which edition is primary (shows first on author page, title searches, etc.); librarians can't choose for you.

Basically to choose primary edition, just click on edition wanted, "edit details" and midway down righthand side set as primary.

For more official directions, see Author FAQ #4 this group at http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... or help screens at http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/31... .
