1. Claiming Lives
2. Back from the Dead
3. Original Blood: Gailene's Vow.
4. Endless Sky
5. (add) Original Blood: Szejna's Revenge
Thanks you so much. Have a great holiday weekend!

Alexandra (alelin) | 35 comments I created alternate cover editions for 1 and 2 for now, I can do the rest later when I'm back home if no one else did it until then.

Alexandra (alelin) | 35 comments Ok, 1-4 all updated now.

Book 5 was already added twice, but one of the editions has no further information than title and language, so I guess it is probably a duplicate and should be deleted.

Could you please tell me if you only published the Kindle edition or if there is another edition of your book available?

Stuart Land (stuartland) | 27 comments Thank you, Alexandra! I didn't know you had done this, or I would have thanked you before. Am I supposed to get an email or something when you leave a message or update a file? I didn't see the changes until I clicked on each image from my dashboard, then saw the covers were in the row with the previous covers. However, they don't show up on my dashboard or home page. Only my older cover are still there. How do I get the new covers to show?

For Szejna's Revenge, only the Kindle is published so far because of a problem with Createspace. Do I need to do anything once the print version goes live?

Emy (emypt) | 5034 comments Stuart,

You can add the Paperback edition of book yourself: https://www.goodreads.com/book/new?au...

Once that is done, combine it with the Kindle edition (https://www.goodreads.com/book/combin...). If you aren't confident doing it yourself, just post back here and we can do it. Same goes for adding the book too :)

Stuart Land (stuartland) | 27 comments Hi Emy,

Thank you for the advice. I will try it.

The new book cover for Szejna's Revenges shows on my dashboard and profile page, but none of the updated covers do. My old covers are still there. How do I get the new covers to show?

by GR policy we don't allow the change of book covers unless the book isn't published yet and the cover wasn't used in ARCs. We can, however, make an Alternate Cover Edition using the new cover.

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85.... As the author, you will have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/31...

as what rivka had just posted, to change the default edition of your book, please refer to this link: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...


Nucking Futs the Fire Fairy Book-a-holic (firefairyholic) | 348 comments @alexandra what book are we referring to? Is the ACE edition combined with the old edition?


Nucking Futs the Fire Fairy Book-a-holic (firefairyholic) | 348 comments Yep. And the default edition will appear when someone searches for you or the book

You don't get an email by default, but there is a little box called "Email me when people reply" when you start a new topic or write a comment, so you can check this box if you want a notification.

How do I add an alternate cover?


Nucking Futs the Fire Fairy Book-a-holic (firefairyholic) | 348 comments Although GR members can create book entries, it would be better if you leave the adding of an alternate cover to the librarians.

B. Truly (brandytruly) | 8 comments Hello, my name is Brandy Truly. I have a book excerpt for Melanie's Evanescent Journey(Sonar The Crashing 1.2) that I need to exchange the cover photo. Can someone please put this cover instead of the one which is there now. I tried to delete the photo and do it myself, but it wouldn't let me. Thanks.
C:\Users\Cameron\Documents\COVER0001bcontrast2b.jpg

I just added this photo to my additional photos, because I was having trouble pasting it to this email. This is the photo I want to be my new cover photo. Please see if this link will allow you change my cover. Thanks
