I'd like to change them and have it set as default. Would someone be able to help me please?

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Cindy, it looks like you have multiple editions of some of these books available. We can make alternate cover editions for each existing edition and then you will be able to set one as default. Which editions are getting the new covers?


message 3: by Nashoda (new)

Nashoda Rose | 54 comments I don't know why there are so many editions. I changed the covers that's it, but they are listing numerous editions. Not sure why that happens, it's the same book just new covers.


message 4: by Scott (new)

Scott | 18622 comments That's what GR considers a new edition.


message 5: by Nashoda (new)

Nashoda Rose | 54 comments Oh, huh. Okay, well these new covers are the main cover for them all. Thank you Scott and Cait.


message 6: by Scott (new)

Scott | 18622 comments It's because GR doesn't have the capability to allow multiple covers for an edition, and we like to shelve the one we own or read. (Think of all the perennial classics that have gone through countless cover designs and artists; everyone has a favorite.) P.S. your pet bear is cute!

Great, thank you Scott. And yes, my pet bear sure does have a lovable face, doesn't she? She takes all compliments with a cookie.

Okay, that's better. Gah... two profiles can get confusing.

Kim McMahill | 6 comments My novel, Desperate Dreams, has been renamed DEADLY EXODUS (DESPERATE DREAMS), and has a new cover and blurb. I was able to update everything except I wasn't able to change the cover. If someone has access, the cover can be found at my publishers website, http://www.prismbookgroup.com under the suspense tab or I could email the file. Thanks for the help.

Paula (paulaan) | 7027 comments Kim, please start a new thread rather than hijacking another, it gets confusing, especially when a different book, author is tagged
Since this book has been published a new edition should be added.

Details on existing books should not be changed


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

So, is someone able to change the covers for me? Thanks.

Z-squared | 8580 comments hi cindy, i've made the ACEs for all three books in both kindle and ebook formats. they are a bit too numerous to link here, but let me know if you can't find them. to set the default edition to the new covers, follow these instructions:

message 14: by Joy (new)

Joy Sikorski | 8 comments Hi Z-sqaured. Thanks for helping Cindy. It made me happy to see what you did for her.

I have a problem with a book that is not showing any cover on it, although the cover shows up just fine on Amazon. The title is Tamar of the Terebinths.

Here is the page link. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Would you be so kind as to help me please?

Thanking you in advance,
Joy


message 15: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments hi joy, i've uploaded the cover for you. in the future, please start a new thread for your requests instead of tacking on to threads about other books.

also, you can claim your author profile here:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

just scroll down to 'is this you? let us know.'

Joy Sikorski | 8 comments Hi Z-squared. Did you take care of this that fast? The cover is showing up now and I am impressed and grateful. Thanks! -Joy

I wanted to ask about the author profile page too. There is another author by the name of Joy Sikorski, but she is deceased. I am not sure how to differentiate my work from hers. Is there a way to do that?

My apologies. This is the first time I've utilized the forum and this discussion group. How do I start a new thread then?

Woohoo, excellent, Joy. Thank you for your help! Much appreciated. All the best!


message 21: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments Joy, which of the books on that page are yours? I can create a separate author page for you, but I need to know which books to transfer.

message 22: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments and to start a new thread, go to the librarians group page, click on 'discussions' (near the top right corner), then click on 'new topic' (top, near the center, just to the left of the thumbnail pic of a library). then follow the prompts.

Sorry, thought I was adding a new post under the heading of changing book covers, but must have clicked the wrong comment button. Still not sure how to update my book cover since I tired to add as suggested above, but since the ISBN and ASIN didn't change, it wouldn't let me add since the book with the old cover and title exist. Thanks for the help.
