Emy (emypt) | 5029 comments Working on creating Alternate Cover editions. As a point, please do NOT put cover photos in the book record - that area specifically states that it is not for that purpose. You can add covers to your own photos though.

Ine | 263 comments Isobel, the root of this issue lies in the "Get a copy" button. When there is no ASIN or ISBN (as with an alternative cover edition), it only grabs the title to search on Amazon or other sites. A solution would be if the search grabbed both the title and the author.

I hate to be sending you all over the place for this, but unfortunately this is something that should be addressed in the Feedback forum. The Author Feedback forum is probably better than the general one:

Some authors avoid the issue by not changing existing Amazon books to their new cover and title but by having a new ASIN and treating it like a new book. That way the new ASIN is added to Goodreads and the "Get a copy" functionality works as intended.
