Can you change the cover on for Cannon on this page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

To the cover listed on this website (it's the third book, purple cover): http://www.ashley-nixon.com/cutlass-s...


Thank you

On the cover itself? Do you have an image that has been corrected? I can put it up for you and get rid of the old one.


message 6: by Rae (new)

Rae Matthews | 20 comments Yes on the cover.... I do have the corrected image, how do I get you the file.


Madi ~☆TheBookNerdDiaries☆~ (thebooknerddiariesblog) If you have a link to where it is posted or can post the image itself that will work.

Louis Stevens (born_writer) | 3 comments Hi,

I need to change the cover to my book listing - I added a temporary cover of the book until I had the official cover ready

Could someone please help me?

You will see the new cover in the photo section of this listing:

Thank you so much!

Warmly

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....

Alternate-cover editions added here:
A False History
Kindle: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
Paperback: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
Future's Orphans
Kindle: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
Paperback: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
I have used the covers from Amazon.

As the author, you 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: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

I didn't see the cover on your Facebook page, just a thumbnail in the header picture. Also, did the current cover go out on any advance copies?


message 22: by Rae (new)

Rae Matthews | 20 comments No I have not sent any Arcs out yet... I sent a new link hopefully you see it there


message 23: by Rae (new)

Rae Matthews | 20 comments The images is in photos


Madi ~☆TheBookNerdDiaries☆~ (thebooknerddiariesblog) Rae wrote: "The images is in photos"

Do you by chance have it on your author website?

As librarians, we are asked to only use covers from these sites:
Author Websites
Publisher Websites (such as Random House and Smashwords)
Amazon (since they now own Goodreads)
AbeBooks
Book Depository
Audible

A cover image uploaded by the book's author to their more photos section is perfectly fine.


message 27: by Rae (new)

Rae Matthews | 20 comments I just need my cover updated please... I don't understand why we can not update them ourselves...

Rae, I see that your book has not been published yet. Have any copies, including Advanced Reader Copies (ebook or print) gone out with the old cover?


message 29: by Rae (new)

Rae Matthews | 20 comments No... It is still being edited


message 30: by Rae (new)

Rae Matthews | 20 comments Also it is the same cover just correcting a typo


Debbie ♪ ♫ ‼ ♫ ♪ | 167 comments Rae wrote: "Also it is the same cover just correcting a typo"

It's done now.

Rae,

It looks as if someone has gotten to it. I apologize for not be able to get it done and faster. I use a mobile device most of the time and it's difficult to do librarian edits on it.

Hope Irving (hope_irving) | 14 comments Hi. I changed the cover of my book, Twice Upon A Time, to announce it's going to be a series. How can I show the new cover?

Ah. Okay, thank you. I missed that step and much appreciated for the help!

Hope, I added new editions to reflect the new covers. If you want to change the default edition to one of the ones with the new covers, you'll need to visit the link that Rivka mentioned: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3....
