Aaron Lazar (aaronpaullazar) | 10 comments Good morning! I have been reviewing my stable of books and am horrified that I let things go this long. I'm really so dumb when it comes to using Goodreads, but I am trying and want to learn! If any generous librarian out there is willing to teach me how or fix these cover and missing edition issues, plus some more complicated merging and series name changes, I would be forever grateful! Here's the long list:

The Seacrest: a love story ASIN: B00G1TDBRI

There is new cover art for all three editions of the book, print, eBook, and audiobook. It’s all up on Amazon. Is there a way I can update this? Or do you need to do it? Thanks in advance for helping me!

Double Forte’: a Gus LeGarde Mystery ASIN B01697UIW2

I tried to update this book. All new everything, re-released by author in print, eBook and audiobook with new cover art, new synopsis, etc. Everything is correct on Amazon – can we update or merge the old and new with the new version on top?
Award to add: 2012 ForeWord BOTYA, Mystery, FINALIST

Under The Ice: a Gus LeGarde Mystery ASIN B00RBU83YM

There are three editions of this book, but I only saw the Kindle one on Goodreads. I tried to “add” the print book but it said the ISBN was already taken. I guess I really need to learn more about “how to!”

Devil’s Lake (Bittersweet Hollow, book 1) ASIN B00LNFP8XU
Also has an audio book edition!

Tremolo: cry of the loon ASIN B0042RULTM

This book’s audio book has a beautiful cover on Audible. Is it possible to update the cover art for it?

Don’t Let the Wind Catch You: a Gus LeGarde Mystery ASIN B00ECNEOTE

The audiobook version of this has a nice cover on Audible. Can we add that?

For the Birds: a Tall Pines Mystery (book 1) ASIN B016WENW5W

All 3 current versions of this book (print, eBook, audiobook) have the new artwork showing two figures on front. Can we make this artwork show as the primary image when the book is searched on? The old artwork is on previous version from my old publisher. Thank you!

FireSong: a Gus LeGarde Mystery ASIN: B004VF698W

This book has artwork for the Nook version as well as new artwork for the audiobook version. Can we update?

For Keeps: a Sam Moore Mystery ASIN: B008OXZLR2

This book has an audiobook with new cover art.
Also, the series name has been changed to “Green Marble Mysteries”

Healey’s Cave (formerly a Sam Moore Mystery, now Green Marble Mystery) has been completely retitled to The Disappearance of Billy Moore (a Green Marble Mystery, book 1) and re-released as new ebook, print book, and audiobook with beautiful new cover art. Can we combine with the original book, but show the new books as primary?
New ASIN is B016A6YWRY
Old ASIN is B003ZYEVI0

Spirit Me Away: a Gus LeGarde Mystery ASIN B00K7RA8QW

Also has an audiobook!

Sanctuary: a Tall Pines Mystery (book 3) ASIN B00MU76KCS

Also has a nice cover image for the print book
Need to add audiobook with cover

The Seacroft: a love story (Paines Creek Beach, book 2)

Also has a print edition, same cover
Needs cover art for the audiobook edition

The Liar’s Gallery: a Gus LeGarde Mystery ASIN B00LMD7ZSO

Also has an audiobook
Print book needs the cover image.

Mazurka: a Gus LeGarde Mystery ASIN 1606191608

Needs cover art for NOOK and Audiobook versions.

Terror Comes Knocking: a Sam Moore Mystery ASIN 1606191705

Series name changed to “a Green Marble Mystery” (book 2)
Need cover art updated for audio book (different from print and ebook cover)

Devil’s Creek (Bittersweet Hollow, book 2)

Needs cover art for print book
Needs audiobook added

Betrayal: a Tall Pines Mystery (book 4) ASIN: B00N2134W0
Needs paperback cover image
Also has an audiobook

Write Like the Wind, volumes 1, 2, and 3
These books were completely rereleased under new ASINs, ISBNs, etc. There are three books with new cover art. They are available in eBook and audiobook. To make it easier, here is the series description with links from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Guides-...

Thank you so much in advance for all you do. Whatever I need to do to accomplish the above, I will be happy to do it with instructions. I’m a real dummy when it comes to Goodreads!

Warmest wishes,

Aaron Paul Lazar

Abcdarian | 19392 comments I made a start by adding covers that were entirely missing, mostly for audiobooks, as well as their narrators. Lots of work left adding new editions etc., which I am leaving for someone else.


message 3: by Arenda (new)

Arenda | 20189 comments I'll start working on the remaining


message 4: by Arenda (new)

Arenda | 20189 comments 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 have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on their author profile.
Here are the instructions: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Whatever I need to do to accomplish the above, I will be happy to do it with instructions. I’m a real dummy when it comes to Goodreads!
Next time please make a separate request for each book, or number each request, to better keep track which request is done.
I'll post the reply to each book in a different post below.
