Lisa Akers (LLAkers) | 5 comments I've changed the covers for the first two books of the trilogy (the 3rd is already correct.) Can someone update the first two books?

Here are the covers for Let Me Go & Captured Again:

And here are their pages:

Also, I just requested a giveaway on both books (waiting for approval), and then realized they still had old covers. Will the new covers show on the GiveAway or should I somehow cancel my GiveAways?

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Ms. Akers, we do not replace covers of published books on Goodreads as users would want to shelve the editions they have matching the covers. We create alternate-cover editions (ACE) instead. Created ACEs for your books as follows

Let Me Go - Kindle (B00I5WVJLY), Paperback (9781490961958), Paperback (9781495980732)
Captured Again - Kindle (B00I5WVGSK), Paperback (9781495976506)

As the author, you have the ability to set default/primary edition (that comes up on author page, user searches, etc) for your books by following these steps

For the Giveaways, you should ask GR staff to cancel them and re-submit the new covers for Giveaway. Since the new covers don't have ISBNs associated with them, you should provide the Book ID which is in the edition's url.

Eg: Book ID for is 29421108.

Should there be a new cover for the bolded ISBN above? Amazon still has the old cover for this paperback edition.

Lisa Akers (LLAkers) | 5 comments Thank you so much! Re: the new cover for the bolded ISBN, I can't even see that on Amazon. But it's probably the edition that was once sold through a distributor. I don't have access to that book.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments If the bolded ISBN doesn't have a new cover, we can remove the ACE :)

Lisa Akers (LLAkers) | 5 comments I looked in Author Central. It is there, and does have the new cover. The book itself is not available to purchase, but it does have the new cover, so it's all good. Thanks again for helping so promptly :)

Lisa Akers (LLAkers) | 5 comments One more question! I've gotten the GiveAway's set up for books 1 and 2 of this trilogy, but everytime I try to set it up for Book 3, Find Me, Keep Me, it tells me "Invalid Book ID."

I've tried both ISBN numbers, without hypens. Not sure what else to do. I've tried at least 6 times. Any advice?

Here's the ISBN: 978-1523974269

The only editions listed on Goodreads for book #3 are an ebook edition and a Kindle edition:

A print edition will need to be added before you can create a giveaway for that book.

Lisa Akers (LLAkers) | 5 comments Oh! That explains that. So sorry! Thank you.

Looks like you added the print edition successfully, and have a giveaway waiting for approval. Great!
