Removed. We cannot use covers or book data from Barnes & Noble.

Lani, do you have the new cover somewhere else? And what ISBN or ASIN goes with it? The kindle edition still seems to have the old cover on Amazon.

Edit: I found the new cover on your Facebook page, and added it as an ebook with no ISBN or ASIN. If it has one, please let us know and it can be added.

Julietta, please post requests once, not in multiple threads. If you are concerned about your request being seen, you are better off starting a brand new thread, not posting in every related thread you can find.

As the author, you will 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...

Lynn Hallbrooks (lynnhallbrooks) | 29 comments We recently changed the book cover for Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning) - can you update it here. This is the Amazon Link:

Trade Soft cover:

http://www.amazon.com/Call-Sign-Wreck...

Here is the ISBN:

ISBN-10: 0982792352
ISBN-13: 978-0982792353

Kindle:

http://www.amazon.com/Call-Sign-Wreck...

ASIN: B004INHK2G

This is the Smashwords link if you need that - it might help to combine as it seems it is listed twice on my author's dashboard

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...

ISBN:

9781465928795

Thanks

I thought I had this done correctly, however when I search for the book, i still have the old cover. Have I done something wrong?

The new cover has been set as the the default. What are you searching by? When I search by title, I see the new cover: https://www.goodreads.com/search?utf8...

Nicola Dorrington (nsdorrington) | 3 comments Would someone be able to change or update the cover of the following book for me? The new cover has just been changed on amazon so it would be great if I could get it changed on here too...

Larissa Brown (larissabrown) | 9 comments Hi there,

We have a new cover for my book Beautiful Wreck. The book is the same, only the cover changes.

The new cover can be grabbed from the book's website. Amazon will take a few days to reflect the change. Does this suffice? Let me know if you need anything more.

http://www.beautifulwreckbook.com/

Edited to add: Many people will still have the edition with the woman's portrait on the cover.

Thank you!
Larissa

Hey Larissa, firstly congratulations for the new cover :)
I have created an alternate cover edition of this book, here: Alt. Cover Ed. and have combined the edition with the Original one (with the woman's portrait on the cover), so both the editions would be there. No worries.

Larissa Brown (larissabrown) | 9 comments Thank you! I have a question. Can the new cover be the default cover for anyone who searches for the book? Or when the thumbnail appears anywhere? The other one is going to be discontinued, and this will also be the new cover for the kindle and all e-books. I appreciate it. I'm excited about the new art.

Nicola Dorrington (nsdorrington) | 3 comments Hi, I don't know if anyone saw my previous message about someone possibly helping me change the cover on my novel The Last Knight? Just let me know what details you need.

The new cover is here on amazon

Thank you, that was easy.

Z-squared | 8580 comments re 23, Goodreads policy is to keep all published editions because users like to shelve the virtual copy that matches their physical one. Instead, we create alternate cover editions (ACEs), and you as the author have the ability to set the new cover as the default edition. I have created an ACE for your book here:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

To set it or any other edition as the default, follow the instructions here:
