Teresa Wainwright | 6 comments Hi, I have created my author profile under Teresa Wainwright (the name I use for non-fiction) and now want to link a novel written under my pen name of Terry Wainwright to my author page. The book is The Life and Times of a Gypsy's Dog. I imported the paperback version to Goodreads, thinking that I could add my real name as a second author and thus claim it to my author page. Alas, the second author name is not showing up. Are you able to link this book to my author page for me? I also need to delete the old Kindle cover that originally appeared on Goodreads (as no sales were ever made under that cover) and change it to the current Kindle cover, the link is here https://www.amazon.com/Life-Times-Gyp... many thanks in advance, Teresa

Arenda | 22038 comments Added Teresa Wainwright as secondary author to The Life and Times of a Gypsy's Dog.
I've merged a duplicate paperback edition and added the cover to the edition with the isbn.

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 edition added here:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

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.
How to set the default edition.
Although this might not work for you as your claimed profile is not in primary position. If it is not working, you can contact Goodreads Support and ask them to set the default edition.
