Sam (sammusings) | 3 comments I added a book I wrote and would like to add the cover. I've already requested to be upgraded to an author a few times but never received a response. Is there a way to add the cover as a regular member? Thank you!

Scott | 24903 comments No, you'd have to be a librarian. You can add the cover to your additional photos and one of us can grab it from there.

Oh, awesome- and thanks for answering. I just uploaded it. Do I now ask a librarian to do that for me?

The reason your profile has not been approved may have to do with the fact that it's a single name. Single names cannot be disambiguated. The profile contains books by several authors: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Thank you! I will remedy that...thought it was okay as I've seen several authors with only first names here, including my name..I only have 1 book, the others aren't mine. Thanks again.
