Craig Seymour | 3 comments I recently published the first two books of a new Middle Grade series on Amazon and have a bit of a mess here on Goodreads. I used a pen name and once published I found that the name when searched brought up some inappropriate titles for the age group. I changed the cover and name, but, Goodreads has the old one with the incorrect name. No copies were sold with that name and cover and would like to see it changed.
https://www.amazon.com/Headless-Horse...
Secondly, I manually added the second title but, clicked enter without adding the cover.
https://www.amazon.com/Power-Amulet-M...
Thanks for your help.

Kiri Fiona (kirifiona) | 175 comments Hi, Craig.
- I've created the series Magic Amulet Mystery and added both books to it https://www.goodreads.com/series/1849...
- Added Craig L. Seymour as an author on The Headless Horseman Returns, since it looks like your name for that work was C. Seymour?
- Cover image for The Power of the Amulet added from your link above.
Have any ARCs gone out for The Headless Horseman Returns with the cover showing on GR?
Cheers :)

But it was published with it. Goodreads does not remove published covers. And all editions of work must have the original author name it was published under as the first listed author.

Since it was published with that cover, that's not really relevant.

Looks like one of the books needs an ACE.

Craig Seymour | 3 comments Thank you for the help on this. I still need to have my Goodreads name added to the Horseman so that it will show up in my list. Can that be handled here, or do I need to post to another group?

Kiri Fiona (kirifiona) | 175 comments Adding your GR author name to the Horseman doesn't seem to be working for me - I've posted in another thread for help. Will update you soon :)

GR author name fixed; https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... now associates with the right author.
