message 1: by Brenda (new)

Brenda Jones | 5 comments I have just manually added my book, Where the Wind Ceases to Move. I did not add a cover photo at the time I added the book. How do I add a cover photo? The book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
In addition, I believe that when I set up my author page, it will have a book on it from a different Brenda K Jones. I have only written one book so far, so I will need to know how to set up a page that has my book only.

Thank you

Abcdarian | 22120 comments Hi Brenda: I added your cover from Amazon, and changed the name to Brenda K. Jones, the period as required by Goodreads. There are a couple of books on that profile already, so we could move your book to a new Brenda K. Jones profile or a new Brenda Jones profile, as just Brenda Jones is on your book. Which would you prefer?

Thank you for adding my cover photo. Please move my book to a new author page listed as Brenda K. Jones. Thank you

I recently changed my book cover for Oasis in the Clouds, and it needs to be updated here. Please take the new cover from my blog: www.thelifeofesther.com
Thank you!

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 editions added here:
paperback: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
ebook: 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.

Also, please start a new thread next time, as this one is linked to a specific book.

Hi, thank you so much, that was really helpful. Does it make a difference that the paperback version has not yet been published (it is coming out next week)? Could there only be the most recent edition available for that one then?

The paperback edition here on Goodreads says July 19th: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3..., Amazon says July 22th: https://www.amazon.com/Oasis-Clouds-C...

Brenda Jones | 5 comments If it would be easier, it is OK with me if my author page is set up as Brenda Jones without the middle initial. I just want to be sure that I have an author page which lists only my book, Where the Wind Ceases to Move, and does not list the books by the other authors named Brenda K. Jones.

If you prefer the initial, that's fine, no harder to set up. Here is a new Brenda K. Jones profile with your book: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... To claim this one, click the "Is this you? Let us know" link at the bottom of that page. When it goes through it will merge with your current reader profile.
