Pamela Ford (goodreadscompamela_ford) | 5 comments I changed the color of the title/author name on two books to white to make them easier to read. The rest of the covers remains the same. With a minor change like that, can the covers be replaced, or do alternate versions need to be created? Here are links to the new versions:

Arenda | 22053 comments Alternate-cover edition for Over Easy 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.

For Fresh Brewed, the original Kindle edition had its ASIN in the isbn13 field: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3..., so a new edition with the ASIN in the ASIN field and the new cover could be imported: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I've also created a series for your books: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1857...

Pamela Ford (goodreadscompamela_ford) | 5 comments The covers are all set to default to the new version, which is great. But when I log-in to Goodreads, the first screen that opens...upper right corner is the box with the headline, "Author Dashboard" that shows # of people who have added the book, # of ratings/reviews, and a link to "visit your dashboard." Why does it show the old cover there?

The author dashboard can only be seen by you. Setting the default edition will work for your author page, when searching the book and on the series page (when there is one). Setting the default does not influence the edition that shows on your dashboard.
