K.D. Dowdall (goodreadskddowdall) | 22 comments Hello Goodreads Librarians,

I will soon need to upload via Amazon a new edition to my Goodreads' author books. Do I just "add it" to my total book collection on good reads or request it to be added? I will also need by this new edition combined with one other older edition.

Also, am I allowed to use K. D. Dowdall's blog on Goodreads to prompt by book? I wasn't planning on doing that, however, on my author blog on WordPress.com forward it to Goodreads. Is this okay to do?

Thank you very much,

K. D. Dowdall :)

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #3 - Best way to do it is go to the book you are making a new edition or ACE (Alternate Cover Edition) of and click the "Add a New Edition" link. That will automatically combine it with the other editions.

If you then want that edition as the default edition that people who look at your author profile or search for the book you can do that.

Here is how to set your Default Edition:

Not sure about the whole blog thing, never looked into it.

V.F. Mason | 3 comments Hello,

Could you please help me with this. The book is not published yet, so I'm not sure do we need to combine those two or delete the duplicate.

This is the duplicate: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

The original one: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Thank you!

is the cover link the publisher? (we're not allowed to use covers from booksellers)


message 22: by Krzysztof (new)

Krzysztof Borkowski (borkowskikk) | 6 comments This book is from 1991. No longer in sales. The publisher no longer exists. the book i only available in antique book shops. This is a picture of paperback from one of them.


message 23: by Abcdarian (new)

Abcdarian | 23392 comments We can't use that, but if you have a copy of the book yourself and could provide a scan or photo of it, that would be ok.


message 25: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26902 comments #25 done as it is obvious it is a photo of own book.

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.

Next time, please start a new thread, as this topic title is confusing with regards to your request.

S.A. Gibson (sagibson) | 19 comments Question about my one ebook in two places on Goodreads. One is the Smashword using ISBN, the other is Kindle using ASIN. I would rather just have the Kindle one, as on the smashwords one, the amazon link does not work. They are identical ebooks.

message 41: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 26902 comments #40 Not going to happen. Not everyone uses Amazon.

The smashwords edition is linked to smashwords and everyone not using a kindle, even if they use a nook etc will want the ebook on their shelves.
