It’s a Kindle edition and Amazon is still showing the existing cover.

B.C. Johnson (bcjohnson) | 20 comments I got a confirmation via email that it's been updated, but it looks like it hasn't come through yet on Amazon. Should happen in the next day or so.

Okay, please post back here once it's up so a librarian can create the alternate cover edition.

Can you help us to fix this on GoodReads?

Rob. C. (robertawrites) Hi librarians. I changed the appearance of the cover of my book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... and would like to change it without adding a new edition. Is that possible, please? If you could delete the cover for both editions (Kindle and ebook https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) I would then upload the new one.
Let me know if this is possible.
Thank you.

James Clayton | 1 comments Hi Librarians,

I am new to Goodreads, so I would like your assistance.

I would like to make sure my three self-published books on Amazon are current and available on Goodreads.

I have recently added my newest book, The Why of Waterfalls, to Amazon. I also updated the cover on my other two books, Reflections on a Leaf Floating and By Riverside So Dear. Would you please help me add/update them?

I would like my books to be current.

Thanks,

James Fredenburg

Unfortunately, no. GR policy is too keep all published covers, and instead to create alternate cover editions when covers change. This allows readers to shelve an edition with a specific cover. Let us know if you wish to proceed in this way.

Thank you. I tried doing adding a new edition, but I got a message saying that another book with the same Asin code was already available and I shouldn't create another version. If that's okay and it doesn't create trouble having two books with the same ASIN, I can add a new edition myself. Let me know.

Thank you

To create the alternate cover edition, you will need the help of a GR librarian. You can post back here, providing all publication details, including a link to the new cover image. I notice, however, that Amazon is still showing the existing cover for the Kindle edition you referred to in your original post—when will the new cover be published?

Thank you. I received a confirmation from Amazon that the updates will be live within 24 hours. However, the new cover is already up on Smashwords. Here is the link to the book page: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...
Or the link to the cover image: https://dwtr67e3ikfml.cloudfront.net/...

This is for book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... and all the other details are the same. The book will be available only as e-book and Kindle version.

Let me know if you need me to provide other details. Thanks for your assistance!

thank you. However, I noticed the Kindle cover is still the old one (Amazon hasn't updated it yet. I'm contacting KDP now to see what's taking them so long). Also, when I follow the link for the ebook I get the correct cover. However, when I go back to my author dashboard and click on the book, I still see the old covers only. Shouldn't there be 4 thumbnails underneath the description?
I'm wondering also because I have Goodreads links for the book everywhere on my website and in all my books (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) , so I want to make sure the link I'm using will point to the correct book.
Thank you (sorry for all the trouble).

Codex | 3401 comments #25: Roberta, the covers for the two Kindle editions are different:
Original: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
ACE: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

The difference is primarily in the subtitle (but also in the title font size). If you switch between the two book pages these differences are immediately apparent. Even though the background image is basically the same, the changes mentioned above constitute a difference in cover and require creation of an ACE: what has been done—and done on that basis.

ETA: As for what is appearing on your author dashboard, you may want to refer to the Author FAQ; specifically, message 4.

Thank you. I understand what you mean, but I've noticed that the Amazon Kindle cover is still not the correct one. I know this is a little messy, I'm sorry. When I first published the book, the cover had a different subtitle, but Smashwords didn't accept it, so I had to change it. Since it was already up on Amazon, I left the one with the old subtitle, so there were two different covers.
Now I've updated everything (and also updated the font to match with my author logo and website) and I need both covers to be the same. The one you uploaded for the Kindle version is the old one I used for Smashwords. Can you update this https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... with the same cover as the Smashwords edition https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... please?
Sorry for all the confusion. Let me know if you need me to confirm other details.
Thank you.

This is the new cover:

Could you add the new cover? Thank you!

Okay: the Amazon page for the Kindle edition (ASIN: B0191T3JG2) now shows an updated cover. New alternate cover edition created (cover from Amazon): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
I think this is what you wanted.

Also added to The Immortal Chronicles series, which required some cleanup because Descent and Crash works were all combined together.
