message 1: by Wayne (new)

Wayne Grant | 10 comments I have recently updated the covers on three of my books on Amazon. Will these new covers automatically update on Goodreads? If not, how do I get the new covers added to my books. I am Wayne Grant, author. My books that have new covers are Longbow, Warbow and The Broken Realm. Thank you!


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments No, they won't. But a librarian can add them as alternate cover edition.
Would be helpful to provide the goodreads links to the books you wanna have changed and the amazon links to the books with the new cover.

Arenda | 19998 comments 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:
Longbow: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
Warbow: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
The Broken Realm: 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.
