Marcha Fox (marchafox) | 10 comments I see that my book has been added but it doesn't show the cover. It is currently on preorder for release on May 30. Is that why it's not showing the cover? Here's the amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Terra-Debacle-... and the cover can also be found on my book website here: https://startrailssaga.com/a-family-s... Thank you!

It appears that you added the pbk edition you're referencing, and you didn't add a cover, which is why it doesn't have one. The link you provided is to a Kindle edition, which cannot be used for a pbk; covers are not interchangeable. I've added the cover from your website, https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3..., and also added the Kindle edition that you linked to. In the future, a link to the book on Goodreads is helpful.

Marcha Fox (marchafox) | 10 comments I'm sorry I forgot to include the Goodreads link. Thank you for going above and beyond helping! I really appreciate it.

Patrick Notchtree | 4 comments I have a similar issue. My cover is shown at
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
but is missing at
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
which is a search result.
How can I correct that please?

#4- Okay, I've corrected the author name by adding punctuation after the middle initial, and have combined some editions.

Also, in the future it's best to start a new thread with a new request rather than posting in one that's linked to another request; it can get confusing.

ETA: I've found some other titles that needed to be moved to your profile, so I'm going through those, too, and trying to sort them out.

ETA #2: Sorted titles, and have created a series https://www.goodreads.com/series/2066.... There are a couple of strays I'm going to merge to clean up a little bit.

The ebook edition without the cover https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... may have to remain coverless; I'm not able to find a cover image from an acceptable source.

Patrick Notchtree | 4 comments Thank you for. The cover at
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
Is the same, and as it's on Goodreads, I assume it's an acceptable source. :-)

Thanks for the new series. The structure is that it is a trilogy, but Book 1, The Book fo Daniel, is also available separately. The trilogy is also available in one volume.
It is also published as three separate volumes, because of size, in large print.
The trilogy is also available as an audiobook.

Completely separately from the trilogy, I also have a little book called Apostrophe Catastrophe, published by The History Press.

I hope this helps you, and thank you for your time and hard work.

We cannot copy a cover from one edition of a book to another.
