Lena (lenanorth) | 26 comments Hey,
Could you please add the covers to the following two books - No new editions, they just have new covers (I know you don't replace, but if you could add them I'd appreciate it).


Sweet Water:

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3610 comments Lena, we need some clarification first.

Goodreads lists two editions of Wilder:
• Kindle ASIN B01MQIYHIX Wilder
• ebook ISBN 9789188367082 Wilder

and two editions of Sweet Water:
• Kindle ASIN B06XHPG389 Sweet Water
• ISBN 9789188367112 categorized as Kindle Sweet Water

Are your books released in both Kindle and ebook formats? Kindle and ebook are considered different formats in the Goodreads catalog. Kindle editions have ASIN identifiers and are sold only on Amazon; ebooks have ISBN identifiers and are sold by vendors other than Amazon.

When I searched the ISBNs, both went to Kindle editions on Amazon.We need to verify whether you also published in ebook (non-Amazon) format.

Once we have this information, we can proceed with creating alternate cover editions for your new covers.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3610 comments Thanks, Lena. I have merged the two duplicate books; all reviews will be under the Kindle editions.

I'll add the ACEs tomorrow morning.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3610 comments Hi Lena—

The duplicate editions (with the ISBN instead of ASIN) have been merged with the correct Kindle editions, and I've created the editions with the new covers.

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as readers want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition (ACE). See Author FAQ and Adding an alternate-cover edition.

Here are your new alternate-cover editions:

»   Wilder —ASIN B01MQIYHIX

»   Sweet Water —ASIN B06XHPG389

As the author, you can set the default edition — that is, the one that comes up in searches by title and shows on your author profile. Here's how to do that.
