Lisa | 11 comments We need to add a second author to the title The Hard Truth About Sunshine. The primary author will be Sawyer Bennett (as listed), with the secondary author as S. Bennett.

I have attempted to add S. Bennett to the record and it won't accept the change. S. Bennett has a user account, but I am unable to request an author account until there is a book to claim, which there is not, since it will not allow me to add S. Bennett to the record.

The title has been updated within Amazon, and the kindle record in Amazon shows both authors listed on record.

Can you please point me in the correct direction so I can get this issue handled? Thanks so much.

Arenda | 21810 comments Author names that are too similar to the existing author can't be added directly.

As for the new cover that is on Amazon, 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, with S. Bennett as secondary author:
