Kat Heatherington (yarrowkat) | 2 comments hello! I need to add a book cover to my book, but the link to do so is not there.

I've tried looking with three different browsers, using the instructions on the Author page; not sure if I'm missing something, or I just don't have access to upload a cover image. The image is here:

Any help much appreciated, thank you!

lethe | 13673 comments Of course I can upload the cover for you, but you might like to know how to do it yourself. On the book page, do you see the small grey 'edit details' link underneath the book record? Click on that.

Then on the edit page, the option to add a cover photo is in the top right-hand corner. Select a file (you must have the cover downloaded to your computer first) and save. That should do the trick :)

Kat Heatherington (yarrowkat) | 2 comments thank you!

the page is completely different when i click it now than it was 10 minutes ago -- it seems to have realized i'm the author. previously, the edit options were limited to metadata, and the button was not there.

much appreciated!
