Jean Gill (jeangill) | 5 comments I've managed to make the new cover the prime one but the old covers still show up for ebook links. Can some kind librarian replace the old cover on the ebook and the kindle versions? I think there's a bit of a mess with all the different versions and the up to date should be 1) paperback/print from the 13th Sign (as in title of this query) 2) kindle by the 13th Sign 3) ebooks via non amazon distributors by The 13th Sign.
Thank you!


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6187 comments can you please link to the editions you want us to create an alternate cover edition for?
and to sources with the new cover for exact that edition (we have to verify if the ISBN/ASIN matches and only use that exact cover - from a valid source)

I don't know whether other ebooks should be added? There is also ISBN 9781524258504 for distribution via Draft2Digital.

alternate cover edition for the kindle https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

smashwords: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
here is an explanation how to set an edition you choose as default (coming up first in search and shown as edition on your profile) in case you need it.

I didn't set a pubdate yet, we do set the date when the cover change took effect for the alternate covers - not the original publishing date perhaps you do know that (month and year would be enough)?

And the other editions with the covers have to stay in the database as GR is a cataloging site and readers really often want to shelf exactly that book they own and not one with a different cover.


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6187 comments I must admit I'm not sure if/how to proceed with 9781524258504
The page you linked only shows links to several booksellers - which we can't use data from (and amazon doesn't have that ISBN does it?) and smashwords has that other ISBN too ...
I checked on worldcat but the ISBN wasn't found there either.

But perhaps someone else has an idea...


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6187 comments #4 Sarah please open your own thread as this one is tied to a specific book (see in the header) and it only leads to confusion especially if the original issue isn't fully solved yet.

Jean Gill (jeangill) | 5 comments Publication date with new cover: February 2016

Yes, i understand that older covers/ editions stay in circulation. I'm trying to avoid them showing up as current and thank you so much for your help!


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6187 comments set the pub date and it looks like you were able to set the default correct :)

Jean Gill (jeangill) | 5 comments The kindle's still not right? Ebook's perfect :)

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6187 comments what's wrong with it? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... (I may be overlooking something? too much fluffy dog :D)

Roni Askey-Doran | 1 comments Pendulum ebook cover https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...
Pendulum paperback cover
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
How do I make these match? I'd like them to both be the same as the paperback cover, and what the ebook has on smashwords...
Cheers

that's true (we had a Bernese Mountain Dog, big and fluffy :D)
Glad everything's fine now


☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6187 comments #12 Roni please do not post in a thread linked to a specific book (see header) with a different request -that's confusing for other users.
you can easily open a own one https://www.goodreads.com/topic/new?c...
