Tizzy | 3 comments I'm having a little problem updating my book listing (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...) to show my new cover art.

The book was launched with the cover displayed there, but after feedback from readers who considered the cover wasn't to market I commissioned a new one. That cover went live on Saturday.

I've tried updating the data here, but I can't. I'm not allowed to delete the cover image for the current kindle listing and your FAQ mentions I should create an alternate edition page. However, I can't create said page either because amazon did not assign me a new ASIN as I updated the cover art so I'm rather stuck here. Is there anything I can do to update my book info? I'd really like for the book to display its updated cover art rather than the old one that doesn't quite represent the tone of its writing.

Your book link doesn't work; which book are we talking about here? Alternate cover editions are marked as alternate covers; the ASIN will stay with the original edition, but as the author you'll have the ability to set the default edition.

There's the link. I'll go look into the alternate cover thing, it's quite likely I tried to add a whole new edition instead, hence the ASIN issue.

It should be all set now, I see the new edition cover that you added. You can set the default edition, which will appear in title searches and on your author page, by following these steps- https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3....
