I am Jennifer Clair, but I didn't write one of the books listed under my author profile. How do I delete the other Jennifer Clair's "Nigh Nigh" book?

Thank you!
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer- The profile you've linked to is an unclaimed author profile- are the other 2 cooking books listed there yours?

Jennifer Clair | 8 comments I just claimed the profile today; I suppose it takes a while to confirm me. The two cookbooks are indeed mine (Knack and Six Basic Cooking Techniques). Should I just wait for my profile to be accepted; will I then be able to delete the book that is not mine?

No; it won't actually be deleted, it will just be moved to a different profile, and I've done that already by correcting the last name. You should be all set now, I just wanted to confirm that neither of the other books needed to be moved.

Jennifer Clair | 8 comments Yes, thank you!

Jennifer Clair | 8 comments I see the name change, but it is still listed under my profile I think. Or does it take a while to update your changes?

Also (and let me know if I need to add a new thread)...how do I upload an image to my book...do I have to wait for my author profile to be updated to do that?

Thanks,
Jennifer

The pages can be heavily cached, so changes take a little while to actually show. I see that it's gone now, and I've added the Amazon cover for your book- https://www.goodreads.com/author/list....

Jennifer Clair | 8 comments Thank you...actually the Amazon listing has a terrible, fuzzy photo (trying to correct that). How do I send you (or upload) a better resolution photo?

Yes, thanks, I've replaced the cover image with the one you provided- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3....

Jennifer Clair | 8 comments Is there some guideline for image size for book covers? Mine is coming up distorted and I want to provide the right size to make it look its best. Thanks!

I've replaced it again, but I'm not sure the quality is any better (as far as I can see).

Jennifer Clair | 8 comments Thanks for trying. I am not sure what is making it come up so poorly, but I'll try and figure it out with my graphic designer and may follow up with an additional image option.

Thanks!
Jennifer
