Kimberly Lewis (kimberlylewis) | 23 comments Can someone please help me by adding my new cover for "Zane"?

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I...

And since this is the new cover, how do I make this the primary image when you visit my books page?

Thank you!!

Louise | 10 comments Hi,
I am a Goodreads Author and I'm soon going to self publish my book. However, I've changed my book cover slightly and I can't delete the old one as only a librarian can do that? Help!

its necessary to create another edition with the new cover. Its called: alternate cover edition.

We do this to allow people to shelve the exact edition they own.

You will be able to set the default edition for you book: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Send the new cover link here. As it was not shelved yet, its wont be a problem to make that change.

Louise | 10 comments This is going to sound really stupid - I'm new to this. What do you mean and how?

its ok. Just send the file (cover image) to a file host (such as imgur.com, dropbox, onedrive) and send the link over here.

Followed the link you provided and went to my books page, clicked on add new edition, and filled it out per the directions in the link but it appears to have created a whole new book listing (I entered the ISBN and indicated it was an ACE in the description box like it said to do). How do I get this new edition to link to my existing books page?

David Cook (thewolfshead) | 13 comments Hello,

Can a kind librarian change my cover photo for my book published April - just noticed its the older version.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

It should be the additional photo or here on onedrive:

Thank you

Z-squared | 8580 comments re 10, your photo link doesn't work. i'd recommend uploading the photo to your author profile's 'more photos' section.

Also, please note that Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers because users like to shelve the edition that matches your own. So if you intend to change covers but keep the same ASIN or ISBN, we will make something called an alternate cover edition (ACE) for you instead of swapping out the old cover. As the author, you can then set the ACE as the default edition, which is what will appear on your author page and in search results by title.

David Cook (thewolfshead) | 13 comments Hello - yes please keep ASIN - photo to be uploaded in more photos section.

Thanks


message 13: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments David, did you already upload the new cover image? I'm not seeing it, sorry :( If you already did, try uploading it to the 'more photos' section of the actual book (go to edit, then click on 'add additional images' on the right). Only as a temporary measure, of course, because alt covers aren't supposed to go there, but sometimes that's easier for librarians to see if for whatever reason authors have trouble uploading it to their profile.

if you haven't uploaded the new cover yet, then I (or another librarian) will create your ACE when you do. Just post back here again with the link.

It gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book or author is also used for other books. I am closing this thread. Start new ones for other books.
