Tom Sadira (tsadira) | 12 comments Hello!

I'm a debut author who added my book here on Goodreads last week. At the time I was able to add a cover image without any problem.

Any help or guidance? I'd like to use the image I uploaded as an "additional image". The book is

Thanks for any help you can offer! I love Goodreads and the community here! Let me know if you have any questions.
