Dawn Knox | 3 comments Hi, Please would you be able to change the cover art for my book to the cover shown on Facebook here
Is that a good enough quality image?

Georgeana | 771 comments Cover change undone.

It is against GR policy to change covers. Instead, an alternate cover edition is added.

New editions for the kindle and paperback have been added here.

Dawn, as the author you can set the default by following the instructions outlined here.

Dawn Knox | 3 comments Thank you very much. However, I'm a bit confused because the link I sent you has the cover which you uploaded with a finalists' badge from the Wishing Shelf Book Awards on it. However, you have uploaded the image without the badge. Did you get it from Amazon? I have just requested that Amazon replace the image they have with one which has the badge but they haven't done that yet.

Hugo (hugo_nebula) | 730 comments Hi, Dawn.

Facebook is not on the list of acceptable sources for book covers (see here -, so the Librarian updated the book with its new cover from Amazon.

If the updated cover with the award badge appears on Amazon (or on your own website, which is acceptable), then the book can be updated again, however this may require a further Alternate Cover Edition be generated.

However, in the interim, I have added your nomination into the Awards field of the entry, so it now appears on all editions of your book -

Dawn Knox | 3 comments Ah, thanks Hugo! Amazon are dealing with the new photo but your addition is probably just as good, thank you very much.
