Eric Reese | 18 comments Most of the covers listed under my name are out of date and do not reflect the current ones. Also, there are no more Kindle Versions of my ebooks. Only Ibooks, Kobo, and Nook. Please refer to these channels only unless you are uploading the Paperback which is on amazon.com/author/ericreeese.

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments We cannot pull covers from Ibooks, Kobo, or Nook.

If you want ACEs (Alternate Cover Editions) of your books created, please provide a link to the edition on GR that you are referring to, and a link to a valid site which lists the ISBN with the cover, that we can pull the cover from. 1 way to get us the covers is to Upload them to your Additional Pictures section of your profile and provide the link to the picture.

Eric Reese | 18 comments Ok. I will provide the Createspace links today.


message 4: by Eric (new)

Eric Reese | 18 comments Also all Kindle versions should be removed. There are no Kindle versions of my books.

Scott | 25097 comments If there were once Kindle versions, they have to remain, because people may have read them, or will read them if they are still on their device.

Goodreads does not delete out-of-print books or editions. Please see http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/22... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/32...

Eric Reese | 18 comments Ok but I need each book cover and details updated. That’s my main concern.


message 8: by Philip (new)

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments Can be done once we have the information.


message 9: by Eric (new)

Eric Reese | 18 comments In the past, I noticed that some of my books had as many as 14 versions which is not true. For my works there were only editions for each platform; Createspace, audible, iBooks, ok, kobo and Kindle.


message 10: by Eric (new)

Eric Reese | 18 comments Ok, Philip. Will submit the information in the next few hours. Ina Meeting at the moment.

That is because each new cover is added as a new edition for each ISBN or ASIN to which it applies.

Eric Reese | 18 comments Also, is there a way that only the author uploads the books? I’ve noticed that my titles were uploaded by other people and/or Amazon or book publishers. This can cause confusion with the links.

No there is no way to force that.

I uploaded the links. Have you had a chance to begin uploading the new covers? I haven't seen any changes as of yet.
