Dave (davecenker) | 12 comments I am looking to add editions for my novel so that each of the options in the "Stores" dropdown will take a reader to the proper book page on the desire retailer. If the original artwork is needed for the cover, it can be found at www.davecenker.com/second-chance.

The editions being requested are for Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, and Google Play (the Amazon link is already working properly):

Barnes & Noble ID: 2940162123095
iBooks Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id13...
Kobo Link: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/seco...
Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/books/d...

If there is any other information you need, please let me know and thank you in advance for your help in creating and combining these editions. It is much appreciated!

Dave (davecenker) | 12 comments This request has been static for about two weeks. How long should I expect before I receive a response? I completely understand and appreciate that these requests are handled by volunteers. I am only asking to be sure that it is on someone's radar or in the queue to be addressed at some point in the future. Thank you!

We cannot use bookseller links for book covers or other book data. Please see: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4...

Dave (davecenker) | 12 comments Thank you for the response, rivka.

As a follow-up question, is there a thread that annotates what information needs to be used to accomplish this request? I have looked through the pinned and non-pinned threads without finding anything specific.

Many other authors have editions created that take them directly to the bookseller site (B&N, Kobo, iBooks, etc). Also, in the case of B&N, I actually provided the B&N ID, and not a link.

If there is any information you can provide or direct me to on how other authors have achieved what I'm asking to do, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Which is good, but not enough information.
