S.A. Chapman | 5 comments Hi there,

I am a bit lost. I recently revised my book - which at the moment is only available as a Kindle e-book. When I updated it on KDP and set it as edition 2, it doesn't seem to have any effect. As in, I can't tell anywhere on Amazon that it is edition 2 or that there was ever an edition 1.

Anyway - what does that mean for the Goodreads entry (because it still has the same ASIN)? The revised edition has updated images and a slightly modified front cover. I would like the front cover to be updated.

Below is the book page and photo link from Amazon.

Thank you in advance for your efforts,

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....

As the author, you will have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Many thanks! I'll try that out.
