Preeti (preetisunaina) | 39 comments Hi, The kindle edition of Those People has the pre-publication cover still showing. The cover is supposed to be the same as Those People

Those People by Louise Candlish

Thanks.

Albert | 2407 comments A little help requested from other librarians. There are actually three Kindle versions of this book on Goodreads, all created close in time to one another. Only one of the ASINs is available on Amazon and that edition has the new cover. Is this a case where a merge is needed?

Emily | 14471 comments No, in most cases, you would delete the existing cover since it is "Coming Soon" and replace it with the current one for that ASIN on Amazon. ETA: *But not for this one.* Sorry for my misunderstanding!

This appears to be a completely promotional image, but it never hurts to ask if any covers went out with this image. If we are not sure, we can make an alternate cover edition that readers can choose.

Emily | 14471 comments If the Kindle edition has an ASIN, then it is unique, and should not be merged.

amazon.com/dp/B07H13XGWB
amazon.com/dp/B07H15LG9Q"


And those have no bearing on this edition. I did not look before, but I see now that this cover was not uploaded by a user, but by Amazon. So, in this case, an ACE would be required. This should always be checked in the changelog.

I wouldn't take a chance if it was available on Amazon for sale with that cover.
If someone else has a different understanding, please weigh in.

Albert | 2407 comments Complete. Alternate cover editions created for the two Kindle editions that were still showing the original cover:

And here is the link showing all of the Kindle editions:

Thanks. I am sorry to be a pain but there is one more thing that has to be changed, please. The publication date is showing as today when it should be 27 June 2019.

Is listed an an alternate cover edition and should be deleted. The cover is wrong. It's a placeholder cover and not the cover for the book.

When a new cover edition is added, the publication date on Goodreads would be the date the new cover became available, or our closest approximation thereof.

I suggested the ACE because the pre-publication cover was added automatically by Amazon and never updated. My understanding was that in that case, we should add an ACE to be on the safe side. If someone else wants to note otherwise they are welcome to weigh in.


message 15: by JSWolf (new)

JSWolf | 649 comments Why have an ACE listing when it's not an actual cover but a placeholder?


message 16: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 24791 comments It depends on whether that cover was distributed. At this stage we can't tell, so add an ACE to be on the safe side.
