Suzanna Esther (suzannaesther) | 2 comments Hi,

I have no idea how this works. I find this way of editing my book extremely complicated in how this process works. Why not simply let the author be able to change the title and cover image but apparently there is no other way to do this than here:

I recently added my book '2020 Kamp Alpha - de pest meester' on Goodreads but for some reason the title was not added as the title but the ISBN number.

See https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

How do i change the name of the book and how do i add a cover image?

Thanks in advance for your time and effort.

Kind regards,

Suzanna

Thx, Andrew! I am also editing the contents of my first book 'Wervelstof Oklahoma' but i can't seem to delete the cover image and upload a new cover image. Only a librarian has those rights apparently. Any idea how i can manage to get that changed?

Sandra | 26088 comments You don't delete any cover images. People want to shelve the editions they bought/read.

You use the link - Add an alternate cover edition. That will create a new edition by moving the asin/isbn and you simply add the page number and the new cover.

Then make the new cover the default edition. This will then show the new cover on your author page.

That's when the same isbn is used. When there is a new isbn for the new edition, just add a new edition. (And then follow the instructions for making it the default edition).
