Nick Crutchley (nickcrutchley) | 12 comments Hi

I added an alternative cover edition, but it fails to show up in search, even though I set it as the Primary Edition. So, I still get the red cover listed above, rather than the nature spirit cover.



Basically, the cover should not look like The Moment Between Two Thoughts by Nick Crutchley , but the new primary edition....

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

Any help appreciated how I should proceed.

SHould I add a completely new edition and delete ASIN off old books?

I will also have to modify the paperback edition eventually.

Cheers

But surely, when i add book, it should show primary edition?
This lowers Goodreads user experience.

Should I try and add a completely new edition?

Thank you for your help.

Scott | 21304 comments If the edition is here why would you add a new one?

The search is working as intended but feel free to send any comments to support. Librarians can't help with this issue.

Alex | 2739 comments Hmm, I thought the search showed the default edition, when that has been selected? If you have correctly set the default, it may just be a caching issue, which means in 24-48 hours the change should register on the site.

But, as Scott said, this would be an issue for support, not librarians.

The Moment Between Two Thoughts by Nick Crutchley
Hi... you can select an alternative edition... after the search with add book, but people searching generally will get old cover.

however, the new cover does show up on my author page.

May I ask, how does one contact support?
