Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi there,

I have just had all my covers redesigned and I tried to update the covers myself but it says only a librarian can do that. So I need to update the covers (and delete the olds ones) for all three of the books linked to below, and I also need to attribute the book Sean Freeman to my author profile so I can update/correct the details listed. You can find all my new covers here: http://kerryjdonovan.com/ but please let me know if you need access to larger files.

Thank you very much,
Kerry

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi, thank you for the reply, but this ISBN doesn't correspond to any of my books.

Thanks,
Kerry

Sean Freeman is on your profile; I added the cover.

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....

Is the new cover for Ellis Flynn both for Kindle and paperback edition?
ETA: I see Amazon has the new cover both for Kindle and paperback.

Looks complete to me.
Please start a new thread for further requests, as this one is linked to a specific author.

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hi, I can see that the books have been updated to show a different edition, with a few incorrect details etc which I hope to be able to update. Since this is not a different edition, just a new cover, is it possible to merge these editions together or at least have the book entry show the new covers?

Thanks,
Kerry

lethe | 13658 comments #7 As Arenda explained, GR keeps all published covers in the database. But you can make the new covers the default, see https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Oh that's great, thanks very much for that. The new covers are really nice and I want people to see them :-)

I've also finished updating all the other info, so I think everything's sorted now.

Thanks very much for your help!
Kerry

Kerry Donovan (kerryjdonovan) | 22 comments Hello,

I'm sorry but what is there now is not the full title of my books. The full title includes "The DCI Jones Casebook" as published. So I have corrected that. I've also corrected the series order as this was for some reason altered to show the wrong order.

Thank you,
Kerry
