E. Stoops (estoops) | 5 comments Dear Librarians, Pocket in the Seaneeds to have the correct book cover -- the one it is showing right now is the old cover, of which only about 15 were printed and most all were given to a special group of people. How can I get you the correct image for this book?

Amara Tanith (aftanith) We don't change covers, but we can add an alternate cover edition for you. In order to do that, we'll need a link to the new cover on a non-bookseller site and the exact ASIN(s) and/or ISBN(s) with which the new cover should be associated.

Assuming it is the edition with an ISBN currently listed, you (E.), as the author, can upload the cover image to that edition directly.

The no-ISBN edition will be the cover that shows up for as long as it is the one shelved by more users.


message 4: by E. (new)

E. Stoops (estoops) | 5 comments Okay. When I go to the book page, it does not give me the option to upload a new cover, only a picture related to the book (which expressly says it is NOT for book covers.


message 5: by E. (new)

E. Stoops (estoops) | 5 comments *facepalm* okay, I figured it out and then promptly uploaded the wrong image. Can someone delete that so I can try again on (this would be the paperback edition.) I'm sorry. My computer gives CRAP previews.

Better?

E. Stoops (estoops) | 5 comments Yes! Thank you very much. I appreciate it.

message 9: by Sherri (new)

Sherri Hayes | 27 comments My book is not yet available through my publisher until July 26th, however, it was loaded onto Goodreads by a reader and I added the working cover to it. We are now about a month and a half from release, and the final cover has been approved. It is slightly different from the one that is loaded onto Goodreads and I'd like to get that updated. When I go into my author dashboard for the book, I see where it says "delete photo" but when I click on it, it says I don't have the authorization and need to be a Goodreads Librarian.


message 10: by Amara (new)

Amara Tanith (aftanith) If you provide us with a link to the cover or upload it as one of your photos, someone can take care of it for you.

Replaced with the version on your website.


message 12: by Sherri (new)

Sherri Hayes | 27 comments The new version isn't up on my webite yet, but it is up on my publisher's site. http://ph.thewriterscoffeeshop.com/bo...


message 13: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

Also created distinct editions (including ISBNs) for the paperback and ebook.


message 14: by Amara (last edited Jun 12, 2012 11:20AM) (new)

Amara Tanith (aftanith) I'll admit I had to stare at the two images for a while before I spotted the difference between them, but it's fixed now. :)

Ok, replaced on both editions.

The picture on this book's page clearly isn't the book's cover. Could someone find it?


message 17: by lafon حمزة (new)

lafon حمزة نوفل (lafon) | 3557 comments I put an incredibly low quality image file for the cover. But at least it's the right image.


message 18: by Sherri (new)

Sherri Hayes | 27 comments Thanks. :) Yeah, it's just her eye color, but I still feel the readers will notice which is why we changed it.


message 19: by Sandi (new)

Sandi Thank you lafon!

Jason Morrow (jasondmorrow) | 11 comments Hi there,
The Reckoning needs it's correct book cover: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...

Here is the link to the Image, it's the green one. Do you need anymore information? Thank you SO MUCH for your help!

How did you do it? I'm in the same place as you, seeing where I can edit my book "Martuk ... The Holy", but not seeing where I can update my cover. (makes a frustrated face)

I'm sure it's ridiculously easy, but ...


message 24: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 43578 comments Mod
Jonathan, have you claimed your author profile?


message 25: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments I think I may have sent them a request only today. Have to admit that Goodreads confuses the heck outta me! LOL


message 26: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 43578 comments Mod
It takes 2-3 business days to get those requests approved. You'll get an email when you're approved.

As far as the cover of your book, was it ever published with the cover currently showing on GR?


message 27: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments yeah, published today up on Amazon and Smashwords (waiting for B&N).


message 28: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 43578 comments Mod
The green cover?


message 29: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments Thank you for your guidance, rivka. :)


message 30: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments Yes, the green cover. (I'm in a marketing blitz for TWK, so that's on the brain right now. Apologies) So, the green cover needs to be swapped out for the new cover seen in my avatar (and on the Amazon page).

Guess I should also thank you for your patience, rivka! LOL


message 31: by Amara (last edited Jun 21, 2012 01:17PM) (new)

Amara Tanith (aftanith) If the book was initially published with the green cover, we can't change it. Policy is to create an alternate cover edition.


message 32: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments Thank you, Amara. I've created an Alternate Cover edition with a Librarian's Note and the ISBN at the bottom of my Description. I hope that's correct procedure. :)


message 33: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments If it's not, then I'll upload the correct cover -- as the author -- once I'm accepted into the Author Program.

Yeah, I'm confused, too. ;^)


message 34: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 43578 comments Mod
It doesn't need to be an alternate edition for ISBN 9780615611150, as that was not in the database. I edited accordingly, and combined the two editions.

However, you may wish to also add an alternate cover edition for the Kindle edition, with ASIN B007HPQPV4.


message 35: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments THANK YOU, rivka. Shall do so now. And thank you again for all your help. :)


message 36: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments Created the Alternate Cover edition for Martuk ... the Holy (ASIN included in the Librarian's Note). I assume the new cover for the combined editions (the red and black cover on my avatar) will show up in a little bit? (^~^)


message 37: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 43578 comments Mod
The most shelved edition is what shows up as primary. Currently, that's the green cover; as users shelve the new editions, one of those may become the most popular.


message 38: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Winn (goodreadscomjonathan_winn) | 10 comments Makes sense. Thank you Amara and rivka for all your help. :)


message 39: by Sally (new)

Sally Clements (sallyclements) | 2 comments Hi librarians, I hope someone can help me out here, my book Catch Me A Catch is showing the old cover of a previous version which was with my old publisher, rather than the current version which is self published. When clicking on the cover image, the link is to the correct version, but the cover is wrong. I've tried my best to sort this, with no luck, so would be very grateful for any help!

message 41: by Paula (new)

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments I have created an Alternate Cover edition.

The edition that is shelved the most by users is the default.

Who is the publisher and when was it republished with this cover

We do not delete covers from books that have been published - we create alternate cover editions, I have reversed your changes


message 43: by Sally (new)

Sally Clements (sallyclements) | 2 comments Thanks so much, guys. That's perfect. I am the publisher, and it was republished with this cover on May 3rd 2012.
Thanks again, I appreciate it!


message 44: by Chinoiseries (new)

Chinoiseries | 60 comments Yay, finally the digital edition + cover have been added to the publisher's website :-)

Amanda (gaialover3) | 4 comments Hi all!

I'd love it if someone could update the cover for: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12... for me.

Original cover: http://opinionsofawolf.files.wordpres...

New cover: http://opinionsofawolf.files.wordpres...

I'd do it myself, but I honestly am very confused by the alternate cover edition protocol and figured it'd be better to leave it to the professionals. :-)

Thank you!!

Help. I need my cover updated for a new book that will be released in September. I uploaded the cover, but it's now showing up.
