Amara Tanith (AFTanith) The book was originally published with the cover shown here, yes? If so, policy is not to change it but to add an alternate cover edition.


message 3: by Duncan (new)

Duncan Gray | 2 comments I just tried that and I get the following.

Sorry, you are already in the author program as Duncan Gray and only one author profile may be claimed at a time. For more information click here.



The new 'title' shows up in the search though, so I'm not sure what happened.


message 4: by Amara (last edited Jun 27, 2012 01:16AM) (new)

Amara Tanith (AFTanith) You accidentally attached the alternate cover edition to the wrong Duncan Gray (your profile is actually Duncan^^Gray--for disambiguation purposes, there are two spaces between your first and last name). I've fixed that and will attach the alternate cover edition to the other editions as soon as my Internet stops acting up. (Unless someone else gets it first.)

Would someone be kind enough to update my book cover, please?

The book is Pike's Quest - http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...

and the link to the new image is http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-jmVZK5LMTvI...

Thank you.

Ellis Vidler (EllisVidler) | 8 comments I have two books sold only by Amazon. I'd like to have the covers added. Here are the AISNs:
Tea in the Afternoon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0068LVVBM
The Peeper http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005FU5HH6

Is this enough information?
Thank you,
Ellis Vidler

Thank you for your help!

We librarians have no control over what edition shows up first in search or on the authors page. The one that is the most shelved edition is the edition that shows up first, so as more people add the one with the newer cover it will be the one that shows up. Also we do not replace covers. Think of goodreads as a library: just as a library wouldn't remove a book because it's cover has been changed or because it's no longer been published, goodreads does the same.


message 24: by Viola (new)

Viola Estrella (ViolaEstrella) | 4 comments Okay, thanks for the explanation!


message 25: by Sabrynne (new)

Sabrynne McLain (sabrynne_mclain) | 1 comments Hi Can you add the cover seen here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

to the paperback edition please?

Thanks.

Paula (Paulaan) | 7016 comments We do not change covers on books once published - alternate cover editions are created

Edit: Your alternate cover editions are here:

http://www.goodreads.com/work/edition...

There is no way to change the default edition, that is one most shelved by readers
