I went into my author’s dashboard on Goodreads and added the novel I just published on Amazon KDP. I provided the information they asked for: title, sorting title, ASIN, etc. The novel got added but not with the cover I uploaded to KDP.

The title is “High School Massacre” and there was already a book by that name in the Goodread’s database. But I supplied the ASIN so it should have known the specific one I was adding. And the cover seems to be one Goodreads generated.

What did I do wrong? Or what step did I miss? And how do I fix it?


Wow. That sucks. WHat you need to do is contact the librarian group that manages the uploads. I have lost my instructions for doing so, though.

The Librarian group is really good about getting stuff done on the website. So they should be able to help you without much fuss. I love the site too, and have worked with the librarian group for a few reasons in the past.

Can you edit the book details and then add/replace the cover there? I’m assuming you claimed it, if it’s in your author dashboard. This should be a very easy fix. You just need a file of the book cover to upload. I’ve noticed that every time I add one of my books to Goodreads I need to manually upload the cover.

That did it. I missed the uploading the cover image when I put in the details. I thought it would get it from Amazon when I put in the ASIN.


What is good read?
