Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

KDP doesn't update my cover...
« on: December 07, 2014, 01:53:14 AM »
I'm trying to change the cover of my book (Wake Me Up Inside) since Friday. I submitted the new cover on Friday and 24 hours later KPD sent me the email saying it was published. However, today, 12 hours after the email, it's still the old cover on the book page. My KDP bookshelf shows the new cover, though.

It's strange. I've changed covers before, and it was way faster and simpler than this. Has anything like that ever happen to you? Should I contact KDP support or wait a bit longer?

I have had covers take two or three days. I have over fifty books, so I have sent a lot of covers. I have removed half my books now. Amazon is a bit slower doing things lately.

Oh, okay then. Thanks, Michael.
I'll wait and see.

Yeah, for some reason the covers are taking a little while longer. Don't panic yet.

Last summer, one of my book covers took 3 days. Amazon told me changes could take 72hrs. The same with price changes on Amazon sites outside America.

I had to wait almost a week once. They resources are being strained at Amazon  I think.

Thank you all, guys. I guess I'll just have to pretend I'm not anxious at all and wait! :)
