...I would advise waiting a few hours.

My new book went live yesterday, but it isn't displaying a cover, and I've heard from several other authors that they're having the same problem, so it appears to be hitting a lot of books.

In the meantime, sit back, twiddle thumbs, eat some prawns, etc.

You're brilliant, Kathleen. I could kiss you, but I have morning breath, and it would be weird.

Yes...right...weird... *shifty eyes*

Alas, it doesn't do anything for the missing cover in search, but at least readers won't be confused by the empty box on the page.

Yep, mine has fixed itself as well.
Thank God, it just looked weird with that white box.
Mine just fixed itself too. Too bad it gave me a heart attack first with the stupid white boxes so I re-uploaded it and now it's in review. *headdesk*

So what's your new release, Brina? I don't see it in your author profile.

I updated three books today (each with new covers) and all 3 times I hit publish, I got an error message. It took 2-3 more tries...is this normal with Amazon these days?

Yeah, that's pretty typical behavior, at least for the last few weeks. It's a beast of its own, though. I don't think it's connected to the cover snafu.

Thanks, that's good to know. I was wondering if it was my ancient computer or something to do with Firefox.

I've had that problem several times in the last few weeks.

And the new cover is still not showing after about 36 hours.

Well, because SM said it was ok I went ahead and hit 'publish' under a pen name for the first time. Next week around this time I will be hitting it again.
