I’m currently having the same problem, strangely enough the same image from one book will work as uploaded (so two different books with the same cover as a test), and yet the newer cover won’t show. Both different images share the same dimensions and file size, so, it’s odd to not have one show up.

At first I thought there was a reason stopping me from having two books with covers. Though I found that wasn’t the case. Then I thought I’d use the working cover as a template, and put the image of the other on top. Which didn’t work either.

I’ve worked at it for hours, uploaded once every hour for a bit, let something load first before submitting to see if maybe it was an invisible loading bar. Nothing on the site tells me if anything goes wrong, it simple says "____ updated!" and the cover is blank.

Since this is a problem experienced by multiple people for a period of time, maybe there’s a bug in the coding that makes uploading covers tedious and dependent on factors unknown to the user.

I’ll keep at it till it shows, oh well

I was going to say, usually it takes a minute or two for a new cover to appear. :) Glad it’s sorted!

Hi there.  Thanks for the great platform to get started as a new writer. I am experiencing some technical issues with my cover art. I uploaded an image with title included before I realized that I had to resize it. I then uploaded another in a 400:600 pixel format and now have no cover whatsoever.  Can someone a bit smarter than me with technology help me out?

I’m going to attempt to upload a slightly modified image in the proper aspect ratio, but if this doesn’t fix the issue, my technical inexperience will be exhausted.

Thanks for the help!

*Idiot edit* -- It seems that the only thing lacking here was patience. By the time I’d finished whining like a spoiled child, the issue settled itself. Thanks for having a system that’s smarter than me.
