I downloaded my own book onto my ipad into a Kindle app. The book came through fine, but I'm very disappointed that the cover doesn't download with the book. I really would like to see my front and back covers with the book, as I would with any book.

Hi AlisonPratt - if your eBook includes a marketing image, that is what will be downloaded and displayed on your Kindle bookshelf. Just as eBooks do not technically have pages, they also do not have covers - in the sense that we are accustomed to. I would suggest that you add a page either as a forward or at the end of your eBook the includes author information (About the Author) or other details you would like to share with your readers. Congratulations on the publication of your eBook. That is a huge accomplishment.
