How long does it take...

Can anyone tell me how long it takes for a new cover to replace an old one?
I redid the cover for my book, (the last one did the story No justice) and have since uploaded the new one, along with fixing a few grammar and spelling errors. It's been over 24 hours and the old cover is still the one I see, the one with the rose, instead of the new cover, which fits better for a romance/mystery book. Everything else uploaded, newer version and price.
Thanks!

Karen

It took about 48 hours... so now I know.
That last cover didn't do the book justice, I'm hoping this one will make people look twice and then want to buy it :)

Karen, re our 'Indie Author's Reviewer Club' , which seems to have gone a bit quiet (maybe because people are reading :) ) I have bought 'Playing Fields' and will read it next.

Thank you Wendy! I actually bought your book a week (or two?) ago but have been busy writing that I haven't gotten to it yet. But I do still intend to read it :)

Oh, thank you too! I'll really look forward to hearing your opinon (I think :) ) I know it's hard to get around to everything. I thought I was busy when only writing but now with marketing etc it's a push!

All the best

Wendy,
Have to ask, did you get it with the new cover? :)

And what do you think of the new cover? Would love to know if you think this one fits with the story... :)

Actually, unfortunately I bought it before, then I saw on your thread about your 1 star review that you had updated the cover and a few typos! No problem to me though. You old cover is simple but looks nice on the Kindle. It's hard for me to say how suitable your new one is as I haven't actually read the book yet, but I do think it has a more professional look. :)

The person who said the font colour was a bit dark probably had a point. The words do get a little bit lost, I think. Perhaps you could do something to make them stand out a bit more.

I will play with the font color, just needed to get it out there. I was having so many problems with that. I do have the 2nd cover done for when I have the 2nd book finished... using the same "model" and this next cover you will see more of her eyes.
I'm so excited to see what the new cover brings :)
