Book cover won't change

I changed my book cover and it won't change on Amazon for the paperback version. When I click on the author's page the updated cover shows but not when you search for the book. How do I get the cover to show up in all searches?

Did your new cover show up every once in a while when it was searched? Oh, and I'm most likely going to change it yet again. Not happy with this cover either. What are your thoughts about covers with pictures versus covers that are more of a sketch or cartoony?

the kindle edition you change with amazon. but the paper back you need to change with create space since that is where you started off from.?

any changes you make through the kdp, be sure you revert to the create space modle to change like wise. the printed book ( paper back ) can take 5 days to change over)

I haven't changed the kindle version yet because I wanted to make sure I really like the new cover. I did change the paperback through Createspace and didn't realize it may take up to 5 days to change on Amazon. The last changes I made were updated immediately but they weren't cover changes. Thank you!

Well, mine is a sketch and I only did it because the character is an artist. I like all kinds of covers!

Well, neither of my covers are updated yet. Createspace paperback version or kindle. I have approvals from both.

Any feedback on my new cover would be great! The link is the in the first post on this thread. The blue cover with the eye is the original. I'm torn on what to do for a cover. I am also thinking of a whole different strategy that has two hands reaching for each other with a stormy cloudy sky background.

So my paperback version finally changed but the kindle version did not. I updated this yesterday morning and got an approval. How long should this take?

relax if you have changed it, give it time. i updated one book it passed through and even the preview was updated, but the download was still the old version . Give it time to correct itself.

Thank you Steven for telling me to relax, as soon as I decided to take your advice, it switched to the correct cover! :)
