As you may have read on this thread, Amazon is currently forcing most books to start at the first page of text after
the Table of Contents, even those books made professionally/commercially with start locations set in the frontmatter. Amazon's usage details indicate that most readers skip immediately to the first chapter, or a prologue, if one exists, so that's where the start location is set. If you want your start location to appear earlier, you can try setting either the "text" or "start" location (depending upon what formatting you're doing) at the beginning, but it's almost impossible to force the SRL at the cover, if that's what you are trying to do. The reader, after all, has the "go to cover" option with one click.
