Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) You can note in the book description that that edition is no longer available and I can create a new cover edition for you (if ever published, the old edition does stay in our database even if no longer published and no longer with a certain publisher).

I just need a non-bookseller link to the new cover (or you can upload to your own profile photos and let me know it's there).

[for new cover policies, see author FAQs at ]

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Will it have a new asin number?

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) I made an alternate cover edition, the author can now choose which edition/cover is featured (on their author page, searches, etc., what goodreads calls the "primary edition" or "default edition.")

For directions, see Author FAQ #4 this group at or help screens at .

Can you send me the link to my new 'To be Maria'?
Because I'm not sure where to find it.


This is it:

You can make the new version into the default/primary edition:

i) Go to the book page of the edition you wish to become the default/primary edition.
ii) Click "edit details" below the book's description.
iii) On the right side of the page about halfway down, click "Set this book as the primary edition for this work".

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Actually, thanks Banjomike.

If new release re-uses same asin, @Deanna, don't need to do anything. Leave the May 2013 with newer cover as an alternate cover edition and done.

If a new asin, that should get added if only so the amazon purchase links work or so any members trying to shelve or search by that asin can find the book.
