Brad Cotton | 4 comments Hi!
So I was premature in uploading a cover for this book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18.... The actual published cover can be found here: http://www.bradcotton.com/wp-content/...

Could someone help me out with the switch?

Thanks!

What is the actual publication date? The book record has Aug 2012.

Amazon shows the "old" picture for the paperback version of this book and the "new" picture for the kindle version.

If this book was released at some point with the "old" picture we will need to create an alternate cover edition.

Covers should never be added as additional photos. Brad, was the book ever published with the blue cover?

Cover change undone. If a book has a new cover, we do not remove the old one (unless it was NEVER published). Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85...

I suppose it was promotion poster, sorry if I was wrong, when Brad confirm, I'll change it.

C. Shell The alt photo was a promotion photo. The font and color of title are not the same at all.

How about the cover, the blue one was printed cover or only promo grafic?

J.J. Grant | 2 comments Hey Everyone,

Looks like I'm in the same boat as most everyone else. The cover seen on Goodreads is not the current cover for my book "The Great Cow Invasion."

The one I prefer and that I'm using now is on Amazon.

Would one of you be so kind as to help upload the new cover?

I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks

JJ Grant
