Julia Sykes | 17 comments Hi there

I've been going through the threads here and just want to double-check that I fully understand this whole book cover changing process. Do I need to create a new addition of the book as though I am manually creating a new book? And then do I post here asking for a librarian to merge the two listings so that I can set the new addition as the default?

This is the current GR listing: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17... .

Here is the new cover: http://amzn.com/B00CZJYZGE .

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Julia xxx

Marcin Lubke (werewolf_pl) | 49 comments If all you want to do is change the cover, there's no need to create new edition. A librarian can delete the old cover and then upload new one.

Creating a new edition is needed for alternate cover version.

Monique (kadiya) | 1099 comments If a book has been published, and this book has been, an alternate cover edition is ALWAYS required.

Julia, you have hit the nail on the head so to speak. That is exactly what you need to do.

Julia Sykes | 17 comments Great, thanks so much! I'll get on that now. Also, I have no idea why I wrote "addition" instead of "edition". I'm cringing just looking at that. Time for more coffee, I think...

Alt cover edition added: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18...

Julia, as the author, you have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/31...
