Changing it to what? Is it a new edition?

Elizabeth Darcy (nciacchella) | 51 comments No, the content of the book hasn't change, but I've changed the book's cover.

Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....

As the author, you will 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...

Elizabeth Darcy (nciacchella) | 51 comments I added the new cover and one of the librarians combined the editions, so the new cover now shows along with the old ones. I want to set up the new cover as the default, but when I tried to follow the instructions, I hit a problem at this step because I do not see this option on the right side:

3) On the right side of the page, click "Set this book as the primary edition for this work". It's about midway down the page.

The edition that should be the default is this one:Contributor, not the blue one with the girl on the cover.

Only the book's author will see that option.

If that is you, you'll need to be logged in to the correct account.

Elizabeth Darcy (nciacchella) | 51 comments It is me, under a different pen name. I'll try logging in to that account.
