Kameko Murakami | 2 comments This is a really weird system to update a book's cover, but hi! I need the cover updated on a book I've got listed here, if you could please help me out.

Here's the title:

And here's the new image:

Hope I'm in the right place to get this accomplished.

Goodreads policy is to keep all covers, even those for out-of-date or no longer available editions. Instead, we create alternate cover edition (ACEs), and you as the author have the ability to set the new cover as the default edition. I have created your ACE here:

To set it as the default edition, follow the directions below:

1) Navigate to the book's page. Be sure you have selected the edition you wish to become the default (primary) edition.

2) Click "edit details" below the book's description.

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.

Only Goodreads Authors can set the default edition at this time.

FYI, authors have the ability to create ACEs themselves, but many prefer to just have librarians do it. :)
