Valerie Thomas Hi Librarians!
GR is telling me I don't have permission to delete the cover for my book, Auburn: Outcasts and Underdogs (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...), and to my understanding I'll have to delete the cover and reupload in order to update it. I was wondering if someone would be willing to delete the cover for me so that I can upload the new one. It's also available here (http://vtothetom.com/Cover1.png), on my author site.

Valerie Thomas Sorry, I also wanted to add that since the novel is currently being reviewed as an ARC, I believe it falls under that exception... Should I wait to update it until the novel is officially released?

Not exactly. We (or you) can mark the ARC cover as being an ARC (in the edition field), and if it had an ISBN we would move it to the new edition with the new cover. That's the part that's an exception, as with a published book with a new cover, the ISBN stays with the original edition.
