Pamela | 14 comments I looked at the help section but I still can't figure this out. I need to replace 6 book covers. How can I do this myself and not bug somebody else?

Thank you!

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: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Thank you:

I read the instructions. What I don't understand is how to make the page with the new cover come up in order to pick that as the default.

Suggestions?

The new edition has to be added before it can be selected.
