Kaitlynn | 5 comments Kaitlynn AislingMenacingWhen I first started working on my series, the novels were titled with alliteration and the series' name was The Malaika. I have since finalized the novels as being part of the Seren Hearts series, and the titles are now all one word titles. I've edited what I can from my author dashboard, but I would like to fix the cover of Menacing (formerly Menacing Mastery) to reflect it's new title on goodreads. This is the link to the book's page on Amazon for the picture: http://www.amazon.com/Menacing-Seren-...

Arenda | 19993 comments Reverted the changes made to the title.

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....

Alternate-cover edition added here:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

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

Viji | 136 comments In amazon.com, I find a different cover for the book
Deadly Gamble (Charlie Parker Mystery Book 1) by Connie Shelton
I am giving below the link for this in Amazon.com (Kindle Store):

http://www.amazon.com/Deadly-Gamble-C...

Going by the Kindle e-book cover for ASIN: B002OHD1WQ, I started this book for a GR challenge which requires a residence on cover. I find that the GR book cover for the ASIN: B002OHD1WQ is different from that of the book mentioned in Kindle Store for the same ASIN reference. Could you please add this cover also?

Thanks.

Looking at this link here: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1394...

It appears things still aren't quite right. The title of the second book in the series should be Menacing (not Menacing Mastery) and should be Seren Hearts #2, (not Malaika #2). I understand that old editions remain active on the site for bookshelf reasons, but it doesn't look like the series are grouped together correctly. It's not just the cover that changed, the title and series name changed too. The first book, Primal, appears to be displayed correctly. However, even when I attempt to search for Menacing (book 2), it doesn't come up, only Menacing Mastery, the old title.
