Jake Vander-Ark (jakevanderark) | 1 comments Hi there! I'm an author, and I would like to update four of my five covers. I haven't finished updating my website yet, but I put the files on imgur. Is this okay since I wrote the books?

If not, please let me know and I can upload them to my site asap! These are the books:

The Accidental Siren looks the same, but the new one is the correct size that will match the others. Thank you so much!

We do not replace covers of published books on GR as users would want to shelve the exact editions they have including the covers. We create alternate-cover edition (ACE) instead.

As the author, you have access to set which edition would be default (that comes up on author page, user searches, etc) for each of your books by following these steps.

Created ACEs for your books as follows:

1. Accidental Siren - Kindle (B008A6LJNI).

I compared the current cover on paperback (9781105766565) with this Kindle ACE and the covers look almost similar to the naked eye. I can create an ACE for paperback as well but users may not notice the difference between the two covers. Since you want the cover to be updated for uniformity with other books, how about making the new Kindle edition as ACE which would mean this book's cover would still be uniform with other covers on your author page, series page, etc?

If you prefer, we can certainly create a new ACE for paperback too. Please let us know :)

2. Lighthouse Nights - Kindle (B00557U33W), Paperback (9781257807611)

3. Brandywine Prophet - Kindle (B00914AIFI), Paperback (9781105999116)

4. Put The Cat In The Oven - ebook (9781476000893)

If there are any ASINs/ISBNs for which I missed adding new covers, please let us know and one of us will create alternate-cover editions.
