I self published this book in 2013 and posted it here on Good Reads. It is now being published and I need this version of the book to be removed from this website.

Can the Librarian please remove it for me? If not, can at least the cover and publishing information be removed?

Thank you for your help.

Karen Lechelt | 2 comments Thank you for the advice, but my problem is that the version of the book on GR is a version I self published. The book is a little different being published by imprint and I need to remove all older versions...legally I'm obligated. At the very least I need the cover deleted since it no longer looks anything like the one on GR.

Goodreads is not a bookseller; it is a database. We do not delete records of out of print books.

What you can do is set the new edition as the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how:
