E.M. Bosso (embosso) | 1 comments Hi,
Recently I changed the title and cover of my book "Cherisse Uncut" to S.M.A.F.U on the Amazon Platform, but it has not changed in Goodreads. I have added it as a new book and had planned on deleting the old title. I now realize I may have wanted just to edit the original title instead and uploaded the new cover. So in short... think I messed it up. Can someone help me with this? What do I need to do?

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 and

Please also note:
In some cases, a book may be originally published under a pen name, but then later reissued under the author's original name. When this happens, the author listed for any and all editions should be the author name the book was originally published under - so the reissued edition would need its primary author name changed to the originally published pen name, with the additional name added as secondary for all editions with it on the cover. Doing this will allow the various editions to be combined.

All edits contrary to policy have been corrected.
