Parker Avrile (parkeravrile) | 3 comments I changed the cover of my book a week or two ago but it is not updated on Goodreads:

Can someone fix this for me? Thanks.

Arenda | 20779 comments 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:

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.

Looks like it worked. When i go to your author page, the new cover is showing.

Hope Irving (hope_irving) | 14 comments Hi,
I just changed my covers for both my books in my series, The Black Angel Book series, and I'd like some help so that they'd be updated and appear instead of the previous ones.
Here are the links on Amazon:
> Twice Upon A Time (the Black Angel Book series, #1): https://www.amazon.com/Twice-Upon-Tim...
> Deadly Ever After (the Black Angel Book series, #2): https://www.amazon.com/Deadly-Ever-Af...

Thanks so much for your help! Take care Hope
