Please see the following links for information pertaining to your request.
Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users often 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 title/cover edition added here:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

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.

Carolyn, the old ones aren't official covers (if you click on the links for my books you will see what I mean)

Georgeana | 771 comments Since those are obvious placeholders, they can be deleted. I have gone ahead and deleted them.

Rachel, once they are deleted, you can upload the covers yourself, along with any available details (format, ISBN, publisher, etc). Or a librarian can upload them for you if you provide a link to the cover from an acceptable source.
