Taylor | 2 comments For the book, The Dark Net by Jamie Bartlett, the page for the paperback edition published by Melville House has the wrong cover - it's not even a cover, just a stupid Amazon 'No image available' image. This is the page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

And here is a link to the publisher's website with the correct edition cover: http://www.mhpbooks.com/books/the-dar...

The cover is the same for the Melville House hardcover and paperback editions.

Hope Irving (hope_irving) | 14 comments Hey, the covers on the first two books on my series have been changed by a librarians. The new covers appear in the alternate edition section but whenever someone mentions my books or I go to my profile or I go to either book pages, it's still the older covers that are displayed (smaller images or the image "per default"). Could you do something so that the updated covers show instead of the older ones? Thanks so much for your help.

Librarians can't change which book is showing on your author page or in the search.
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.
How to set the default edition.

ETA: Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have.
