Danielle Girard (daniellegirard) | 22 comments I've got new covers for 9 of my books. Can you tell me how to get the old covers replaced?

Thank you,
Danielle Girard

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3544 comments With this many new covers, I suggest that you use a separate message for each book. You can request the additions under this thread if you want.

This is the information we'll need for each book:

• Goodreads link for each edition
• link to new cover image from an acceptable source (Amazon, for example)

Arenda | 19921 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....

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.

Danielle Girard (daniellegirard) | 22 comments Thank you. I'm having trouble seeing where the "edit details" is. I am going to the book itself (not through my dashboard, correct?) I can see all the cover images below but no "edit details."

Sorry for the trouble.

Yes, you should go to the book page of the new edition.
I've made a screenshot where you can find "edit details": https://www.goodreads.com/photo/user/...
It is a light grey link.

Please note: the additional photo section of a book page is not intended for covers. I have removed them from there.
