Chris Anderson (cnanders) | 6 comments Thank you in advance.

We are about to launch a new book and did some re-branding on our book covers.

Please update the cover of "Hooktheory II" https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

to this image: https://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.hooktheo...

Also, please update the cover of "Hooktheory I" https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

to this image:

Thank you

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3607 comments What is the source of the cover images?

It appears to be Amazon, but both Goodreads links are to ebooks. Amazon ebooks are Kindle editions, with an ASIN identifier, not an ISBN.

Chris Anderson (cnanders) | 6 comments The image I want to use for the cover are simply hosted in an Amazon storage bucket. Has nothing to do with an Amazon book or anything.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3607 comments OK, thanks. I still need to know the source of the cover images, please.

Chris Anderson (cnanders) | 6 comments Hi Dobby,

I'm the founder of Hooktheory LLC, which wrote, owns and produced both of the books in question (Hookthoery I and Hooktheory II). The images are sourced from us (Hooktheory LLC)

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3607 comments Thanks, Chris, that's what I needed to be sure we weren't going to be in copyright violation. That's something Goodreads takes very seriously, and I don't want to lose my librarian status. :-)

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 Author FAQ and Adding an alternate-cover edition.

Here is the new alternate-cover edition for Hooktheory I .

The primary author, Ryan Miyakawa, can set the default edition — that is, the one that comes up in searches by title and shows on the author profile. Here's how to do that.

I added the cover to Hooktheory II, as that edition did not have a cover. I also removed the external links, per Goodreads policy on allowable material in descriptions.
