Dobby (dobby0390) | 3678 comments There is no identifying information on that edition, such as format and ISBN/ASIN. Was this perhaps created as an alternate-cover edition when the cover was updated?

Richard Fenton | 14 comments Hi I am the other author, we did add a version so that we could combine the old and new cover. I just tried to add the ISBN 978-0990751823 and that would not work.

Richard Fenton | 14 comments I didn't see the ability to set the version with the skull cover as the default when I went into Edit Details. ??

Arenda | 20237 comments Since there is a givewaway attached to this book, best to ask Goodreads Support.
Librarians can't help with giveaways. Changes to the book might mean the giveaway has to be approved again.
Support should be able to change which cover shows on the giveaway.

In that case, you needed to add what we call an alternate-cover edition. See Author FAQ and Adding an alternate-cover edition.

I don't have time to work on these now, but I will fix them later if someone else doesn't do it first. I didn't look at all the editions closely, but it looks as though this might affect multiple books in the Onyx Webb series.

Richard, only the primary author can see the edit link.
