Jeremy Williams | 1 comments So I realized only too late that one of my books covers might be taken as racist. I didn't intend that so I'd like to change it to the updated cover I have rather than add a new edition of the book. It's otherwise the same text.

Would that be possible to do? I can provide the new cover because it's finished and has been uploaded to the amazon version of the book.

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....

Alternate-cover edition added here:

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.
