Samuel | 7 comments Hi,

I'd love a librarian to create a new cover for The Shattered Orb The Shattered Orb with the following cover:
www.samuelegreen.com/wp-content/uploa...

All the details are the same. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks!

Arenda | 20005 comments Were any copies -- including Advanced Reader Copies, either print or electronic -- distributed with the old cover?

Samuel | 7 comments There was an electronic sample distributed with the old cover, but it contained less than 15% of the finished text and will be changed substantially before publication.

Arenda | 20005 comments Using the cover on an ARC is considered published on Goodreads. However, 15% seems more like a sample.
(There are no reviews on Goodreads, only 1 want-to-read.)

I'd like some advice from other librarians/staff on what to do here. (If the ARC is only 15% is should not be combined with the complete book anyway.)

Did this sample have an ISBN or ASIN associated with it, other than the one that applies to the full book? Was the sample distributed via Amazon's sample distribution process, or via other means?

Samuel | 7 comments Sample was distributed through an online distribution service called InstaFreebie. The sample had no ISBN or ASIN associated with it, other than the ASIN it was a pre-release sample of.

Thanks for the additional details.

That's a sample, not an ARC, and it's fine for us to change the (still pre-pub) cover.

Replaced the pre-publication cover with the cover from Amazon.

thanks Rivka

Needs a replacement cover or the cover resized as the white borders are warping it.


message 21: by Renske (new)

Renske | 10798 comments 20 Removed white border form image, as the image on Amazon is also not very good.
