Kay Ling (goodreadscomkaylling) | 1 comments Someone mentioned that I could ask a Goodreads librarian to update my cover image for Beyond the Forest. Shortly after publication I had the overly dark cover lightened, and I changed the typography. My book has recently been entered in a contest (SPFBO - Self-published Fantasy Blog-Off) so I'm particularly anxious to have the updated cover image appear. Thanks in advance.

#1: Needs an alternate cover edition. Leaving for another librarian. I set up a series for you.

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.
Here are the instructions: How to set the default edition.
