Lisa | 16 comments There is no cover on Amazon either, so I've uploaded my own. The book link is here:

Thank you.

Codex | 3401 comments #1: Obvious placeholder replaced with actual cover from AbeBooks (based on publisher/year/format).

Thanks for your scan; however, due to the tear in the top left corner the AbeBooks cover was preferable.

Lisa | 16 comments Okay, thanks -- good to know AbeBooks can be used as a source. I wasn't sure about that.

Yes, for your reference: Acceptable sources for covers and book data.

Donald Firesmith | 14 comments My book, What Lurks BelowHell Holes: What Lurks Below, has a brand new cover, which replaces the one with fire. Can a librarian please make the switch for me? The new cover is now up on Amazon, B&N, iBooks, etc.

Please provide an ISBN for this paperback. When you created the book record you never specified it.

➜ Also, please do not use the GR Librarian Note feature for submitting requests to librarians—that is not what this feature is intended for. (Existing librarian note posted by you removed.)

Can you please update my cover, Howling At The Stars, it has a new cover. Thank you.

A paperback with that ISBN already exists on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

It would appear that the edition without an ISBN is therefore a subsequent alternate cover edition (or ACE) for the paperback (with the ISBN)—going by publication date. Based on this, the missing notes have been added to the ACE to mark it as such and correct the oversight: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Lastly, an additional ACE has been created for the new cover: What Lurks Below
(Cover added from Amazon).

As author, you can set which edition is shown as the default: How do I set the default edition for a work?

I've combined all editions of Howling at the Stars. The Kindle edition that is currently on Amazon was already on GR. I've added the cover from Amazon: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

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.

For the paperback edition: I've reverted the isbn change on an older paperback edition (please don't change valid data, even when a book is no longer available, add a new edition instead) and added the latest paperback edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
