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 was already added, I've added some more details to it: 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.

It was already in the series: https://www.goodreads.com/series/2066..., but prequels only show on the series page, not on the series section of your author page.

Also please note: ebooks that are sold on Amazon (with ASIN) should be listed as Kindle edition. I've merged the ebook with publisher Amazon Kindle into the Kindle edition.

I've reverted the changes against policy on the paperback edition. Please don't remove valid details (like isbn) or change format for an existing edition.
