Richard Parry (richard_parry) | 46 comments Hey friends. A book of mine (Night's Fall, https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...), has recently had a new cover for the launch of the complete series.

I've tried to delete the covers in GR, but it's said only a librarian can do that (fair enough). Can someone help me out by nuking the cover so I can replace with the current cover? Thanks :)

Arenda | 19909 comments Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have.

Moved the Kindle edition with the new cover to your profile: 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.

Goodreads policy is to keep all existing editions/covers so that users can shelve the edition they have. Instead, we would create an alternate cover edition, and you can then set the default edition. This post may answer some questions for you https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

Richard Parry (richard_parry) | 46 comments Thanks Cassandra. What we've got here is a second printing with a new cover for the paperback (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...). You can see this live on the Zon (https://www.amazon.com/Nights-Fall-Ch...). Is it possible to get, I don't know, a second cover added or an alternative "2nd printing" release for it?
