Melody (melodyklink) | 4 comments I'm hoping to have my ARC edition cover replaced by the actual cover of my book, which releases later this month. The finalized cover was not complete at the original time.


This is the actual, final cover. Please, and thank you!

Empress (the_empress) This one is a bit confusing for me.

ARC edition is an advanced reader copy and a placeholder cover is just that.

My questions are:

1. Have you given out ARC editions with the placeholder cover?
2, Do you have an ISBN for the edition?

Melody (melodyklink) | 4 comments 1) Yes, since there were unexpected issues with the cover at the time for ARCs to go out, it went out with that. Now that the cover is complete and it's nearly time for launch, I was hoping to get it updated.

2) The isbn for paperback launch is:
ISBN-13: 978-1546973058
ISBN-10: 1546973052

(This edition was not pre-orderable, so it may not show up at this time.)

The GR book page was made in advance of launch to accommodate beta readers, ARC readers, and reviewers who had asked about it. Now that we are closer to launch, I wanted to ensure the book has the correct cover, and it all matches when other links go live.

Melody (melodyklink) | 4 comments And since the "This topic is about [book]" doesn't seem to appear on my phone, this is the book in question, just in case:

When ARCs went out, it had a placeholder cover on ebook edition.

Empress (the_empress) Thanks Melody,

I have kept the ARC edition, so that people that have that edition can shelve and review it. I have also created a new edition for the actual cover for the ISBN edition here.

You can make the ISBN edition default by following the steps described here. That will cause the new edition to show up on searches and the series page.

I also added book 3 and the omnibus to your series page:

Melody (melodyklink) | 4 comments Thank you for your help, and for taking the time to do so.
