Patricia Eddy (patricia_eddy) | 18 comments Hello!

Could a librarian help a girl out? I've updated a number of my covers over the past few months and now I have multiple editions of several of my books.

Secrets in Blood

This is the old cover. The new cover can be seen on Amazon here ( and on my website here ( and the book cover can be found here as a downloadable file (

Ideally, the multiple editions would be combined, but I don't know if that's important or not (I can be a little OCD). :-)

I also need updates done for three other books. Is it better to start a new thread or just put them all here?

Arenda | 19983 comments The editions are already combined:

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, which was already done for this title: and for Kindle and paperback.

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.
