Actually, we keep ARC editions and the covers to them. I have marked that edition as an ARC, so you can just add a new edition for the to-be-published ebook edition.

As the author, you will 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's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Fiona Queen | 4 comments Hello,
I recently changed the cover of my novel "Jimmy: The Knight of the Wind (The Jimmy Series Book 1)", but when I created a new edition of the book, no cover came up at all. Here is the link to the new edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... The cover that I want to use is my current profile picture. Thanks for the help!

Never mind, I think I've got it fixed now.

I'm sorry--I don't know how to delete or shut off notifications for these once they're resolved. I was able to get the help I needed. Thanks so much!

Have a great day!

I'm sorry. What have you done here, Tim?

ARCs are not sold. Almost 1,000 readers have not shelved the ARC edition of this book. They are waiting for the Amazon edition.

This "ARC edition" that you have created by typing "Advance review copy" in the edition field will NEVER be available for sale on Amazon--yet there are both Amazon button and "get copies here" buttons on this page.

Please UNDO the incorrect information you have created on my Goodreads page.

I was able to get help from a Goodreads librarian and corrected this, and now you have made it incorrect again.

Please stop "helping" me... I won't make the mistake of typing a question in this group again.

The reviews that have been posted are by my beta readers. They read the Word version of my book. The Word version of my book has no cover.

Thanks.
