Sophia Heart | 7 comments I posted the below story on a free online writing website (Wattpad):

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

It has never been published, but I am planning on self-publishing next year with a new title, new cover, and new description. Can I get this unpublished version deleted, or would it be possible to edit it so that it corresponds with the published version. This is what the published version looks like:

https://www.amazon.com/Above-all-Else...

Also, not sure if you'll be able to help, or know who I should follow up with, but I've submitted a request to join the Author Program and have yet to hear back. What is the average turnaround time?

Cheers.

Posting a story on Wattpad is considered published on Goodreads. I added the relevant publication data to the existing edition.

I also added the new edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Now that your book has publication data listed, I suggest reapplying for Goodreads Author status.

Sophia Heart | 7 comments Thank you very much! I’ll be reapplying.

Sophia Heart | 7 comments Also, although you cannot delete the older edition, would it be possible to remove the old book cover? It was a fan made cover and I do not have any rights to it. Thank you.

Was it ever up on Wattpad? I see there is a different cover there now.

Sophia Heart | 7 comments Yes, it was up on Wattpad for a bit. I don’t know if it is a copyright image so I’d prefer to not have it up.

For legal issues, you'll need to use the Contact Us link on the Help page. I suggest including a link to this thread for context.
