J. Mulrooney (jmulrooney) My publisher has released a new cover for my book, so I'd like the new cover set as default.

There's an additional wrinkle in that the book has been up as an eBook only for about a year, but is now out in paperback as well - so I've an ISBN to add to the ASIN. Not sure how this works - I would think I want the paperback and eBook to travel together, so don't want to create a new book; but would like the Goodreads entry as it exists to show the new cover and link to the paperback as well as the eBook edition.

Title: An Equation of Almost Infinite Complexity
* Author(s) name(s): J. Mulrooney
ASIN: 9527065291
ISBN-13: 978-9527065297
* Publisher Castalia House
* Publication date: Nov 2016 for Kindle; Paperback: July 20, 2017
* Format: Paperback
* Description:
When the devil moves in next door, Cooper has the same question everyone does: what will it do to the property values? But when Cooper’s new neighbor invites him to a cocktail party, Cooper finds himself in love, gainfully employed, and holding the key to an equation of almost infinite complexity – the equation that predicts the exact date of death for everyone alive.

With the police and Death both stalking him, Cooper is on the brink of losing everything – until the devil appears with an offer that is too good to refuse.

An Equation of Almost Infinite Complexity is a sardonically funny debut novel from J. Mulrooney.

Arenda | 20812 comments 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.

Alternate-cover edition added here:

Also added the paperback edition:

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.

Sandra | 24766 comments #3 sorry but you need to follow the instructions when requesting a new book be added to the database. The only thing on that link was the cover & the date published. Definitely not enough information.
