Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Hi Autumn,
we are keeping all published editions, so I reverted the change of title on the existing edition.
I've seen you already added new cover edition and moved ASIN.
I corrected the data on new edition and moved ASIN from ISBN field to ASIN field.

What you might want to do now is set up a new edition as default one - that is, the one that comes up in searches by title and shows on your author profile. Here's how to do it:

Aza (kungfumom) | 1 comments Hi, I am Aza, the author of the debut novel 'You Don't Know Me' and would appreciate someone changing the cover image by merging the two books. The old one has a figure walking on snow on it and the new one has the OWL cover.

I have added the new cover as a new book (was the only option) so please change the ASIN back to ASIN (Its now on the ISBN spot as Good reads would not allow me to use the Asin twice) And then please merge the book of I'll lose all my reviews and ratings.


Thank you guys.

Goodreads does not delete out-of-print books or editions. Please see http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/22... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/32...

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. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....

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's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Thank you very much. Question, when searching my author name, how do i get the new title to show up, as opposed to only showing the old? Can i not delete the old and use the new? This seems to hinder my new title being searchable under my author name. As in, when searching my author name, only the old title Traction appears in the drop down. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you

That's what setting the default edition is meant to change. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...
