David | 10 comments Hello,

Can I please have the cover update on Shepherd's Watch?

You can find a better version of the cover here:

It is being taken from our website's press page:

Thank you for your time.

I've updated the book's cover image, as you can see here:

David | 10 comments Hello,

It turns out that I still have some issues.

This version has a lower quality version of the cover (it looks like a photograph) but accurate information about the book:

But this one has a better quality image of the cover, but information is incorrect (publishing date, as well as I am not mentioned as an author):

Can these be combined together with the correct information?

Thank you for your help.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments #4 Publishing date is marked as May 2018 since we use the date a cover was changed and not when it was originally published - in case of alternate-cover editions. If you know when exactly the book was published with new cover, we can set the date to that.

I added your name as secondary author. I'm marking ACE notes and cross-linking both editions so its easy for users to get the info that old cover was also published with 1927756952 / 9781927756959

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments I replaced the cover for old version with a better quality image. While the old one was wonky, this is slightly better (even though it's smaller in size).

We are allowed to replace covers if we are adding better quality version of the exact same image :)

David | 10 comments Thank you, Michael.

It's not a new cover. It only has a sticker on it from a recent award. The publishing date is still March 2017.

David | 10 comments Thank you for the better quality image.

Is there a way we can combine the two version though since they are the exact same book? I'd be happy to get rid of the sticker cover if that is the concern.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Since one has an award sticker and other doesn't, we consider them as different images and hence different editions. Both are combined together already and both will have to stay here

If you can let us know when the edition was printed with award sticker, we can change the pub date from May 2018 to corresponding date

David | 10 comments Okay. I'm still a little confused but I'll follow your lead on the guidelines. 👍

However, to clarify the second part, there never was a second edition and it was never printed with the award sticker. (The stickers were sent to us and we attached them to the original edition.) Its publishing date was March 2017.

David | 10 comments Hello,

I'm hoping I answered your question, since I haven't heard back.
