Z-squared | 8580 comments Chantelle, am I to understand that the cover currently on GOodreads marked 'Pre-Release Edition' has been distributed? Like an 'advanced reader copy'?


message 4: by Chantelle (new) - added it

Chantelle Feasel | 5 comments Nope, it hasn't been released in any way. I only made the book's page as a "pre-release edition" so I could connect with beta-readers on goodreads. Now the book's page will only be for the actual novel which will be released in November. I would like the new cover on there because I will soon be releasing ARC's through a giveaway. Sorry, I feel I answered more questions than you asked... but I hope that clarified :)

Said beta-readers were provided with a copy of the book, right? What cover did those copies have?

Chantelle Feasel | 5 comments Just e-versions of the story, pdf and word, nothing printed and nothing with a cover. Out of curiosity for other works, does a new page need to be made if the book was released with older covers? Or is there another reason you're inquiring?

thanks!

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....

Also, I see the book is an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Quarterfinalist. What cover was used to submit it to Amazon for that contest?

Chantelle Feasel | 5 comments Thank you for all of the information! There would be no reason to create an alternative version, the picture there now was only a placeholder until the real cover was created. And amazon created a separate page for the submission (linked below) and there was no cover it was submitted to the contest with (though amazon did create the cover that's on the link to the submission).

thank you again for the info!
