Anthony Moignan | 4 comments Hi guys,

Can someone please help me with swapping my old book cover for my new one? It's the same except I've now added a review quote :)

Goodreads link here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

New cover can be found here on my Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Long-Goodbye...

Thank you!

Hi Justine, thanks for your help. I've just checked my page and what you've added is now listed as a second edition (so I have two books showing as available now) - is there any way of just editing the cover of the first edition so only one book is listed on the site? I'm worried about people reviewing the second edition and then the reviews will be split!

Thanks Emy - forgive my ignorance, I'm pretty new to this :)

The new link which Justine shared to the second edition w/updated cover has zero ratings/reviews? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

Emy (emypt) | 5038 comments Combined with the other editions (not sure why it was separated off before). It might take a few hours to update, but all reviews should now be visible on all editions. In the event that you wanted to see reviews relating to a specific edition you can use the filters to those edition.

I notice you have an edition marked as Kindle but with an ISBN. Can you confirm whether your ebook is available via sources other than Amazon?

EDIT: Right, confirmed that the change from ASIN to ISBN was made by yourself - please DON'T change book data yourself, let us do it for you. :)
Also fixed a few errors in the creation of the new edition:
* The publication date for the New Cover Edition is now set to 1st June 2018 as the date is taken from the cover not the original release
* Added reciprocal links and Librarian Notes as appropriate so readers can easily find the cover they want to shelve.

EDIT2: Merge pending for extra random edition created with new cover.
