Erik (erikhenryvick) | 7 comments Hello.

My new book, Rooms of Ruin, still shows the temp cover from the first few days of preorder. The official cover was added a week or so ago, but it hasn't updated here. The book's actual cover can be found on Amazon at

I don't want to add a new edition, as the cover that appears here on Goodreads was never "published" (the book is still in preorder) and no one will ever have a copy with the temp cover.

Thanks in advance for your time and assistance,
Erik Henry Vick

If the final cover isn't in place when the preorder is added to GR there is no facility to add it automatically. You must always ask a librarian to add it or you can add it yourself, though that's trickier if there is a placeholder.
