J. Daniels (authorjdaniels) | 17 comments Hello,
My book cover recently got a face-lift and I wanted to upload the newer version onto Goodreads. How do I do that?

Natasha Primaditta (primaditta) | 164 comments The updated cover should be made as separate edition of the book. You should upload the new cover first somewhere on the web (ie. upload it on your GR profile picture page) then post the link here. Also, the details of the book, such as the ISBN for librarians's note of an alternate cover edition.

I've uploaded the new cover to my profile pictures. I'd like to delete the old one if possible. What else do I have to do now?

J, from the link I've posted above, there were these passage regarding adding new cover of a work with same ISBN number:
it is not possible to upload multiple covers of a book, and because changing the cover of an existing edition is a violation of Goodreads policy. Some people may have added the existing edition with that specific cover because it is the one they own. If you want to have an edition shelved with your specific cover, then it is accepted procedure to create a new edition with your cover art.

Which means, I cannot delete the cover as per your request since it would violate Goodreads policy. Instead, I will create an alternate cover edition of your book..
Just to make sure; I believe this cover has the same ASIN, right?

Nope, it will work just fine as another edition of your book. :)

Reminder: all editions of a book must have the original author name as primary author.

Fixed.

J. Daniels (authorjdaniels) | 17 comments Okay. Can someone now make my new cover photo that I uploaded my profile photo instead of my old one? It won't let me delete the old profile photo.
