Mel Gough (melgough) | 10 comments I had a more professional cover made for this book. Could you please delete the current cover and I'll add the new one. This is a short story not for sale anywhere, so I can't link to the cover. Thank you!

Brilliant, thank you! Added the new one.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Change reverted.

Goodreads does not delete publish covers.
Alternate Cover Edition should be added instead


message 5: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Mel,
Is this book available anywhere?
On your website it states: 'Exclusively available through signing up for my newsletter'

I wasn't sure if I'd get in trouble for putting the sign-up link. You actually get two things, Diplomacy, which is a short story, and a novella of about 130 pages: https://melgough.com/newsletter

What do you mean, published covers? It's a cover I made myself, the story doesn't even have an ASIN number.


message 8: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments What I meant is that this book has been sent out with the cover it currently has on Goodreads and users want to list the edition with the cover they have.

But form what you are saying I don't think this book qualifies as published work.

Could fellow librarian confirm what are the rules?

Wynn (wynnga) | 1074 comments If a user is required to sign up for a newsletter to access a book, it is not considered published by GR standards and should not be on GR.

From the manual:

Mel Gough (melgough) | 10 comments Thanks for clarifying. I'm happy to add the link to my site in case that helps?


message 11: by Mel (new)

Mel Gough (melgough) | 10 comments No problem. Could someone delete it then, please?


message 12: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments The book was set for deletion.
Sorry for the confusion, Mel.


message 13: by Mel (new)

Mel Gough (melgough) | 10 comments Don't worry! It makes sense now, thanks for the help.
