Crispin Kott (stuporfly) | 7 comments Hello,

I'm the co-author of The Little Book of Rock and Roll Wisdom (Lyons Press, October 2018) and I'd like to request a cover change to the following...

You can confirm this is the correct cover on the publisher's website...

The cover that's on the Goodreads page is an earlier version that has since been rejected prior to publication.

Crispin Kott (stuporfly) | 7 comments Sorry for the bump, but I just wanted to follow up...

An eBook version of the book has been added that has the correct cover. I'm still hoping someone will be able to switch the hardcover version to the same cover for the reasons stated above. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer. I know everyone is busy and volunteers, so I'm not attaching any urgency here. If it's possible to change it ahead of the release date in October, that would be awesome.

Thanks - Crispin

do you know if any advanced reader copies (in print or electronic) were distributed with the old cover?

I added Kindle edition for now:

Crispin Kott (stuporfly) | 7 comments Hi Olivia,

Thanks for your help. So far it's only been sent out digitally via Edelweiss, and it's got the correct cover there. It's mostly my fault that the earlier cover is on Goodreads, as I added that to the listing after our publisher said they were going with it. And then they changed their minds and are using the cover that's included in the eBook listing instead.

There was also, briefly, a cover image between the two discussed here, but that was quickly pulled from websites after a typo was discovered. But hopefully that doesn't surface anywhere again!
