Kristen Luciani (kluciani) | 11 comments Hi, can you please help me? I want to change the book cover for Ruling the Mob, so I added a new edition with the new cover, but the old one is still showing up. Can you please assist? Thanks!

You don't have to add a new edition, you simply have to replace the cover image.

That is only allowed if the cover in question has not been published.

Kristen, were any advanced copies sent out with the older cover?

Kristen Luciani (kluciani) | 11 comments No, nothing was sent out with the older cover. It was a placeholder. I have another question though - this is book 2 of a duet and it is part of a larger series. How can I add a series and update the title to show it is Book 2 of the first duet in the series? I tried twice but the screen bounced me to my profile page. Thanks!

I have something similar. I have a book called A silent Pursuit I can find the book but covers and ISBN-13 don't match. I don't know if it's a different edition or not. I hope you can help.

Thanks for confirming.

I suggest starting a new thread in the Serieses folder with links to the books in question, name of the series, and and other relevant information.

Authors can't delete a cover image.

Also, when changing a placeholder cover to an actual cover (or for any other valid cover change) please leave a change comment mentioning why the cover was changed (at the bottom of the edit page, just above the "save changes" button).
