I sold the rights to my indie novel, listed above, to HarperCollins which is publishing a new version in April 2015. Can I get this one deleted so a new one can take it's place when it comes out?

We like our members to be able to add their exact edition to their virtual shelves. Just as a library would not remove a record from its catalog, so do we not remove books from our database.
