Avalon Roselin | 7 comments It looks like the goodreads listing for this book is missing the cover, which is a tad odd since Amazon does have it? (iirc amazon owns goodreads). Anywho! Here's the link to Amazon, I believe we're allowed to use them as a source for cover images?

https://www.amazon.com/Stellar-Eclips...

Thank you, please let me know if I need to make adjustments to this post.

The publisher is usually the next best source, if you can find it there.

Avalon Roselin | 7 comments Unfortunately (as the publisher) my site is also a store, so I don't think it falls within Goodread's guidelines to source (and the image itself isn't in .jpg or .png format there).
I don't see an option to upload the image directly but I have posted the full cover on social media, if this helps:

From the edit page:
"To add a photo, browse an image (.jpg or .gif format) on the top right where it says Add a cover image for this book. Then click on upload photo."
