B. Random | 3 comments Hello
I have tried to delete the old cover on my book but it says only librarians can do this. If you check Alienship by B Random, you will see many editions which overlap of the more modern cover and I would be grateful if you could change this or delete the old one altogether as none sold in that format. I am not sure of the protocol but ideally it would be great if all my books could just have the most recent paperback and kindle editions listed. Anyway grateful for your time and attention to sort this out. Many thanks.
