Can you change the cover of 014003000X Ulysses and use this instead (is less deteriorated)

Honey Brown | 1 comments Hello, could you please change the fuzzy main cover shot of Six Degrees isbn 9781925183085 to the high res image (Photo 1174163) I just uploaded to the additional photos section of the title.

Thanks heaps

1 & 2: Change undone. That is not a site we can use as a source of covers or other book data.

R.J. Price | 10 comments "Change cover" drew my attention.

I have a book here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

And that cover was replaced two months later, which appears under "other editions" as well as an entirely different book (I don't think I added the other book) here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Is there any way to get that second cover as the first cover a reader sees on the first link given? That is the cover for the book now as per Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and various other retailers. If you need the links for the other sites they're below (but may be the Canadian versions):

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RD9YHS2
https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebo...
http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/troub...

The first cover could remain, I'd just like the proper cover to be what readers see during the search, rather than having it down in the "other editions" sections.

As the author, you have that ability. Here's how: http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/31...

I have also restored your profile to Goodreads standard for author names containing initials (lack of which is why the new edition was not showing up with the others). See https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/6...

And I cleaned up some duplicates of your books and created a series for them: https://www.goodreads.com/series/1524...

J.P. Hall (author_JP_Hall) | 6 comments I need a little help...I signed with a publishing company and they required that I unpublished the kindle version of my book so they can republish it under there company... They also redesigned the cover... I place the photo in my photo album I would like to replace the old cover with the new cover..

Also when they publish the new kindle version can I link it to my page by entering the new asin number?

J.P., Goodreads does not delete out-of-print books or editions. Please see http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/22... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/32...

Also, Goodreads policy is to keep all published covers on the site, as users want to shelve the cover of the copy they have. Instead, we add an alternate-cover edition. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/85....

As the author, you will have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

If one of the editions has the new cover, you can make it the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

If not, we'll need enough information to add a new edition. If it's already on Amazon, a link to it will do.
