Marcia Mcginley | 8 comments I have photos of the covers of The Half and half schoolgirl, The Sport of the school and The New centre forward, all from my own books. I've added them to my profile. Can these be used instead of the placeholder covers on those records or should I create a new edition record?

lethe | 13664 comments If they are placeholders, they may be replaced. Could you provide the links to the books?

lethe | 13664 comments Cropped and added. I love them :)

You can now remove the photos from your profile, if you wish.

lethe | 13664 comments Marcia, I see that there are 3 editions for The New Centre-Forward: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

Do you know if they are one and the same (in which case they should be merged)?


message 6: by Marcia (new)

Marcia Mcginley | 8 comments The first one says 1929 but the second is a much later book - 1940s I'd say by the plain boards and silver titles. The third one is the same as the second.


message 7: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13664 comments I added your photo to this copy, per the link you provided: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

You added this photo to this edition earlier today: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Is it not the same cover? Should I remove the cover from the 1929 edition?

Marcia Mcginley | 8 comments the dj will be the same so okay to leave - style of artwork, clothing is pure 1929.

lethe | 13664 comments I have merged the edition without a cover with the other undated one. Hope it's OK like this now. https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio...

Marcia Mcginley | 8 comments I have three more book cover photos added to my profile to replace placeholder covers on Ethel Talbot books if that's okay:

Marcia Mcginley | 8 comments 160 pages, n.d. but inscr 1939 so presume first (only?) edition, no isbn

message 15: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Randall | 3 comments I want to add a book with a placeholder cover so I can submit it to ARC of authors, before publication. If I do, will I be able to replace the cover with the permanent cover in a few weeks?


message 16: by lethe (new)

lethe | 13664 comments #15 No, if copies are circulated with a particular cover that cover has to stay in the database. In such cases another edition with the new cover will be added. The only exception regarding ARCs is that the ISBN may be transferred to the first published edition.
