    @Lian J. Bleyk: Hi, it's really easy to change the book cover of our stories on this site. Here's the simple step by step process on how to do it:

    1st- Of course you need to log-in using your log in details on the site. Once you're logged in, click the 'Avatar' on the upper right hand corner of the screen (right beside the 'Library').
    2nd- Choose the book/story that you would like to change its cover.
    3rd- Click the 'three dots (...)' on the top of the 'NEW CHAPTER' button. From there, you need to select 'EDIT STORY'
    4th- Once you're already on the Novel Information screen, select '(+) UPLOAD' button and from there you can upload your new book cover.

    I hope this helps you.
