Can I order different cover types from one book design for a book created in Lightroom 5?

In the past, I have used Booksmart to create my books. I then purchased a hardcover book. I could then make a less expensive softcover version available for purchase in my bookstore as well as the hardcover version. I've just created a new book using Lightroom 5 (which is great!), purchased the hardcover version, but I don't seem to be able to set a softcover option. Am I missing something, or is this a Booksmart only option? (And if it's Booksmart only, why?)

Books created within Lightroom are designed for a specific cover type. If you'd like to order a different cover, you'll need to upload a new book with that cover type selected during the creation process.

This customer would prefer an instant conversion option to softcover for similar reasons.  If there are exceptions to the layout due to the conversion the then so be it.   It seems odd to have to create a whole new book just to switch to softcover.  Too much work.
