As you may recall, we ran into some issues with Barnes & Noble selling the Nook version of our new book Lily Does Sweden. Notably the B&N stated “24-72 hour” processing time to put the book on sale extended to . . . one week, two weeks, three weeks . . . and counting.
At first we thought it might be the content. However, after a bit of a research, turns out a lot of people were having their books stuck in processing limbo for weeks on end. Not something B&N really wants the world to know, so not something they posted prominently.
The recommendation from B&N on the Support Boards was simply to go in and redo the setup and upload of the title as if it were a brand new book. According to a few people, who have had success with redoing the title, the redo seem to make the B&N system kick the first version out for sale.
We know. So weird!
Lily Does Sweden was “redone” today. (No, we never stop working!) So, with any luck, it will be up for sale as a Nook this coming week. We’ll keep you all posted as to whether this method really works or not.
In the meanwhile, if you’re on Goodreads, sign up for the Lily Does Sweden book giveaway. We’re giving away two autographed and personally inscribed trade paperback copies this month. There you can also download and read the first two chapters of the book.
Or, drop over to Indra’s WP site A Seat At The Feast and check out the TOC and the first chapter, which is on the Lily Does Sweden Page. If you like what you read, $1.99 on Nook, Kindle, or other epub retailers. Trade paperback ($14.99) is already available on B&N and Amazon as well as other retailers.
