My book is a free version! Anyone knows how long it will take to be listed?

Free or paid...it will take some time. As you can see there are approvals between 2 weeks to months on difference threads.
We are all waiting...:)

i'm at 14 days now -- and nothing.
i know this stuff takes time, but when you read on the itunes connect site that if your book isn't up in 10 days, contact them -- i do/have -- three times -- and no response at all. look, if it takes them 28 days to approve a book, fine -- just don't tout the 10 day turnaround. not impressed at all with how ibooks author or the entire itunes conect porcesses are "working". suggestion for apple: charge users a $10 fee for priority approval. as snail pace-slow as this process if becoming, i can't imagine any user not gladly paying -- to prevent falling into limbo status.

14 days for me. I contacted the iTunes staff and was met with a message saying "Due to a high volume of requests...your request may not be responeded to...." Or something like that. FAQs state that you should see a yellow "pending" light when you submit your book. Currently mine has a red light with a "Not on 1 store" status. When I click "more info" it says it's awaiting quality assurance clearance.
It's a paid book. Its frustrating. I'd like to see a return on my ISBN purchase LOL

Received the "high volume" email today. Not happy.

I did not receive this - is it good or bad news?
Anyway, I got 11 books uploaded, 1 got approved on 11th days, and the rest have been waiting for 2-3 weeks now.

The last title I had in limbo went live last night, I wish I would have marked the inital upload date but I am thinking it took just over thirty days to be aproved. In addition it was 25 days "after" fixing the "unknown" issue.
Its called Phalaenopsis Culture Plus if you would like to have a look.

One of my books are in the itunes library on Feb 22, 2012. I guess I overlooked one of them.
I just took a chance and looked in my account. did not get an email.
Giants & Dwarfs
Tushar N. Dadarwala
Not sure how to link to it to post on Social Media sites. Any suggestions?

After the book is published.
I go to the "Rights and Pricing" section
Under Status, it is red "status error". any idea what that means?
The book appears in the store when I do a search. but not sure what the status error means.

I occasionally saw these when the system is slow - it just can't show the status of green or red light.
Nothing to worry about.

My 10 uploaded books are 3 weeks right now... so tired of waiting. Apple rains on the enthusiasm I have on iBooks Author.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 6, 2012 6:31 PM (in response to MrBones)
Just learned I went from two reasons for not being on store to one: "Unknown Issue. Due to an unknown issue, your content is not on the store. Please Contact us for more information." I had this same "Unknown Issue" initially (17 days ago) and contated them to no avail.
Anyone know what it means to go from two issues to one?
As limtc mentioned, my initial enthusiasm for iBooks Author is fast dimishing. Sigh...

I don't think Apple cares about iBA books at all. They should have a section just for iBA books.
