Hello All,

 

I delivered my epub to Apple on March 26th and for the first 34 days my books status had a single red icon, book in review for quality assurance. I continued to wait and last week to my horror, I had two red icons, with a new message of Unknown Issue. It has now been 43 days since I delivered my Ebup which had no problems or errors noted when it uploaded. Ironically, the book is on Amazon and Barnes and Noble which both took less than 48 hours from delivery to being available for sale (and it is selling).

 

Lastly, (can you sense my frustrated ?) my book is a positive story about my 26 year friendship with Steve Jobs who in 1984 sent me the first Imac 128K with a note to "Be part of the future". The book can be found here -> http://www.amazon.com/Steve-Photographers-Improbable-Journey-ebook/dp/B007G1B3TS /ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1336410606&sr=8-1
