Seeing the intense interest in the submission and approval process, I figured it would be useful to chronicle my experiences here. I have just finished my first book, and iTunes producer has given me the all-clear for upload.


Stats for the book:


  • Paid book with DRM
  • 27800 words
  • 83 pages
  • 89 photos (1024 x 768)
  • 33 diagrams (some vector graphics, some as JPG images)
  • A few galleries for the images, and a few interactive images
  • 35 videos, totalling about 2 hours 10 minutes in length; one 4-minute video used as the intro media
  • 3 HTML 5 widgets (actually the same widget included at three different places in the book)
  • 1.53 GB file size for the .ibooks file
  • Sample book has 10 pages, 9 images and diagrams
  • Five screen shots for the submission


29 March 2012, 11:00am: started upload. During the upload, iTunes Producer says "Verifying asstest with the iTunes Store…" It will take a while, seeing that I only have 100 kB/sec outgoing bandwidth.
