Hi, everyone.

Not sure if anyone has encountered this before as it is a first for me. Usually, when I make changes to my book, it updates within six hours. I made some changes ahead of a promotion I'm running today and tomorrow for my book, and, as well, reduced my price and so far none of that has been reflected. I'm just surprised by the delay and, of course, disappointed because one of my promos already went out. Anyone had this speedily resolved?

Wow, no update so far, more than 24 hours later. I don;t believe this.

It does happen. I thought the reports yesterday were also behaving rather oddly.

Good luck! -- NJ

Reports were due on the 15th, and I think that can delay other actions. Too much work for the hamster wheels. It might be worth it to make any changes or schedule any ads for other days.

Also, just because things usually go through quickly doesn't mean it will always be that way. It would be nice, but it's not something to bet on.

Well, I used the contact button to send a message and had the problem resolved in fifteen minutes. Not sure if that was a coincidence or an actual response, but everything's working fine now. Would advise any authors to plan ahead - at least three days out - for any of their promotions.

The best thing you should do is be patient and give KDP like one more day. If it is not still successfully published by then, you have to contact them.
