Well here it is 3 days later and still no change. I can't believe this is normal. It did not happen with my prior books and I've not seen mention of this so called 'normal' delay by anyone else before this week.
I just like to know what REALLY is going on instead of vague excuses.
Just letting everyone know I have the same problem. One new book published Sunday night went live, but it's not accessible in the dashboard so I can't promote it with a free day. A second book updated on Monday and a third updated on Wednesday, both still have status = publishing, as of this morning (Thursday).
I finally got a reply from them too. It said an almost identical thing: 'I'm sorry for the trouble you had with your book, "Shadow of the Wraith," still in "Publishing" in your KDP Bookshelf. Our technical team is aware of this problem and are working hard to fix it as soon as possible.'
I asked about it not being enrolled in Select and he said it wasn't and he has enrolled it for me, but it won't become available until the book has been 'republished'. I don't get that - REpublished?
Mine has been "publishing" for 3 days? They have been selling a 'garbled' Kindle edition that shows title headings and images 'all over the place'? It looks nothing like the file I wanted uploaded..? CreateSpace says I may have "two different accounts"... and the wrong file has been uploaded on one of the accounts and Amazon is still working to publish the 'right' file under the CreateSpace account..? All emails to Amazon go unanswered...? I guess folks will be quite shocked, when they buy my e-book and find is is almost 'unreadable'. I hope Amazon is prepared and will refund their money..:-(.
We’ve identified the books affected by this issue and
our engineers are working to resolve the problem as
quickly as possible.

Mine is 4 hours away from 3 days on "publishing" status. I've e-mailed them twice, and so far have no reply. I know the e-book is available for sale, but the title needed edited again to make it look right. It looks ridiculous right now with the cover title not matching the listed title. Just having some acknowledgment that something is being done would be nice.
