DTP admin -

Could you please check on ASIN B001A7X0BI and see if it's propagated to its categories yet? It should be in:

Fiction > Fantasy > Epic
Fiction > Fantasy > General
Fiction > Romance > Fantasy
Fiction > Science Fiction > Adventure
Fiction > Science Fiction > General

I've manually searched for the title by category and publishing date - it's in the Amazon catalog (viewable via direct search on title or ASIN), but doesn't show in the categories as far as I've been able to see.

This was originally published at the start of May and it still hasn't propagated - people can't buy the book if they can't find it!

Thanks,
Mike

It’s gratifying to see that I’m not alone on this issue. Until now I haven’t seen posts from anyone else that their books aren’t showing up in the lists on Amazon, although they are in the catalog if you search by title or author.

I wonder how many other people are receiving no representation in the lists because that part of the Kindle conversion just doesn’t seem to work. I also published in early May, and my book should have appeared in at least ONE of the categories by now. To date: NADA.

no, you're not the only one, unfortunately! it would be nice if one or the other version of the TWO that i now have on the shelf (same book, different ASINs) would work fully: the original one refuses to go live; the second/new one refuses to put itself into the categories.

well, hopefully the DTP admins will show up again at some point - i don't think we even got a full visit on the boards last week! :-(

cheers,
