I'm having trouble updating my books. i have submitted them, but other than my first 2 (which went smoothly) every book I put up now does not go live and remains in draft status is there a reason for this. I do have photos and I am uploading a .doc file if that helps. Grateful for any insight

Hi,
I have had exactly the same problem - first 2 were fine and now next one is stuck as draft - is there a problem with the system?

I'm having the same problem. I just wanted to change my cover a little and resubmitted it and its been days in "Draft" mode. My first submissions were cleared in hours.

What's up Amazon?

Ditto, mine's been sitting in draft forever after changing my cover art... but it's selling as well, so i don't get it... The Judas Syndrome

I know when the storms hit the east coast that it did knock some servers offline, even if only briefly, that and there was a leap year second added which caused further hiccups, I believe Amazon has back up servers and were not affected, but it might be worth bearing in mind that it caused some glitches along the way.

I have the same problem. There must be something with the system. I emailed them to check what´s going on.

I've had a book stuck in draft since Saturday 11th. Just hangs whenever I try and update it.

I managed to update a different book of mine no problem. But this one which says 'draft' just doesn't seem to want to update - although it's selling still, I just can't update it!
