It shouldn't take that long. Check your email and spam folder for an email from Amazon. If you don't have anything, contact them and ask what the hold up is.

I know I've been beating this drum for two weeks now, but that's exactly the point: TWO WEEKS!!!!

All I did was change price of an ALREADY published book and it's STILL in review (13 days and counting!).

I too had a book already published, I updated the price and it has gone in review. Waiting Waiting.

Got this email recently:

Hello,

During this review period you are welcome to submit additional books for review, but publishing may be delayed until this review is complete.

You CAN publish somewhere else! Amazon is a bookseller, not a publisher.

I published a new edition of a book yesterday, and it was live within a couple of hours, with the Look Inside updated within four hours. Perhaps there's a double track system now--something that publishers (WE are the publishers) have been asking for for years.

To my knowledge, nobody has yet defined "high risk activity." Sounds a bit like unprotected sex, doesn't it? My best guesses are: naughty content, otherwise offense content, possibly scraped content, possibily plagiarized content.

I published a new one the other night, three hours later it was up for sale, but showed on my bookshelf as being published. That was at 2 am and I got the email by 8Am that said it was published.

Mine is "publishing" for more than 12 hours... Does it mean I passed the review?

Is there anyone facing the "high risk" answer with the book as publishing instead of in review?

So its might said its publishing so this is means is that, they are have to wait for that to put it on your books on through on the Amazon for the confirmation about your same books to be in the " LIVE" Only so they are will to be putting it on the Amazon Site.. whatever Amazon is to decide it to publishing it on Live Amazon.com or others retailers...

Or Just type it in your Amazon Name and its will be in there..
