Same here - I have 2 ebooks in "publishing" since April 28 and 29. I'm getting frustrated! I can't upload covers for either of them or set the free promo.... And I'm paying for Facebook ads as we speak. :(

Mine says the same thing... BUT it WAS published and is available for purchase. I haven't got the "congrats" email either, but the book is up.

As of May 2, my two have been in PUBLISHING state for about 4 days now and I can not get a reply to e-mails to Amazon.

ditto here. odd, since the ACIN was assigned almost immediately and the book page is addressable by URL, also I could read the "look inside"
so what's the sitch, KDP??

OK, this is my final post on this, i promise. Even though my book was In publishing and still is... 1) it got an ASIN and the URL is active, and 2) the book sales page is active, with all information available and best of all 3) I already sold one, so the sales backend is functioning.
there must be some wierd status in the author booklist that's not being updated for some reason.

Same here - AICN, URL and I've had 6 sales today and yesterday. It concerns me still, though. The look inside thing isnt there for it, and on the dashboard it says enroll under the KDP Select, which I already enrolled for, so I don't think it's actually in the program. It's had no borrows, certainly.

Glad to see I'm not the only one. Usually, it goes through the "In Review" and "Publishing" in less than 12 hours, but my book has now been "Publishing" for two days.

The same goes for me. I need to make a revision and it is stuck in "publishing". It's killing me. It's been just over 2 full days now. ~50 hours and counting.

I contacted support and this is the response I got back:

"I'm sorry for the trouble you are experiencing since your book "xxxxxx" got stuck in Publishing status. Our technical team is aware of this problem and are working hard to fix it as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience while we fix this problem."

Same here. I uploaded my second Amazon title about 30 hours ago, and it is still "publishing."

Updates to my first title went through just fine...none of them taking the 12 hours Amazon says by default.

Not sure now who to contact about it, but it seems to be a common problem in the last few days.

Got this email from KDP Support about this issue:

"I'm sorry for the trouble you had, as your books are still in the publishing state. Our technical team is aware of this problem and are working hard to fix it as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience while we fix this problem."

So, no big deal. It won't last long...

Yes, I got that email on Monday.

Nothing has changed since then, though. Three titles still in "publishing" on my bookshelf (as they've been since Saturday).

Still stuck on Publishing since 30 April. And of course this is one time I really need to make a big edit.

I am having the same problem except it is now over 48hours! I changed the royalty settings on one of my stories and since then it has been in "publishing" and I cannot access any of the editing tools. What's going on?
