Approved for Premium Catalog !!!
Good news! I just received word the book is approved for the Premium Catalog. That means that Smashwords will be distributing the book to Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Sony, Diesel and the Apple iStore. It's already up on Smashwords and Amazon. It pays to be a squeaky wheel. I emailed them (Smashwords) about the 10 day delay. Mark Coker (CEO) emailed me back. Apparently there is a backlog of books to be approved, but he put it through. I had a feeling. When I uploaded the book on 3/21, it started at 596th in line and took 7-8 hours to get in, and another 24-36 hours to be published. I had been expecting a shorter turnaround.
