'Homo Optimus' Has Been Approved for Premium Distribution!
...which means it will be on sale in the Apple Bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Sony, Kobo, Diesel, etc. about two weeks from the end of this week (so, around December 17th, approximately). I sent Mark Coker, the founder and CEO of Smashwords, my distributor, an email asking him to look into why the approval might be taking so long. It has been 'pending approval' since 11/2. I did the same thing for the last book. It seemed to get hung up for more than the usual week to ten days. Anyway, I looked this morning and it is approved for what Smashwords calls Premium Distribution. The standards for publication are more stringent. Of course, the sales potential is also much higher, something I wanted to be in place for the holidays when all those new iPads, Nooks and Kindles will be given as gifts.
