Our printers are currently working through record volume for the current academic year. This has, in some cases, caused print times to be extended beyond our regular expectations. Our printers have been working additional shifts and are steadily catching up. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and appreciate your patience.

  2. Go to My Projects.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. Deselect the distribution channels from which you wish to remove your book.

Note: It will take from 6 to 8 weeks for your book's status to update on retailers' sites. It is possible that your book will not be removed entirely from a retailer's site. Instead, it may be designated as out of print or unavailable. Please keep in mind that used books or copies that were purchased through distribution before you canceled your title may still be available for sale.
