I currently have an ePub which is available for purchase here and on the iBookstore. With the launch of the new ePub conversion tool at Lulu.com, when I click on the 'Manage Distributioon' link, it is now listed for the Nook as well. I was wondering, how long will it somewhat take for my ePub to be listed on Barnes and Noble's catalog/website? Or will it appear there? Can Nook users get my ePub from B&N's website, or do they have to come to Lulu exclusively for it? Thanks. R.Z.

I have exactly the same situation. Says Listed on NOOK when I Manage Distribution but no listing on the B&N site. Have I just not waited long enough? If so, what does the Listed message actually denote?
Thanks for any help, folks.

I have the same issue, my e-book is shown as "Listed" for Nook but it is not shown in the B&N catalog. It has been almost 24 hours since its status has changed from "Pending" to "Listed."

Same situation here - but I found mine already as "Listed" yesterday (9/13) but not on NOOK.
How recently did this partnernship begin? Even if we're all preapproved, it's going to take B&N a little time to do a bulk add of titles like that, I would think.

iBookstore is the difficult venue to break into I think, so Barnes & Noble (once your pending is gone) should just be a matter of the company processing the new additions. I find them to be very efficient.

I am guessing since this is a new Lulu distribution, B&N have been bombarded with titles to approve and add. I have used their PubIt! service and have had titles added within mere hours before. I imagine they just have so many titles to add at this point that it is going to take a little longer.
