While people are waiting Lulu should instill a number system to see how close their book is to being checked by the quality control team. (Ebooks Distribution)

Hello Smbysh

Thanks for your recommendation.


Unfortunately, the process we use to approve book is not a linear one. There are several automatic filters that identify "spam" books, current titles on the NYT bestsellers list, and all public domain titles listed in the Guttenberg project. These books are identified and dealt with in batches depending on which filter identifies them.


And, at this time, the QA process is pretty quick with a review and approval time of around 2 days.
