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.
