    I recently messaged CS about this and a rep said that there's no guarantee that Barnes & Noble or other outlets will pick it up online, if you buy the expanded distribution? Is this true? If so, it was a waste of 30 bucks.

    Was your book approved for Premium status?

    Sorry! I thought you meant Smashwords. Someone was just saying last night her book has been picked up by B&N. She published in October.

    Sorry to confuse you. I was the confused one. :blink:

    Try contacting B&N and ask them about it.

    Interesting. I've published 4 books through CS and everyone in the Extended Distribution Channel can be found on B&N. It can take up to 6 weeks to go through the system. How long has it been since you signed up?

    I've had it take even a little longer than 6 weeks, but it has ALWAYS appeared.
