Still Waiting on Premium Catolog Vetting

For those of you not familiar with Smashwords, it is an online publishing/distribution system for ebooks.  When an author publishes an ebook on Smashwords, as I have done with Astrid Maxxim and her Amazing Hoverbike, it is available for imediate download from their site.  Of course most of the sales do not occur on their site, but rather through their distribution channels to Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Diesel Books, Sony, and iBooks.  To get to those distribution channels though, the book has to be approved by the vetting team for the Premium Catalog.  Unfortunately, they are quite backlogged at Smashwords and they haven’t gotten to my book yet.  So it’s going to be at least a couple of weeks before it appears at the above ebook stores.  I hope they get to it soon.  I’m really counting on all those kids with new Nooks, Kindles, and iPads to buy it after Christmas.
