For publishers who received this error message, please select [Actions > Edit] next to the 'Not Yet Put On Sale' title(s) on your My Titles tab in the PubIt! dashboard. Make sure all required fields on the "Edit/Add a Title" page are filled. Scroll down to Section 6, check the checkbox next to "I confirm that I have all legal rights...", and click the green "Put on Sale" button. A message will appear to confirm that the eBook is processing and will be on sale within 72 hours. If you have any questions, please contact the PubIt! Team at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Children's Halloween book
5 days to draw the illustrations
20 min to write the story
Nearly a week and a half of struggling with the release for sale.
I'm sorry, I am so frustrated... but I have followed all of your instructions.
When I created my book in MS Word 2010 I did everything you said to do.
I tried to use ePUB and continually was unable to make it work. I got as far as running the scan and then it gave an error in the report that it didn't work.
I tried uploading my book to B&N and it previewed perfectly.
I tried hitting the sell it button and it gave me the error about tech difficulites every time.
I have now lost the window of opportunity, as between now the 23rd and the eve of Halloween is a little late to be releasing this book.
I tried everything I can think of and have failed at putting this book in a format you suggested.
Is there any source I can turn to to get answers? I am not able to afford to pay someone to do this for me. I am out of options.
I truly appreciate any help you might give me.

I keep getting the exact same error messages too - I even tried uploading various formats (epub, .doc, etc.) . . . earlier today (Oct. 31) the PubIt website wouldn't even open so I am guessing the technical difficulties are still not fully resolved . . .

The cover images system is still definitely broken. Won't take a new image, and won't display the existing image.

Can't get to the "actions" TAB. My book is STILL "PROCCESSING" --for 10 days now! How do I fix that?

I just got that notice on a new book, so I'm guessing your problems aren't yet resolved.
