Adjusted book delivery deadlines.

November 6, 2015

To prepare for the winter season, we’re adjusting our deadlines for book deliveries. If you plan on releasing new books on iBooks in December 2015 and January 2016, check the following delivery deadlines:

Release Dates Book Delivery Deadline
December 18 to 31, 2015 Monday, December 14, 2015 (PST)

Keep in mind that if you deliver your book after these deadlines, we may not be able to make it available on the release dates listed above.

We do not recommend making a large amount of deliveries or updates, such as pricing or clearance changes between December 22, 2015 and December 29, 2015.
