My Books

I just submitted my book using iTunes Producer. How do I view that book on iTunes Connect?

After you submit your book using iTunes Producer, you can view the book’s information on iTunes Connect by signing in and clicking My Books. If the book is not listed in the Recent Activity section, you can use the search fields at the bottom of the page to view the book.

How do I check the store status of my book and what do they mean?

You can see the store status of your book on My Books. The store status will show beneath the cover art on My Books or if you select a book, it will show in the Summary section of the Book Details page. The store statuses are:

On Store: The book passed review and is ready for release. If the release date passed and you do not see the book on Apple Books, the book may still be processing. We suggest checking back in 24 hours.

Ready for Store: The book passed review and is ready for release but the scheduled release date has not yet approached. The book will be available for sale on the scheduled release date.

Not On Store: The book is not available on Apple Books for one or more reasons. To find out why your book is not available for sale, click See Details beside this store status. A frame will be displayed at the bottom of the page which will provide further information for each territory. Also, check to see if a ticket was issued on the book.

The status of your book will not change until it has been reviewed by Book Review. To see if your book is currently in review, see the status reason on the Book Details page in My Books. If the reason for the Not On Store status is listed as Book In Review, your book is currently in review.

I just submitted my book. How do I check if it has been reviewed?

After you submit a book, you can find the review status in the Summary section of the Book Details page in My Books. Hover over the status if you need more details.
