Marketing Loft [Public] / Re: Missing paperbacks on B&N
« Last post by alhawke on June 10, 2024, 12:45:43 PM »
I'm seeing a few places where authors are saying if they have the audiobooks with a trad publisher, the paperbacks aren't coming down.  Others seem to be disappearing...
I have some books that have audio where the paperback is gone.

I also know of a non-Indie author who has one paperback missing. So it's not just Indie.

It's all reminding me of Hoopla, only Hoopla is picky at the start. They don't remove them later. But, similar to Hoopla, my best selling book which is 1st in the series was dropped. So now readers can only pick up paperbacks later in the series. :doh:

I don't see how they're determining all this. I look forward to more news. Thanks to all of you for all the comments and please let me know if you hear more . My greatest wish is be that it all just reverts back to normal tomorrow. It's a nice wish.

My friend is on vacation, so I checked her paperbacks...they've been disappearing all afternoon.  :icon_sad:

ETA:  This is epic fantasy.

No response on Quora. Seems none of the people who answer B&N questions know what's happening either.

Unfortunately, there was no way for them to know that I was using a different address for both accounts. I doubt my situation is unique, so they probably got a lot of authors who already had accounts caught up in the mess.

But they could have sent out an email giving people the chance to change their email to the same on both sites, before the merge was due to be done.

Or as I suggested earlier, specify the accounts on both so they could be merged.

The fact they didn't is just bad systems analysis planning.

Still getting worse on Facebook.  I believe a few authors are contacting groups like ALLi, but no word yet. Might see more on Monday?  I'm out of B&N, so not really paying as much attention as if I still had any books there.

Side note:  May or may not be related, but one of my free ebooks flipped back to paid this morning on Amazon.  Might be worth checking if a Nook book disappears and anyone has a price match to free on Amazon.

Their status webpage (linked earlier in this thread) indicated that they started the migration with Smashwords authors who don't already have a Draft2Digital account. For those of us who have accounts in both places, the merge may be a bit more complex.

I've just asked a question on Quora about this. Some of those who work there might know what's going on.

Might or might not get an answer.

I get the same result using that method--most of my paperbacks are gone.

I think what's happening is happening gradually. I still have one paperback up for no particular reason.

Ah!  Important note, none of my D2D wide are paperback.
