Four days I was told, submit it asap! But next time don't play it so close, a lot of people here have gotten their pre-order privileges stripped.
This ^^. Remember though that it is due at 12am.thewitt said:They lock you out with 3 days to go.
This is not true, and I don't know where it came from. I confirmed with KDP Support the first time someone posted this. You are allowed to change your Final manuscript up until the lock you out with 3 days to go.Midnight Whimsy said:I've heard from multiple authors that just because you *can* upload a revised final file after the 10 day deadline, you're not supposed to and though the changes may go through, you still get banned from pre-order for breaking the rules. It seems this doesn't happen to everyone though (case in point, mollemcgregor) but were it me, I would check directly with Amazon before playing with fire.
This makes a lot of sense, and it's good to know that KDP confirmed it's OK. Thanks!thewitt said:This is not true, and I don't know where it came from.

This about this for a minute. Amazon is one of the largest software developers in the world. If they meant you could not change your manuscript after the 10 day final requirement, they would simply lock you out inside the 10 day window, not set a trap and catch you manually...
They deal with thousands of preorders, they are not going to track them manually.
