Anyone been able to publish their writing through Google Play Books now that it's recently been made available in New Zealand?

I signed up to the Books Partner Center, uploaded my files and filled in all the forms I could see, seemed simple enough, though I couldn't find the pricing or royalties information.
And my book's detail page has been stuck for well over a week with a label saying "Recent Changes to your Book may Require Several Hours to Take Effect".
I emailed Google support several days and haven't heard back.

Any other writers out there? :)

Well what do you know, I just got a response from Google. Guess I should have been more patient!
But self-published authors like me will need to be more patient still, here's the reply from the Google Books Team:


Thank you for contacting us. 




Your book is currently under processing. I've informed the technical team to trigger the processing of your book. It should get processed and be live on Google Books within a week. However, you will not be able to publish it on Google Play until we completely launch Google Play in New Zealand. Google Books presently, is only working with a relatively limited number of large publishers here who are providing the content for the Play store.


While we're unable to assist you in selling your eBooks in New Zealand until we completely launch this project here, we'd appreciate your continued patience and cooperation till we achieve this goal. If you have any further issues regarding your books on our Preview Program, please let me know.
