I used the Global Distribution option on May 16 and it's June 20 and it still hasn't made it to Amazon or Ingram. I've not heard from anyone, either, so I don't know what to tell you.
How long has it taken for your book to show up on Amazon?
I realize that Blurb (or Ingram) doesn't have the ability to know when a book will be listed on Amazon, but I'm curious as to what other people's experiences have been. The FAQs on Blurb say that the book should be picked up by the Ingram catalog within a couple days of submission, and the book may get on to Amazon within seven days. It's been 12 days here and a Google Alert for my ISBN hasn't produced any results. I'm also not getting any response from Blurb when I've submitted questions directly to them. I'm feeling like I need a little encouragement here. Thanks!

How long did it end up taking for your book to appear? I've been waiting about 5 weeks and still cannot find any reference to it. Books I published previously (March 2015 and March 2016) only took a couple weeks. Thanks!
I finally contacted Blurb and they found out there was a setting that wasn't correct that was keeping it from appearing as available for global distribution. So I'd definitely contact Blurb and explain how long you've waited. They may need to fix something like that at their end.
Thanks! I have submitted a support request.
