Preview button checked but grayed out - no preview of book online

After much difficulty, i was finally able to check the preview button, but it is grayed out and the book cannot be preview online. Anyone have an idea of what’s wrong?

Hi Hypoman,
We did have a few issues with rendering previews last week, but it seems to be all fixed. And I had no problem seeing the preview on your book—your photos are spectacular by the way!

FIXED? You’ve got to be kidding! I just checked out preview on my new book: pages are chopped into gray slabs. Some go away, some stay. The thumbnails at bottom are chopped up; clicking on one does not bring up a page, ie, they are useless. The only way to "turn" a page is to click on the big version – then you get gray chunks, and EXTREMELY SLOW. It’s only 15 pages!!!!!

In other words: PREVIEW IS WORSE THAN USELESS. It only turns people off and makes blurb look like a bunch of amateurs.
