Glad I've found the place! I'm an author about to delve into self-publishing, and I'm eager to learn as much as I can about the world of Kindle before I get started. I look forward to being part of the community =)

Thank you very much for the warm welcome, Harvey. It's great to be a part of a supportive community. I'm a longtime journalist (25 years) who has finally gathered the courage and karate-kicked the self-doubt and about to publish my first book on Kindle.

As the new kid on the block, could someone point me to instructions for creating my profile and signature.  I went to modify profile, but the only options were for security questions and changing passwords.

Many Thanks!

Welcome, Stacey! I had the same question when I came here not too long ago. You can't modify your profile, create signatures, etc., until you have a few (10 maybe? Can't remember) posts under your belt. So dive in, make comments on those things you're interested in, and enjoy! :)

First post.

Just purchased a Kindle Basic. As chance would have it, I wandered over to the "Voyager Watch" page and, riddled with feelings of shock, awe and inadequacy, beat a hasty retreat; gotta start somewhere I guess.

I have been working on and off for twenty years on a collection of prose and verse, always thinking
that the traditional publishing route was just too much of a low-percentage undertaking. However, with the advent of the e-book self publishing alternative, I am awash with optimism. My piece stills needs some tweaking and coding for this format, but  my book cover is designed and itching to go. I took up computing a few years back with graphic design, web page design, etc. as a hobbyist, which will come in handy in this environment.
This board seems to be quite friendly and well run. I look forward to fully interacting as I get to know my way round.

(Actually I do like my little Kindle Basic Touch, it is so clever and does so many things considering what I paid for it  :D)

Thank you.

Hey all, I'm a Canadian travel writer who currently lives in Paris. I aspire one day to self-publish full length novels for Kindle. For now, if you're interested you can check out my writing at www.danvineberg.com. See you all around the forum!

Just signed up, my mom is getting me a Paperwhite for Christmas and just like anything, I figured there had to be enthusiasts out there in case there are tips & tricks that'll help my experience.

So glad to have found you. Just self-published my first book on Amazon in paperback and kindle formats. Need a lot of advice about promoting and marketing, and Kboards seems to have plenty. Looking forward to reading the posts and absorbing tips.

Just signed up a few days ago.  I'm a long time Kindle owner and still use a k3.  Sadly, I know I do not have the skills to be a writer, so I'm going to stay as a reader.

I've been looking for a place to plop my first post and I guess this thread is a good place to start.  ;D

I've owned two Kindles, my first was a wonderful old Kindle with a ridiculously expensive cover that I bought just for the light. Then one day my son stepped on it and I had to bid it farewell. I now own a Paperwhite, which is sexier, but I still miss the ole girl I originally had.

Hi, everyone.

Nice forum you have here.

My name is Joe Mynhardt and I own Crystal Lake Publishing, a Dark Fiction publisher of eBooks and paperbacks. I'm a big fan of my Kindle, as it allows me
to do a lot of editing in odd places, as well as read, of course. And I ran out of physical shelf space years ago.

I won't be as active as I'd like to be, but I'll be sure to drop by from time to time. Being a publisher, editor, teacher, and the odd author makes for a hectic schedule.

See you around.
