I am such a klutz when it comes to technology  :'( I don't even know what half this stuff means, and know less about even how to attach things to signatures and link things.  I will try and do some things and pray I don't accidentally do something silly!  :-X

Hi everyone!  I'm new here.  I wasn't sure where to post first so I picked here.  I hope that's okay.  I'm a relatively new self-published author.  My debut novel, The Other Side of Later, is available on Amazon.  I'm looking forward to connecting with all of you! :)

Yes, you may do so, in the Book Bazaar part of the board. You can have on thread per book there, or if you prefer one combined thread for all of your books.

You can also mention the sale in your signature, if you wish.

Thanks for joining, and thanks for asking!


Thanks for the gentle introduction to the rules! :-)

Another novice. I have read the rules and a number of the posts. So hope I don't mess up. I have "finished" my first two draft manuscripts. One is with a copy editor. I attended a course of David Gaughran's on self publishing and was converted. One of the things on his to do list, before publishing, is to get some "advance copy readers" . I wondered if there were such folk around in this forum.

Mark--

Best solution is to post in the Writers' Caf on how to get advance copy readers.  You may also start a thread for your book in the Book Bazaar about your book and asking for advance copy readers and then use that thread as your promotional thread once the book is published!

I'm excited to be part of KBoards and grateful for the community that exists here - it has a different vibe than most other online forums I've been a part of, and I think a large part of that is the Forum Decorum. This is great!

I would like to add my name to the lists of KB authors and genre, but when I click on the "see this post for instructions" link, I receive the error: The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.

Are the lists closed, or must I do something else before they become off limits to me?

Thank you for your help.

I apologize in advance for how this sounds....
Having said that,  THANK YOU for such a wonderful resource. Figuring out where to start and what to do as a new author has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride so this resource filled with advice from people who have been there, done that and would do it again (or wouldn't) has been life-saving. So once again thank you. 
Cheers.

Thank you for providing this fantastic forum. I can't wait to sink my teeth in and find out all I can about ebooks from the other users.

Happy to meet everyone!

Hi all! I'm just wondering about the three verification fields I need to fill out each time I reply to a post. Have I missed a step in registration somehow, or is this one of those things where you're a filthy newbie and the fields go away once you've made a minimum number of posts? It's just that I'm getting a little weary of once again confirming that Ms Christie is, in fact, the author of Murder on the Orient Express.

TL;DR: I'm really human, I promise! rubs tentacles

Hmmmm.... You shouldn't have to do that.  Did you get the registration email?  You should have received an email asking you to verify your account.

This was happening to me too, but after a few posts I'm able to keep posting without the confirmation.

The link that's in the Authors section with the words "see this post for instructions" about placing your name as a KB Author or Genre Author doesn't work. Please update so I can get my name on these lists.

Thanks for pointing this out, we made a change and apparently didn't update the Forum Decorum to reflect the change.

You can add your books to our KB Books database by using the instructions found here:
http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,40577.0.html

And you can add yourself as an author by using the instructions found here:
https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,155442.0.html

I'll update the Authors section.

    • DOMINION FIRST BLOOD BY RICHARD MANN
Re: Forum decorum
« Reply #146 on: August 21, 2017, 08:12:58 PM »
I love this forum.
Dominion: First Blood is his first book. His mercurial book is action packed, fast paced, and guaranteed to keep the reader turning pages to the end. This wholly original book falls within the thriller, fantasy horror, and sci-fi genres. It combines incredible action, hair-raising scares and big laughs. It will shock the reader into thinking about his own place in the world. Warning: This book may keep the reader up all night!
