Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

I am a brand new author in the process of figuring out kboards, and this thread is absolutely brilliant! I am working my way through the suggestions in the first post and everything is straightforward so far. Wish I'd found this forum ages ago!

Hi, I'm one of the new Kindle authors feeling my way around the site. I've already learned a few things and I'm going to work on doing a signature.



I too am new (just registered today) and I am learning my way around the forum. The first thing I noticed is my profile is generic and in order to modify it to include a picture I must make at least one post. I hope this counts as my first post so I can add my profile picture and list my books! Looking forward to learning more and to sharing my books. My website can be found at: www.michelangelotangelo.com and my name is Wayne Gulley (highdesertdweller).

Um. Dumb question. How do I insert an image into a post? I'd like advice on some book covers I'm working on, but I don't see the spot to upload an image? Am I missing it??

Is there a way to block threads so I don't see them again?

If I block a user, will I be so fortunate as to never see any thread started by that user ever again?

Inserting cover images
« Reply #205 on: March 04, 2017, 05:00:16 PM »
I click the icon to insert an image, and i get
[img][img]
what is that supposed to do or mean? My book is in kindle scout and not in amazon, yet i want to display my book cover on every post. This does not seem to be easy to do for the newbie. Why does the icon not prompt me for a download?

New post on my blog: can I share it?

I wrote a pretty comprehensive post about getting reviews for your book on Amazon.

Can I share it in the community?

Here is the link, if you'd like to see it beforehand: www.authorstech.com/get-book-reviews

Thanks

 ;)
