Product Description
Post-apocalyptic dystopia...3000 A.D.
What was once New York City in the past has become a new and protected home in 3000 AD for the survivors of this world but with a cost as impossible rules are made to follow and without question. The world outside New York City is unfit for human survival.
This is a harrowing tale of survival in a post-apocalyptic dystopia.This story will appeal to readers of suspenseful thrillers, and the writing of Philip K. Dick, (Blade Runner). The mysteries within the plot are enthralling due to the powerful writing and compelling characters. Expertly crafted details surround and pull the reader into action. There are many parallels that can be drawn between this world depicted in The Stone Thread and the real world as it is today, so the story will also possibly call the audience's own assumptions about government and society into question. With gripping dialogue and descriptions, the readers will ask questio...

Regarding #2 and being able to personalize the auto brightness:

On page 9 of the Voyage user's guide, it has this posted. The way I read this is that you can personalize it at each light level and it will remember it.

Screen Light: Tap to access screen light controls. There are several ways to adjust screen brightness:
 Drag your finger along the slider until you reach the desired setting.
 Tap anywhere on the slider to select a specific setting.
 Tap the + sign to use a higher light setting, and tap the - sign to use a lower light setting.
Press and hold the "+" sign to select the maximum brightness setting. Press and hold the "-" sign to choose the minimum brightness setting.
Select Auto Brightness to enable the screen light to automatically adjust based on surrounding light. When Auto Brightness is enabled, you can still adjust the light using the slider and your Kindle uses that adjustment in the future. When reading or using your Kindle in the dark, use the Nightlight feature to gradually reduce the screen brightness over time as your eyes adjust. To enable Nightlight, go to Settings, Device Options then Screen Light.
Nice find!  "When Auto Brightness is enabled, you can still adjust the light using the slider and your Kindle uses that adjustment in the future."
I am thinking now that may be the part that is not working correctly at the moment.  But sure sounds like it will be fixable.

Actually I have Kindle for PC - that's what I was wondering - how to send it to my Kindle. I wasn't aware it had a separate address - how do I find that? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

No worries. :)  Sign in to your Amazon account, and go to the section for managing your Kindle, and it should be listed there. Then just attach your .mobi to an empty email and send it to that addy. Wait a couple of minutes, and you'll be in business.

For those struggling with writing a specific amount of words each day, 1k is pretty darn doable for nearly everyone. And our very own Wayne is a wonderful example that you don't need to crank out 5k+ words every day to become a best seller and make a lot of $$. 1k a day is still 30k words a month. That's novella length. Every three months means 90k words, which is a short novel. Those 1k days add up over time. Missed a day or two of writing? Don't stress yourself out over it. Take a breather, then simply try again when motivation strikes you.

Solid advice. I'll be the first to admit I've been slacking lately when it comes to writing every day. Posts like these really are motivating! On that note... *opens manuscript* I suppose I should get to work.

Writers' Cafe / Re: First or Third Person?
« Last post by H. S. St. Ours on Today at 06:30:10 PM »
My personal preference has always been third person past tense, but I will tolerate 1st person if it's well done.

My preference is third person past, because I prefer it in general, but also because first person is very easy to do poorly. If first person is done well, I don't mind so much.

^^^ This right here, is the nature of all things. :)

Writers' Cafe / Re: are borrows replacing purchases?
« Last post by Wayne Stinnett on Today at 06:30:04 PM »
Today will be a record for borrows for me, over 70 and counting. But for me, sales eclipses borrows by three to one. Genre plays a big part in the ratio. Action/Adventure readers probably read a lot fewer books in a month than some genres, I'd bet a whole lot fewer than children's books.

It would have helped if you'd mentioned where in Europe you are. But I'm echoing what the others have said. It's a marathon and so far you are actually doing pretty well for a new writer. Cora also had some good suggestions for other retailers.

As for cheap make-up.  I assume you're continental Europe? Take a look at Catrice which you should find in most drugstores. The quality is very good for drugstore make-up and the price is aimed at teenagers and students. The basics that you'll need really depend on your skin. If you have good skin, you should get away with a concealer, one eyeshadow, mascara, and a lipstick or lipgloss. You can get all of that for around 10 .

There are youtube-beauty-gurus who do videos about buying low budget make-up and who also do tutorials which will teach you how to apply things.
