Product Description
Andron’s life goes into full wtf mode when he accidentally downloads a space virus, after enrolling his old computer in a SETI-like program.

A virus that crashes the entire Internet. A virus that has a name. It’s Cygnus, a foul-mouthed digital pest, who was expelled from a dystopian planet Earth.

And it only gets worse.

Cygnus strong-arms Andron into doing his dirty work. But, goes too far when someone winds up dead. That’s when Andron discovers Cygnus’ shocking plan.

A plan to hijack a human cloning trial using blood from a burial cloth, so that he can come back as Terra’s Jesus.

Andron comes to the only conclusion he can. That he has to stop this psychopath.

But, how can he stop a digital god who’s holding all the cards?

What if the only person who can help him, can’t decide if she hates him, or just thinks he’s nuts?

Does such a keyboard exist anywhere for the 1st generation Kindle Fire (not HD) in which you can plug into the device's mini-USB port? I've seen so many USB keyboards on Amazon for other android tablets, but they are either:

a) not compatible with any of the Kindle Fires at all or
b) only compatible for the Kindle Fire HD versions

I love my 1st-gen Fire and really want to turn it into a multi-purpose device in which I can use for both reading Kindle books and writing my own books, because it's more portable and convenient than a laptop.

So does anyone know if a keyboard exists anywhere in the world that's compatible with the 1st generation Kindle Fire? Thanks! :D

No, sorry, RM.

The USB port on the original Fire was designed for the Fire to be connected to a computer, not for connecting devices to it.  The lack of ability to connect a keyboard either via bluetooth or USB was one of the major complaints about the original Fire.  It certainly was my major issue.

You may wish to upgrade to the Fire HD.  Amazon will take original Fires in as trade-in.

Well, AMAZON, will pay you as a trade in. . . .you get an Amazon gift card, as I recall when you return it.  On the site search for electronic trade ins, or something of that sort.

Here at KindleBoards, we have a section where people are looking to sell older items or buy second devices, etc.  It's under the heading "KindleBoards Market Place". :D
