    Hi Jeff! and congratulations on your book!  :)

    Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum.  Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

    A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it and add to it when there is more information, as we ask that authors have only one thread per book.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice). If you start a new thread when you already have one, it will be deleted without comment or warning.

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. If you post prematurely, the post will be deleted without comment.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:

    And the pictures show up just fine in my K2 also.
    Prettier in color on the Fire though.

    Thank you Ann. It's a lot of fun doing something that doesn't require all that heavy research and fact checking.

    How are you doing them?

    I'm using 3D software. It's essentially the same process that Pixar uses to create their cartoons.

    Haha. I'm in big trouble, then. For nearly fifty years I've been embellishing the stories as I've told them to three generations of children. For example: Goldilocks is bored because Grandma doesn't have cable TV or Internet service so she goes walking in the woods.  ;D
