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

    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?

    How do I add an author picture? I've tried nearly everything but it is still not happening. I've added a book cover to my sig but can't find where to upload an author pic

    New post on my blog: can I share it?
    « Reply #208 on: September 11, 2017, 01:52:02 am »
    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

     ;)

    In my opinion it would be better if these rules were in Writers' Cafe page as a part of it, but not as a post. Thank you anyway.

    HI -

    I have a question.  I had a thread in KBoards offering copy editing services quite sometime ago, but I haven't editing much in over a year.  I'd like to get back into it, but I can't locate my thread any longer my searching my screen name.  Am I permitted to start a new one in the writer's cafe?  Thanks!

    Kristie: you can look at your profile and see every post you've made since you joined. You should be able to find your thread that way. You should resurrect it rather than start a new one. :)

    Thanks for all of this information! One question, if I want to request and advertise for reviewers for my book, how do I go about doing that? Is their a thread for that already?

    Hello, everyone. I don't know what the proper procedure is for finding a co-author on here. I am looking for a co-author for a manuscript that I have already completed. I was not able to get it published on my own, and I think a better writer that's already published could turn it into a bestseller. It is a spy novel, and it's only 240 pages double-spaced. If someone could get it published, I would let them take my name off it. I would still want a percentage of the royalties. I will happily send you the a sample or the entire manuscript. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,

    Joe Glennie

    I have nine books in my signature, but when I go to the signature tool, it only has spots for six ASINs. Did something change?

    Long-time lurker, first-time poster here. I just want to say thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread and this community. I published my first novel in June, and what I've learned here has helped immensely.

    Transparency and cooperation are so important in our business, and it's great to see that fostered here. Thanks for continuing to be an amazing resource for authors. :)

    Hello! First post here, and I'm looking forward to meeting other KBoarders. After spending the last year writing a series of five YA dystopian novels, my self-publishing journey is about to begin. Wish me luck!
