"It took me a long time to think of the right words for this book review. This is the BEST short story collection I have EVER read so far and I have read A LOT! An amazing combination of darkness, intelligence, dry wit and carefully structured plot twists that leave you mesmerized! Highly recommended and needless to say I will read the rest of the author's books!" - Amazon Customer

"I enjoyed each story in this collection. The stories had a connecting thread running through them... karma. The lesson in each was simple. When given the chance to do the right thing ... Do It." - Amazon Customer

"Every single story in this collection held all of my interest until the end. Wonderfully worded and superbly edited, it was a treasure I'll definitely read again.." - Amazon Customer

    Welcome to KBoards, Or Welcome Back ;) OR Hi, glad you're still here. :D Congratulations on the book!  :)

    Much of what follows you should already be aware of, as it was included in the information you agreed to when you signed up. So please consider this to be just a friendly reminder. :) (The posting of this 'welcome letter' doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so we post this note in every thread. :) )

    KBoards is a Fan forum for Readers, Writers and Kindle Lovers. 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:

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function or the Kboards bookmark tool available on each thread) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  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).

    --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.

    --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 KBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar 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 KBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
    Authors: KBoards Tips & FAQ.

    All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum.  Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

    Thanks for being part of KBoards!  Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
