What a great idea -- for authors and readers alike. I've already seen two books I'll want to read.

Here's an excerpt from my suspense thriller The Mine

It's called death and it happens every second of every minute of every hour of every day.

With one smooth movement he slid the plastic tubes from his father's nostrils. Clamping one hand over the thin face, he used the other one to push up on the man's chin. He could feel the dry, wrinkled skin of his father's face like cold, cracked putty against his own smooth fingertips.

The old man put up no resistance. He had no strength. He did not move his head, didn't try to pull away. His eyes closed once, then opened. He looked up at the man who was suffocating him. His eyes watered, not with tears, but a brief sting of burning panic.

This was the second of the minute of the day. Death was coming in the door.

Something thumped inside the old man's chest. Emerson thought he felt a breeze, a final breath, perhaps, waft past him. The eyes closed.
Emerson slipped the tubes back into position, rearranged the sheet and blanket, then sat down, waiting for the nurse to appear in response to his call.

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--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

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) 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).

--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 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:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum:,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

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