Hi. I'm Eric Stone, author of five books, all of which are for sale for Kindle. I'm also a great lover of my Kindle. I was recently on a trip to Thailand and Indonesia - where two of my books are set (I used to live in Asia) - and during the five week trip I read 12 books, seven of which are still in hardcover. There was a time when that would have meant a super big suitcase, weighted down with books. Instead, it was just my Kindle. It was a great experience. Selling my books on Kindle has also been a great experience for myself and my readers Hardcover and trade paperback copies are still available on Amazon, but people have to pay a lot more for them, and I make less in royalties. Kindle is a win-win for me as an author and my readers. In any event, I'm happy to be here and looking forward to finding these forums useful and fun.

Eric Stone
Author of the four Ray Sharp detective thrillers set in Asia and based on stories I covered while working as a journalist, and also WRONG SIDE OF THE WALL, the biography of Blackie Schwamb, the greatest prison baseball player of all time.

Welcome Eric! Books sound good. I'm reading James Clavell right now, enjoying the Asian theme a lot.  :)

Greetings and Welcome, Eric!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards! We have many areas that you probably will like. Have you been to The Book Corner yet? That's the area for discussions about books (naturally :D ). That's also where you will find threads about books Recommended by our Members and a list of additional sites for Book Lovers.
Then there is the Book Bazaar where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe that has discussions about writing, publishing and many other topics. Here is a link to all the KindleBoards authors:Unofficial master list of Kindleboards Authors. That is also where you will locate Bargain Books and even Free Books threads where you can get reading material at low or no cost! Here is a link to get you started: Master list of free & under $1 titles available from Amazon.
If you have a question about your Kindle or it's usage, check out the FAQ or the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting . Or, just ask your question. We have many helpful and knowledgeable people here at KB and we feel there is no such thing as a "dumb" question. Questions about KindleBoards may be answered at Your guide to Forum Speak! linked from Forum tips. If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum. There are a few points there particularly for authors. Need help setting up your signature line or avatar? This will be just what you need: Creating Signatures - An Updated tutorial.
Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery, where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found.
Have you been to the Accessories area? There you will see information about covers, skins, lights, bags, stands and many other items to allow you to personalize your Kindle.
Looking to just kill some time while you are waiting for your Kindle or if you have your kindle, want to try something different? Try INFINITY Game - Word Association or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! in the Not Quite Kindle area.
Sorry for the long post, but there is just so much to do, learn and like about KindleBoards that I just get carried away. :)

Welcome.  And congratulations on having written 5 novels.  No mean feat.  I know.  :)
Like you, I'm an enthusiastic Kindle owner and love downloading books.  And writing suspense novels. I'll check yours out :).

Best, Joan

Hi,
New Author here. It is nice to meet you and see the types of works you have written. I am still new enough to be nervous. I write fantasy and have recieved a few good reviews so far. So exciting.
I also read and review books and am looking into getting a kindle. Are they easy to use? I have heard some conflicting comments.
