Greetings,

I am C.R. Jakes. I am a crime/mystery novelist and I will be self-publishing my first novel, Coercion, via B&N and Amazon quite soon. My book, without getting into too many details, deals with corruption, greed, and mutual parasitism in a fictional Chicago suburb that is an amalgam of a lot of different towns in suburbia as well as from my own imagination. The book itself should be published by the middle of this month if all goes well.

I look forward to chatting and corresponding with you fine people not only about my work, but about other authors' work, both big and small.

Thank you. And good luck with your books, as well. Certainly hope I get to publish that many.

Greetings and Welcome, C.R. Jakes!! 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. :)

C.R.,

Welcome to the boards! My first novel, a mystery, should be coming out about the same time as yours. I'll keep my fingers crossed for both of us!

Hi, CR!  Welcome.  I also live in the Chicago suburbs.  Lots of inspiration in this town, right?
