Hey everyone - I'm new. And I'm a newly self-published author of two works. I published my memoir, Saturation, back in March and I recently published a short story, Cat and Caterpillar last month. I look forward to learning my way around the boards and getting to know some of you.

And my first adventure here is to bounce around and figure out how to build my profile. :)

Best ~ Jennifer

Welcome, Jennifer!

I'm not sure who told you that KindleBoards is dog-eat-dog; we pride ourselves on being one of the friendliest places on the 'Net.  An occasional flame war does break out, but we have great fire extinguishers and aren't afraid to use them.  ;D  Troublemakers don't hang around here long, it's not fun for them.

If you have any questions, just ask!  Someone will answer you.

Welcome. On a scale of 1 to 10 in the dog eat dog category, I don't think this board has ever gotten higher than a 4, with 3 being more the norm. :)

Welcome Jennifer,

You can relax, this is a very friendly, helpful forum dedicated to Kindle lovers and writers. I've been a Kindleboards member for some time now and I check this site at least once a day and sometimes several times a day and I've never experienced anything unpleasant here.

I wish you success in your writing and hope that you make many new friends here.

Greetings and Welcome, Jennifer!! 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. :)

Hi Jennifer

Welcome aboard. There's no 'dog eat dog' here, in fact it is one of the easiest going forums I've ever been part of. You'll find that people will bend over backwards to help with any problems and offer support whatever the situation. A very friendly place :)

I've been on for a few weeks now and everyone seems nice here. Of course I'm not an author so it's a whole different ball park but I wouldn't worry much. Hope you are able to find some good places to chit-chat. :D
