Hi everyone!

A friend of mine had suggested I try this popular forum to talk to other great authors and readers; so again, nice to meet you all! (I wish I could update my profile, but somehow I can't get it to do that)

As the title suggests, I'm a new fantasy author but not so much new to the world of writing and literature. When reading, I love to read pretty much anything that attracts my interest, fantasy, scifi, horror, etc, though I do love the classics and that my two favorite authors are Jane Austen and Michael Crichton. The title of my new fantasy series is called 'Acadia' with the first book titled 'The Lost King and the Goddess of Time'; it's part of a trilogy which was initially just a book by itself that was well over 1400 pages, but being a new author and an indie author in fact, it would be very hard to sell such a fat book I think. I'll post a few links if anyone here is curious, since I do love any kind of feedback, positive or negative, I'm very much open to honesty =).

and a book trailer (do let me know what you guys think of it ^_^ ):

When it's not books/writing, I love music (trance, house, Jpop, and Alternative), traveling (I always visit Tokyo just cause I love it lol), and just living the social life =). But enough about me, I would love to get know y'all! Again, I'm happy to join this kindle community (and I hope I'm following the forum rules lol).

Kindly,

Ali M. Naqvi

Greetings and Welcome, Ali!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards! You have to make one post before you can update your profile, it is a way of cutting down on the spammers. But, now you are ready to go! 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. :)

Wow thanks for the welcomes guys!  Definitely have been reading up the forum rules and what not, I'll have to check out the other parts and check out some debates/discussions lol.  Also, I am on goodreads too, but mainly thats where I talk with the bloggers/reviewers (I haven't really seen a discussion area there, and many instead said to check out KB lol).  Again, thank you all, and nice to meet you guys!

That really sounded noobish, no? :p

Hi TJ, glad to meet a fellow fantasy author here ! =)

Nice to meet you too Colin, and I agree very much that most of the groups are quiet or just very shy--I wonder why though.

Btw, I just checked out both your series, Colin and TJ, and I must say, very very impressed!

Mega shy, I think ;)

Thanks for the kind words about my books. I checked out yours and your trailer, too. Looks good!
